The Server Monitor window is divided into the three following sections:

  • Services and log files
  • Executed operations
  • License status

Info

Each line within the monitor corresponds to a particular server within the organization equipped with Exchange Rules Service.

The first section shows information on services' status including Exchange Rules Service and Sent Items Update. Additionally you can Start or Stop the services and check the diagnostic files (separately for Service and Sent Items Update) if any of the services deviates from standard behavior (Fig. 2.).

Info

Please note that processing the first email always takes longer that is why the average processing time will get lower once the number of processed messages grows to reach the actual time.

The last section shows the number of currently used licenses per server so you may control their number to avoid reaching the limit (Fig. 4.).
