You can monitor specific server resources from within Exchange 2000. If you want to monitor information about your Exchange deployment other than memory and hardware usage on a server, you can use a Windows 2000 component called Performance Monitor to log workload statistics for any Exchange object. Using Performance Monitor, you can monitor a single computer, or you can monitor several computers simultaneously. This flexibility can be helpful when you want to locate a problem in your system.

For more information about using Performance Monitor, see the Windows 2000 Server documentation.
