Exchange 2007–A Queue Monitoring Console simply built


 

Using my DTW (Document-Tool-Walkthru) Excel based tool that you can download through : http://www.opsvault.com/how-to-build-a-simple-and-efficient-windows-monitoring-solution-dtw/

 

Here is a nice HTA console quickly built with the above Excel tool that I called “DTW” tool :

And here is the code generated with the help of my DTW. Copy and paste the below code into a notepad that you save as “LocalQueueMonitor.hta”.

The below generated HTA file will only run on a local Exchange 2007 server, but the DTW enables you to easily build a console that will run against remote server(s). Plus, you can play with the “Console initialization parameters” as you want to customize the look and feel and behaviour of your console !

Here is the code, generated by the DTW tool, and that will to generate an HTA file that will monitor the local Exchange 2007 server queues:
