Good starting values for MS Exchange Monitor Thresholds

Hi all,

Has anyone setup custom thresholds for their MS Exchange Monitors?
We have about 600 active users, just wondering if anyone has configured decent values for IOPs, access time, etc, or are the default (empty) values acceptable?


Thanks!!

Hi Thomas,  

Thanks for bringing this up.

As you are aware,  the  purpose of Threshold and Availability is to trigger alerts when the configured threshold values are reached. That said, please confirm if you are trying to add custom thresholds apart from what we provide in the MS Exchange threshold listings. You can also leave the threshold value fields empty as these are not mandatory.

Hope this answers. However, please brief us more incase you still have any clarifications. 

Cheers!
Sushma.

Hi,

You can leave the threshold fields empty as these are not mandatory. It is recommended to create threshold profiles to be alerted when a specific resource goes beyond the normal expected value. 

As for the threshold values, you can set them based on your requirement. For example, if you wish to be alerted when the Edge messages received exceeds 20, you can set the threshold value for the metric "Edge messages received" as 20 and the alert status as Trouble/Critical in the Add Threshold Profile form for Microsoft Exchange Server (Log in to Site24x7 and go to Admin > Configuration Profiles > Threshold and Availability (+)). When the threshold value is breached, you will receive an alert and the monitor status will be turned to Trouble/Critical based on your setting.  

Hope this clarifies your question. For further queries, if any, please comment in the below thread.

Happy Monitoring!
