Introducing the Archive Manager Reports

About the Archive Manager Reports

The MessageStats Report Pack for Archive Manager helps you to manage the storage requirements for your archived messages and to evaluate your Archive Manager activities. Reports provide a view into your current Archive Manager configuration settings, archival performance, and existing archived message and attachment storage.

The Archive Manager Report Pack provides two types of reports:

The data from real-time reports is not available for custom reports.

When you render a real-time report, the report performance is directly affected by the speed of your network links and network performance. You can set up subscriptions for real-time reports which allows you to schedule them during less busy times.

Due to performance considerations, Quest recommends that you use the Archive Server filter to limit the results for real-time reports to include only one or two Archive Manager servers.

You must run an Archive Manager gathering task for the reports to be populated.

How the Reports Are Organized

The Archive Manager reports are grouped in folders that reflect the report content:

Configuration Reporting: Reports in this folder provide basic information about Archive Manager server configuration. Reports identify which Exchange servers are set for archive management, and provide information about mailboxes that are being archived, data loaders in use, and archive and retention policies.
Archive Server Reporting: Reports in this folder provide information about Archive Manager server activities such as top searches. Reports also include performance metrics such as message processing rates, and provide calculated storage savings for messages and attachments.
Mailbox and User Reporting: Reports in this folder include information about archived mailboxes that lets you identify the top storage users, storage usage by mailbox or group, mailboxes that no longer have an Active Directory account, and inactive mailboxes.
Messages Reporting: Reports in this folder allow you to identify message-specific information such as the most frequently accessed messages, messages over a specific size, and old messages.
Attachment Reporting: Reports in this folder allow you to identify attachment-specific information such as the number and the volume of stored attachments, types of attachments, and users who send the most attachments.
