Why do I need to monitor my Microsoft Exchange environment?
It’s critical to monitor Microsoft Exchange because email is the most vital business application on the internet. Organizations are financially impacted by any downtime, delayed delivery or non-delivery. Aside from the email component of Exchange, monitoring allows IT managers to easily analyze their environment and identify areas to optimize performance and availability.
What are the benefits of end-to-end monitoring?
The main benefits of end-to-end monitoring are complete visibility into what each end user’s current experience look likes enabling targeted troubleshooting and the ability to quickly relate user activity to back-end processing.
How does VitalSigns improve my ability to manage end user mailboxes?
VitalSigns monitors multiple mailbox components and offers multiple reports that provide valuable statistics such as users approaching quota, cumulative mailbox access size, and the largest mail folders within your Exchange environment.
Is it difficult to deploy/install VitalSigns?
It’s not difficult at all. VitalSigns is designed to be agile allowing for smooth integration into multiple types of infrastructures. Nothing needs to be installed on any servers. For Domino, you need a Notes client for Microsoft, you need some PowerShell modules.
How can any end user securely run PowerShell commands using PowerScripts?
The PowerScripts Library is loaded with approved PowerShell commands allowing users to easily run scripts against servers, users or mailboxes within VitalSigns. Scripts are executed using the stored credentials associated with the server. Only users who have been assigned the PowerScripts role can access this feature, and rights can be terminate at any time. To further increase security, an audit trail is created each time a script is executed to show who ran what and when.
Can VitalSigns view all databases and mailboxes within each Database Availability Group?
Yes. VitalSigns offers a Database Availability Group overview page to quickly analyze every DAG in your environment as well as individual DAG health pages to drill in on individual components of each DAG.
Can VitalSigns automatically send notifications?
Yes. IT managers can easily configure alerts using VitalSigns’ existing scripts or they can upload their custom alert scripts. Each configured alert has custom notification settings with the ability to send alarms and reports to multiple users and devices based on time or location.
