Exchange 2007 WMI Counters Template (SolarWinds)

Version 1

    Exchange 2007 WMI Counters Template

     

    This template creates APM applications to ensure the reliability of your Microsoft Exchange 2007 servers by warning you before performance problems occur.

     

    Some of the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) performance counters monitored in this template are only available to Microsoft Exchange 2007 servers that fill Hub Transport Server and/or Mailbox Server roles. Associating this template with a server that does not fill one or both of these roles results in an Unknown status for the unavailable WMI component monitors.

     

    After importing this template, set the Statistic Critical Threshold for the WMI component monitors in the template as follows:
