Basic Exchange Monitoring

Hello Powershell.org!  This is the first time I've posted for anyone outside of my own powershell blog site PowerShellMasters.com and I just want to thank PowerShell.org for everything they do for our community.  I think most of you would agree that this site is one of the best PowerShell sites out there today and I am grateful for the opportunity to reach so many PowerShell people.  OK enough with the touchy-feely stuff. 🙂

If you've been a Sys Admin for any extended time then you've probably had your fair share of run-ins with Exchange.  Whether you are a full-time Exchange Admin or just doing it as part of your "other duties" I think we all know you have to keep an eye on this system or it can get away from you!  

Now there are dozens of monitoring solution out there that can help us monitor our Exchange environments and the are great especially in detailed reports.  But who has time to pour over screen after screen of stats?  I wrote the script Exchange_Basic_Monitor.ps1 because I wanted a simple one-page report to check each morning when I get to the office.  There's nothing fancy or overly complicated about this script, but it will definitely let you know where you stand with your Exchange environment.  If you want to read more about this script just follow the link below.  When you are done make sure to come back and check out some more of PowerShell.org's site.

Like I said I'm pretty new to this whole blogging thing, but so far it's been really fun (and a little theraputic too!).  If you have some comments, questions or advice I'm happy to hear it.  Thanks for reading and I hope everyone likes the article.

 

Thanks

Matt
