This topic describes the end-to-end process of configuring an Exchange Monitor, assigning it to a device, and getting feedback from the monitor, and shows some examples.
A basic approach to using the Exchange Monitor follows:
To start, it may be simpler to create one monitor for each parameter or service that you want to monitor. For example, a single monitor to check disk space, named ExchangeDisk, is reported in logs with this name. If ExchangeDisk is reported down, you know it's a disk space problem.
Note: The monitor will be reported Down if any of the parameters or services that you selected to monitor in Step 3 are down.
If you have created other Active Monitors in WhatsUp Gold, you'll find that the Exchange Monitor works in much the same way. This topic will take you through a example of how to set up an Exchange Monitor. We'll create a monitor, and add it to the Exchange server device.
