I have an Exchange 5.5 server running on an NT4 SP6a OS and want to set up some best practices for monitoring it.

I have been looking at packet monitoring and dramatic increase in container size, but I need to setup guidelines/procedures for what should be monitored in terms of CPU utilization, RAM utilization, and Exchange-specific variables? What are some are the most important red flags to look for?

I have done several searches on microsoft.com, but have been unable to find the reference material that I need.

Thank you for your help-
