At times it may become necessary for the network administrator to monitor the number of clients logged on to the Exchange Server. An administrator can monitor client logons by doing the following:

  • In performance monitor, click on the + button to add an object

  • Select MSExchange IS Private | Client logons and then click Add.

Performing the above procedure can chart the number of client logons.

If the network administrator wants to see how many people are connected to the Exchange Server at any given time the following procedure can be performed:

  • In Exchange Administrator go to the server object

  • Open the server and private information store; click on logons.

The right-pane displays all information about the account used to log on and the necessary logon information.
