Exchange 2010 Management Pack Guide
Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-19
The Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Management Pack includes a complete health model, extensive protocol synthetic transaction coverage, and a full complement of diagnostics-based alerts and service-oriented reporting, including mail flow statistics.
Alerts are classified by impact and recovery action, and are now processed by a new component called the Correlation Engine. The Correlation Engine suppresses duplicate alerts whenever possible to help front-line monitoring technicians monitor Exchange more efficiently.
Most diagnostic information used in the Exchange 2010 Management Pack, including events and performance counters, is specifically engineered for monitoring. Very little tuning is required to monitor your Exchange organization. The Exchange 2010 Management Pack will scale with your environment.
For more information about the Correlation Engine, see Understanding Alert Correlation
The Exchange 2010 Management Pack is engineered for organizations that include servers running Exchange 2010. It isn't based on the Exchange 2007 Management Pack. Therefore, you'll notice some differences in the way you deploy and configure the Exchange 2010 Management Pack if you used the Exchange 2007 Management Pack in the past.
|Running the Exchange 2010 Management Pack installation program installs a new Windows service component named the Correlation Engine service. For more information, see Before You Import the Exchange 2010 Monitoring Management Pack.|
