Maintaining and Troubleshooting

Exchange 2000 Monitors

The Monitoring tab is available on every computer running Exchange 2000 Server. This tab allows you to define the parameters within which your server's hardware and software should function before a warning or critical state icon is displayed; for example, if your server has a 10 GB hard drive dedicated to Exchange, make sure that databases and logs have no less than 10 GB of memory to use. Once resource monitor thresholds are met or exceeded, the monitor displays a warning icon on the Monitoring tab and in the Status window. Regular maintenance should include checking the Status window and the Monitoring tab of each server to see whether resources are low and additional resources, such as memory, are required to ensure server operation.

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. In the console tree, double-click Servers, right-click a server, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Monitoring tab.
