The Microsoft Exchange Base Monitor is a new monitor in SiteScope 11.24 that enables you to monitor the statistics of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and 2013. This application monitoring provides improved performance over the existing Microsoft Exchange Monitor, and includes an extended set of performance metrics (over 70 counters).
A faster monitor run is achieved by maintaining the connection to the Exchange Server using a PowerShell pool that reuses the PowerShell process that was created on the first monitor run.
Statistics for this monitor are gathered through “Exchange Management Shell”, a command-line interface (built on Microsoft Windows PowerShell technology) that is used for managing and testing Microsoft Exchange servers and objects.
The Microsoft Exchange Base monitor runs command-lets (cmdlets) to provide health information. You can see cmdlet results in the Dashboard tab for the current monitor.
