RE: Soka|Defag|Frequency

Hi

 

I have been observing this mail thread from last three days. I would like to
clear few points on Offline defrag. 

 

On daily basis exchange perform online defrag which manage the database to
some extent but cannot release free whilte space. In order to release that
white space you need to perform offline defragment. Now the question arises
is when to do it. Well the best way to judge is to check for event id 1221
in the Exchange server application log which will give clear picture of
white space in both private and public database. Based on that value you can
do a planning of offline defragment. 

 

Hope this would clarify.

 

Regards

Ripon

Necessary?  Absolutely not.

What if one archives a couple of gig of email. Is it necessary to do an
off-line defrag?

 

Thanks!

That only applies to Standard Edition.

 

An Exchange administrator should be aware of that limit, and should plan for
it.

 

If your organization needs more than 16 GB of mailbox storage - then you
should buy it. Not defrag the database.

If you DON'T do an offline defrag (assuming you are using Exchange Standard,
not Enterprise) Exchange will crash when it gets beyond 16GB limit.  I know
because mine crashed.  We purchased PerfectDisk 7 for Exchange, which
enables scheduling of offline defrags.
