What is MessageStats?

What is MessageStats?

Quest MessageStats provides comprehensive reporting and analysis for key messaging platforms such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, and Microsoft Lync services.

MessageStats reporting offers critical metrics for messaging resource usage. Detailed information for examining mail activity and mail flow allows you to track capacity and improper usage.

Reports provide graphs for highlighting trends and exceptions, offer export options to many file formats, and support scheduled report distribution. A flexible web-based reporting engine allows you to view and to package the information in many different ways.

To gather information from wide-ranging messaging platforms, MessageStats provides a dynamic task-based gathering engine so that the collection of information can be intelligently scheduled, minimizing the impact to the messaging platform and corporate network.

In addition, you can horizontally scale out the gathering processors so that MessageStats can gather efficiently from remote messaging environments.

An intelligent multiprocessor approach ensures that large volumes of data can be copied quickly and reliably. This approach ensures that reports are available and current. You can configure MessageStats in a touchless manner that requires no agents on your communications servers.

MessageStats provides a flexible web-based reporting engine that allows all interested individuals to view messaging information. You can view all reports by accessing the web site directly, by signing up for automated subscriptions that can be sent to any email address, or by exporting to a file, using one of several supported formats.

The MessageStats Components

MessageStats is comprised of the following components, which perform different functions:

The MessageStats Server consists of the following components:

The MessageStats Console is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that is used to administer MessageStats. You can create and schedule gathering tasks, and review gathering progress.

The MessageStats Scheduler Service coordinates the gatherings performed by the MessageStats Task Execution Servers. There can only be one MessageStats Scheduler Service per MessageStats database.

MessageStats task processors collect and process messaging information from messaging environments such as Microsoft Exchange.

The computer on which the processors are installed is called the Task Execution Server. You can install task processors on the same server as the MessageStats Scheduler Service and MMC console. You can also install task processors on a separate computer.

MessageStats stores the information in a centralized SQL database, which provides the content for web-based reports.

MessageStats Reports provide summary and detailed information that includes critical metrics for resource usage, capacity, storage use, quotas, delivery times, distribution groups, public folders, and migration preparedness.

MessageStats Process Overview

To start using MessageStats, you typically perform the following steps:

You create a connection to the messaging environment from which you want to gather data. For more information see Creating a Connection to Exchange .

You create an initial gathering task, using the Create Task wizard and the defined task templates. Usually you create a task using the Default Gathering template to gather core messaging information. For more information, see About the Exchange Default Gathering Task .

Before you gather information from Exchange, ensure that the server from which you want to gather data is configured correctly. For information about Exchange-specific prerequisites and configuration, see the MessageStats Quick Start Guide.

The task processors store the collected data in the MessageStats database, which is hosted on a SQL Server:

For more information about minimum requirements and rights and permissions needed for the database, see the MessageStats Quick Start Guide.

When you have completed an initial gathering, you can view reports based on the gathered information using the web-based reporting component called MessageStats Reports.

MessageStats Reports provides a collection of preconfigured reports that let you to view data across multiple levels of your communications environment. You can change relevant report parameters immediately using Quick Filters or use the Report Wizard to create customized reports based on any data available in your MessageStats database.

For information about MessageStats Reports, see the MessageStats Reports User Guide.

Create, using different task templates, additional tasks to gather information not collected by the default gathering task. Schedule the tasks to run at recurring intervals. For more information, see Extending Gathering Tasks .

You can create and schedule report subscriptions. Report subscriptions can embed a link to a report location in an email message, embed the report in an email, or send a message with an attachment that contains the report. Subscriptions can also automatically publish a report to a file share, to an FTP site, or to a web site.

You can create custom reports using the Web Report Wizard. You can build your own reports based on existing data sources. You can select fields, filters, format, grouping, and sorting options. Custom reports can be edited, depending on your security permissions within MessageStats Reports. For information about creating custom reports, see the MessageStats Reports User Guide.
