Exchange 2016 best practice sensors



I am fairly new to PRTG and Exchange. I was asked to see that is the best practice when we add an Exchange 2016 server to PRTG. What are the sensors that are recommended and does it vary from server to server. We have 4 Exchange servers and when we look at PRTG, it does not recommend the same sensors for all servers.

I just want to know if there is a list of basic sensors that are common to all Exchange servers.

There are quite some - if you hit the Add Sensor button on the corresponding device and search for "Exchange", you'll get eight Sensors that monitor common metrics on Exchange hosts :) Note that they have their own remarks which need to be fulfilled in order for them to work properly.
