MessageStats Information Sources

How Does MessageStats Gather Information?

MessageStats collects information about your messaging environment and email usage through a gathering task. You can create different types of gathering tasks using the templates that are available in the Create Task wizard.

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

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.

For more information about the typical steps in collecting and viewing information in MessageStats, see MessageStats Process Overview .

Gathering Microsoft Exchange Data

For Microsoft Exchange, MessageStats gathers two types of Exchange information:

Tracking logs

Log files generated by Microsoft Exchange that track message-related events occurring on or between Exchange servers.

For more information, see Gathering Exchange Tracking Logs .

Exchange Objects

Exchange objects that are provided by an Exchange server. These objects include the following:

For more information, see Sources of Exchange Object Information .

The information processed from the tracking logs and Exchange objects provides data about the flow and volume of email over user-defined periods.

During a gathering, MessageStats copies and processes tracking logs and enumerates Exchange objects, including the following:
