  • I see. You might want to change the data collection frequency of the rule to get more granular data, there might be only one data point which could be difficult to "hit" when you hover.

  • ok the client told me that the perfomance view related to exchange MP under hub transport -----transport queue is the readings he wants

    but to be honest i didnt understand anything from the perfomance view !! he wants actual numbers like an example :

    rule : collect active mailbox delivery queue length = a number not a column in a view

     

    how can that be done ?

    thanks

  • Hi, there are a number of queue-related performance collection rules and monitors enabled by default that look at these for all hub servers.

    ActiveMailboxDeliveryQueueLEngth

    ActiveNonSmtpDeliveryQueueLength

    AgreegateDeliveryQueueLEngthAllQueues

    LargestDeliveryQueueLEngth

    PoisonQueueLength

    RetryMailboxDeliveryQueueLength

    ...

    These are also monitored by defauylt. you can look for example at a Hub server and see the Largest Delivery Queue Length monitor.

    Are there specific additional ones that the customer is asking for?

  • what is enabled more than enough , he saw the perfomance VIEWs under hub servers folder under monitoring tab and he liked it BUT my problem is performance views arent READABLE , how can you read it if its only showing at a specific time one column :P !!!

    he want to see actual numbers like as an example :

    RetryMailboxDeliveryQueueLength = 300 messages ...etc

     

    how can that be done or how to read the performance views in a proper way !!

    thanks

  • Could you explain a bit more what the problem is.

    The "path" column talks about the server, the "Object/Counter/Instance" columns talk about the counter, and the graph displays the counter over time. You can right-click on the graph to select a particular time range if that's what you want to do.

  • Come to think of it, do you want to see the threshold displayed in the graph? OM does not do that today. These are purely data collection rules that have nothing to do with the thresholds the monitors use. The thresholds should be indicated in the monitor itself (overridable if you want to change them), also I believe they are part of the alert message.

  • ok ake let me rephrase :D

    now the performance view , once i click on a specific counter to show on the graph it will start showing me a graph over time , correct ? my graph appears as a straight horizaontal line then at lets say a specific timing like 12:05AM it shows a straight vertical column then back to the horizontal line ( it keeps on the zero level then reaches at 12:05am to 6 then back to zero level )

    i hope this part is clear

     

    now my problem is the following :

    the client wants to know at that time ( 12:05AM , the one that had that vertical column drawn on the graph ) how many retries we have , he want a figure number , he wants a specific number like telling him

    RetryMailboxDeliveryQueueLength = 300 messages

    i know if i override the monitor or rule i will know the actual threshold and based on that i will be alerted but what i want is to know at a specific time how many emails i have in my queue as a FIGURE

     

    hope its clear :)

    thanks for ur help in advance

  • If you hover over the line in the graph, it should tell you the actual number and when it was sampled (looks like a "tooltip").
