One of the main areas I redesigned in vCheck 6 was the new plugin concept, In my mind this was a nice HTML output which could be used for more than just vSphere checks, the plugins could potentially be any product which has a PowerShell snap-in or module, and even some which don’t 🙂
Shortly after the release I was contacted by Phil Randal who had done just this, he has taken the vCheck framework and written some Exchange 2010 plugins, this now turns the vCheck report into a Exchange monitoring report too. Awesome stuff !
Now you can have a daily email with your Exchange 2010 details and issues.
Phil has added 6 initial Exchange 2010 plugins which add some great details, these include:
- Basic Server Information
- Database Statistics
- Database Status
- Public Folder Statistics
- Mailboxes larger than x amount of MB
- Mailboxes with deleted items above x amount of MB
So if you have Exchange 2010 then be sure to download this version of vCheck and give it a go, after all it doesn’t cost you a thing and could save you work in the future. Make sure you thank Phil for his hard work on Twitter, his account is @philrandal
An example of the Exchange 2010 report can be viewed by clicking here.
To download this version of vCheck you can download it here which includes the base script and all exchange plugins.
