If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, make sure all required data sources for the Unified Dashboard are enabled. The required probe must be deployed and must be configured so that required QoS metrics and subkeys or targets are activated. For more information, see the help topic on required data sources for the Unified Dashboard.
MS Exchange Required Data Sources
The MS Exchange 2007 Unified Dashboard requires these probes:
  • exchange_monitor
  • exchange_monitor_backend
  • perfmon
  • processes
  • ntevl
This table lists the QoS metrics and subkeys or targets that must be activated on the probes to populate data in the MS Exchange 2007 dashboard.
