Exchange Server Back Pressure

Back pressure is a resource monitoring feature with Exchange servers which build into Transport service. ( Mailbox Servers ) The idea is to have Exchange Server detect the issues and take necessary action so the messaging servers wont be completely un available.

There are 4 event ID associated with correlating events and actions messaging server would perform.

Figuring out such event can be very usefully when back pressure becomes the issue.

# Explain event descriptions
Write-Host "--------------------------                              ------------------------------"
Write-Host "Event ID 15004 = Resource pressure increased" -Fore Cyan
Write-Host "Event ID 15005 = Resource pressure decreased" -Fore Cyan
Write-Host "Event ID 15006 = Low available disk space" -Fore Yellow
Write-Host "Event ID 15007 = Low available memory" -Fore Yellow
Write-Host "---------------------------                                  ------------------------"

To automate the process we have developed PS script. You can download from TechNet scripting library.
