Exchange 2010 MP – be aware of events!

 

I admit it, the Exchange 2010 has been fairly improved comparing to its younger sibling, the Exchange 2003 mp. We still have a load of Rules and Monitors, it’s still noisy and we still have to run all the Test-Something.ps1 scripts.

There i one thing that one should be aware of though. The mp generates a LOT of events. I was at a costumer site last week configuring the mp, and i got this:

45202 events! In 10 days! The events are pretty usefull when testing the Test-Something scripts, as they run with 5 min. interval, you will get a lot!

So, do only enable the collection Rules “Script event collection Execute: …” when you need to test this.

Happy event receiving!
