running the exchange 2010 mp performance tests from remote agents RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have exchange running on a a datacenter. What I would like to do is run the performance test like test-outlookconnectivity from the user networks. I wonder if I could run these scripts from agents in those networks like we can do with websites.

    I think you can try the synthetic transactions in Exchange 2010 MP:


    Appendix: Synthetic Transactions



    Optional Configurations



    Hope this helps.

  • The exchange MP has all this kind of tests but what I would like to know is this. We have 4 offices where outlook users are. We have a datacenter where the exchange environment sits. We have 10MB lines between the client offices and the datacenter. We have complaints about outlook. I would like to test the outlook performance with the scom exchange 2010 mp from the offices.

    What should I install to have these test done from the offices to the datacenter exchange servers? Now the monitoring tests from the datacenter and that is on the same network.

    I think you need to ensure the computers are managed by SCOM. Please also see if the 4 offices in trusted domains or not. If they are trusted, you can push the agents from the console; otherwise, please configure the computer to be managed via certificates referring to the following methods:


    Monitoring agents in an untrusted domain or workgroup using Operations Manager 2007



    Step by Step for using Certificates to communicate between agents and the OpsMgr 2007 server



    Meanwhile, regarding monitoring Outlook performance, please see the following:


    Monitor custom performance counters OpsMgr
