ExMon released (no joke!)

If you’re tempted to think this is an April Fool’s Day joke, no worries – this is the real deal. Yesterday, Microsoft published the Exchange 2007-aware version of Exchange Server User Monitor (ExMon) for download.

“ExMon?” you ask. “What’s that?” I’m happy to explain!

ExMon is a tool that gives you a real-time look inside your Exchange servers to help find out what kind of impact your MAPI clients are having on the system. That’s right – it’s a way to monitor MAPI connections. (Sorry; it doesn’t monitor WebDAV, POP3, IMAP, SMTP, OWA, EAS, or EWS.) With this release, you can now monitor the following versions of Exchange:

  • Exchange Server 2007 SP1+
  • Exchange Server 2003 SP1+
  • Exchange 2000 Server SP2+

You can find out more about it from TechNet.

Even though the release date isn’t a celebration of April 1st, there is currently a bit of an unintentional joke, as shown by the current screenshot:

Note that while the Date Published is March 31, the Version is only 06.05.7543 – which is the Exchange 2003 version published in 2005, as shown below:

So, for now, hold off trying to download and use it. I’ll update this post when the error is fixed.
