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 2010 Required Data Sources

Processor Counters Exchange 2010
Column
Description
Host
Name of the host where the Exchange server is installed.
Processor User Time
Percentage of processor time spent in user mode. User mode is a restricted processing mode designed for applications, environment subsystems, and integral subsystems.
0 to 74.99 = Green
75 = Red
Processor Privileged Time
Percentage of processor time spent in privileged mode.Privileged mode is a processing mode designed for operating system components and hardware-manipulating drivers. It allows direct access to hardware and all memory.
0 to 74.99 = Green
75 = Red
Processor Queue Length
Number of threads each processor is servicing. Processor queue length can be used to identify whether processor contention or high CPU utilization is caused by the processor capacity being insufficient to handle the workload assigned to it.
Processor Queue Length shows the number of threads that are delayed in the Processor Ready Queue and are waiting to be scheduled for execution. The listed value is the last observed value at the time the measurement was taken.
0 to 2.99 = Green
3.00 to 4.99 = Orange
5.00 = Red
Processor Time Instance
Percentage of time that the processor is executing application or operating system processes.This is when the processor is not idle.
Memory Performance Exchange 2010
Column
Description
Host
Name of the host where the Exchange server is installed.
Available Megabytes
Amount of physical memory immediately available for allocation to a process or for system use.
0 to 49.99 = Red
50 to 75.99 = Orange
76 to 99.99 = Yellow
100 = Green
Pool Paged Bytes
The portion of shared system memory that can be paged to the disk paging file.
Pool Nonpaged Bytes
System virtual addresses guaranteed to be resident in physical memory at all times and can thus be accessed from any address space without incurring paging input/output (I/O).
Cache Bytes
Size, in bytes, of the file system cache.
Transport Queues Exchange 2010
Column
Description
Host
Name of the host where the Exchange server is installed.

50 = Red
Network Counters Exchange 2010
Column
Description
Host
Name of the host where the Exchange server is installed.
TCPv4 Connections Established
Number of TCP connections for which the state is either ESTABLISHED or CLOSE-WAIT. The number of TCP connections is constrained by the size of the nonpaged pool. When the nonpaged pool is depleted, no new connections can be established.
TCPv6 Connection Failures
Number of TCP connections for which the state is either ESTABLISHED or CLOSE-WAIT. The number of TCP connections is constrained by the size of the nonpaged pool. When the nonpaged pool is depleted, no new connections can be established.

Column
Description
Host
Name of the host where the Exchange server is installed.
Process
Target that is being monitored.
Time
When garbage collection has occurred. When the counter exceeds the threshold, the CPU is cleaning up and is not being used efficiently for load. Adding memory to the server would improve this situation.
.NET Exceptions Per Second
Column
Description
Host
Name of the host where the Exchange server is installed.

Target that is being monitored.
Bytes
Memory allocated in bytes on the GC heaps.
