Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the Exchange server that you want to view. You can use the following values to identify the server:

  • Name

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • FQDN




The GroupSize parameter determines the size of the group to process against for a rollup. The default value is 12.




The HaImpactingOnly switch filters the results to only the monitors that have HaImpacting set to True. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.




The HealthSet parameter filters the results by the specified health set. Monitors that are similar or are tied to a component's architecture are grouped to form a health set. You can determine the collection of monitors (and associated probes and responders) in a given health set by using the Get-MonitoringItemIdentity cmdlet.




The MinimumOnlinePercent parameter specifies the number of members in the group to be functioning with rollup information Degraded instead of Unhealthy. The default value is 70 percent.




The RollupGroup switch specifies that the health data is rolled up across servers with redundancy limits. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.
