Server Monitor

CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is designed to work in a wide variety of scenarios, including multi-server environments. That is why it is equipped with the Server Monitor tool that enables you to view all instances of the program in one place in order to track and manage their operation status and performance. To open the tool, click Server Monitor on the program's ribbon (Fig. 1.).

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

  • services and log files,
  • executed operations,
  • license status.

Info

 Each line (row) corresponds to one particular server (equipped with the Exchange Rules Service) within an organization.

The first section shows information on the status of services including the Exchange Rules Service and the Sent Items Update service. The exact version number of these services is also displayed. You may Start or Stop the services and check their diagnostic files (separately for the Exchange Rules Service and the Sent Items Update) if there are any problems with their functioning (Fig. 2.).

Info

Please note that processing of the first email always takes more time than for the messages that follow. That is why the average processing time will decrease as the number of messages processed by the program increases.

The last section shows the number of licenses currently used per server and helps you to avoid exceeding your license limit (Fig. 4.).
