Exchange ECP Performance Console

Just a quick note for anyone else out there who works with Exchange 2010.
While trawling the search engines for a solution to a client issue I stumbled across this (isn’t that always the way it happens!)- the ECP Performance Console. A useful enhancement to the standard tools out there, the benefit of this is that, unlike the other tools, this is run from a browser from anywhere that you can connect to the ECP.

To enable the feature on the Client Access Server navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\ecp\web.config  (or wherever Exchange is installed)

Find the following section:

<!– Set ShowPerformanceConsole to “true” to show ECP’s Perf Console: –>

<add key=”ShowPerformanceConsole” value=”false” />
Change the value from “false” to “true”

Save the file & run the usual IISRESET /NOFORCE

If you now navigate to the ECP as normal you should find Performance Console as a pull down option on the top right of the screen next to the help icon.

You can now view statistics for your server performance
