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's services 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 toolbar (Fig. 1.).
Fig. 1. Opening the Server Monitor.
The Server Monitor window is divided into the following sections:
Each line (row) corresponds to one server (with the Exchange Rules Pro Service installed) in the organization.
Services and log files
The first section (Fig. 2.) 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 can 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.

The second section (Fig. 3.) shows basic statistics concerning email processing, including the number of messages processed, average message processing time and last email proccessing time.

Please note that the processing of the first email always takes more time than the processing of 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 (Fig. 4.) shows the number of licenses currently used per server and helps you to avoid exceeding your license limit.
This section also shows the current license status: the retail version with the number of licenses taken from the license pack or the trial version with the number of days left until it expires. Click the Check used licenses () button to open the overview of assigned licenses (Fig. 5.).
