  • Tuning the Exchange 2007 message tracking log ?

    Hi All,

    What should be the configuration of Exchange Server Message tracking log ?

    Code:
    Get-ExchangeServer | where {$_.isHubTransportServer -eq $true} | Get-TransportServer | select Name, *MessageTracking* | ft -AutoSize
    from the powershell above result here's the result:

    Code:
    Name        MessageTrackingLogEnabled MessageTrackingLogMaxAge MessageTrackingLogMaxDirectorySize MessageTrackingLogMaxFileSize MessageTrackingLogPat                                                                                                                                h                    
    ----        ------------------------- ------------------------ ---------------------------------- ----------------------------- ---------------------
    ExHTServer1                      True 20.00:00:00              250MB                              10MB                          D:\Program Files\M...
    ExHTServer2                      True 20.00:00:00              250MB                              10MB                          D:\Program Files\M...
    ExHTServer3                      True 20.00:00:00              250MB                              10MB                          D:\Program Files\M...
    what is the best practice if I want to have a retention of let say 6 months ?

    I'm confused which parameter that is should/can be changes.

    Thanks

    The parameter MessageTrackingLogMaxAge defines how old a message tracking log can be until it gets deleted. Right now in your config it's set to 20 days, so in order to have it for 6 weeks you have to set it to at least 42 days.

    Which value is needed for MessageTrackingLogMaxDirectorySize depends on your email trafiic. If you have a high traffic organization the value have to be increased significantly.
