monitoring the size of exchange databases



Is there a possibility, to monitor the size of the exchange database?

It would be a great feature, because there are the Microsoft size limitations (16GB, 75GB) and a warning by Paessler wouldn't be really bad...

Please try a file sensor on the *.edb file with respective limits.

OK, the reason for my question was the monitoring of the size of the exchange databases. Unfortunally there are two files and I must monitore the sum of this two files. Is that possible?

monitor both files with a file sensor and then use a sensor factory sensor to sum both values up and ad your limits and notifications to the sensor factory sensor
