About Distributed Installations

MessageStats allows you to spread your gathering activity over various servers. When you install the MessageStats report pack, you must install the various components (such as the task processors, reports, and the MessageStats console) on the server that performs the corresponding role in MessageStats.

The most common scenario is to use a separate MessageStats Server and additional task processor servers.

Another common scenario is to install the database on one server and the MessageStats Server (the MessageStats MMC-based console, the MessageStats Scheduler Service, and the task processors) and MessageStats reports on a second server.

The MessageStats MMC-based console can be installed on a MessageStats administrator's workstation or laptop. The administrator can create tasks and view logs, but task scheduling and gathering are carried out at another location with more robust resources.

You must install the report pack task processors on a Task Execution Server on which the core MessageStats task processors are installed.

For a pure Lync or Skype for Business Server installation, you can install the task processors on a different domain, if necessary.

In this type of installation, the local task processor gathers the data from the remote Lync or Skype for Business servers. The report-ready data is transferred to the MessageStats Database Server and is stored in the database.

The following table lists the report pack components in the order they are recommended to be installed on the computers with different roles.
