How to Configure Mail Flow Monitoring
Betrifft: Exchange Server, Operations Manager 2007
Mail Flow Monitoring in the management pack is configured through the Exchange Management Pack Configuration Wizard. You can configure which servers or virtual servers to send mail to and from.
There is one performance collection rule and two monitors involved in Mail Flow monitoring:
"Exchange Mail Flow Monitor (Receiver Part)" – this monitor verifies that messages generated by the mail flow sender are received and how long the delivery took. Alerts will be generated if test e-mails are not received within the defined interval.
"Exchange Mail Flow Monitor (Sender Part)" – this monitor generates test e-mail messages
"Performance Collection Rule for Mail flow receiver" data collection rule - this rule collects mail flow latency performance data between each mail flow receiver and sender.
Additional configuration (beyond what is done in the Configuration Wizard) can be done on the monitors and rule via overrides.
You must at all times configure the same settings for all the monitors/rule that support the override.
Additional properties of Mail Flow monitoring include:
The interval of the monitors and rule can be customized to control the frequency at which test e-mails are generated.
A timeout value can be configured on the monitors and rule (it is a timed script which generates the mail flow data)
The receiver monitor and performance collection rule support a “Number of max missed runs” override which lets you control how many missed e-mails should be allowed before generating an alert.
A latency value, representing the allowed latency for test e-mails to be received can be configured on the receiver monitor and performance collection rule.
A negative latency value representing maximum allowed clock skew can be configured on the receiver and performance collection rule.
