SNMP Monitoring Agents

Microsoft Exchange Server complies with RFC 1566, which defines industry standards for the Management Information Base for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Mail and Directory Management (also known as MADMAN MIB). If your system supports SNMP, you can use SNMP to monitor and troubleshoot Microsoft Exchange Server.

Microsoft Exchange Server supports MADMAN MIB by making Windows NT Performance Monitor counters available as MIB objects. A subset of the MTA and Internet Mail Service Performance Monitor counters comprise the variables defined in RFC 1566. However, all counters for these components can be accessed through SNMP because Microsoft Exchange Server provides more comprehensive support than the RFC requires.
