Metrics

A metric is an individual piece of information that UC Diagnostics has collected about the performance of a system, such as perfmon counters. The information may be a numeric value (a number or percentage), a string of text, or some other piece of data.

The perfmon counter is visible in the Metric help section in the General tab.

Every time that the UC Diagnostics window is refreshed, UC Diagnostics retrieves the latest value of the metric, which can then be displayed in a drilldown or on the home page.

The Metric editor allows you to view and edit the properties of UC Diagnostics metrics, including their thresholds and severities. You can open the Metric editor for a component or a drilldown by right-clicking on the component and choosing Metrics from the invoked shortcut menu.

When you open the Metric editor, the General tab is open by default. Several metrics contain data source descriptions for the metric. The data source descriptions use the following list of functions.

max(x)

the maximum of a set of values in list x

max(x,y)

the maximum of x and y

min(x)

the minimum of a set of values in list x

count(x)

the number of values in list x

sum(x)

the sum of a set of values in list x

if(x,y,z)

if x is true, then return y, otherwise, return z

snull(x)

if x could not be collected, then return true

avg(x)

the average of values in list x

Introducing the Exchange 2010 Diagnostic Console

The Exchange 2010 Diagnostic Console provides a real-time representation of the messaging system processes and components within specific connected Exchange 2010 servers. You can diagnose and resolve issues using the Exchange 2010 Diagnostic Console.

The Exchange 2010 Diagnostic Console contains the following:

Understanding the Exchange 2010 Diagnostic Console

When you connect to the Exchange 2010 Diagnostic Console, the home page displays a high level summary of your Exchange 2010 server.

The home page contains the various panels, message flows, and drilldowns to help you perform an extensive analysis of the major components on your Exchange 2010 server.

To view detailed information on specific components, right-click a component, message flow, or drilldown and select What’s This, Metrics, or Properties.

The Exchange Diagnostic Console provides you with a real-time representation of the messaging system processes and components within Exchange.

The Diagnostic Console retrieves a large amount of data from a server frequently, which can place excessive stress on a server, affecting the server's performance. Also, using the Diagnostic Console for an extended period of time can consume critical system resources, affecting the stability of UC Diagnostics as a whole.

You can diagnose and resolve issues using the Exchange Diagnostic Console.
