MLA Counter

The MindLink Server exposes a custom suite of Windows performance counters that can be used to monitor the usage and health of the system.

The performance counter suite can be used to indicate general usage statistics as well as to detect outages or other problems, via the number and rate of errors thrown.

Saving the management tool automatically adds the service account to the local Performacne Logs Users group.

Performance Counter Users

In addition, the MindLink server is a .NET service and hence exposes the standard suite of .NET performance counters. It is recommended to monitor at least the standard Windows memory usage and CPU performance counters, as well as the MindLink performance counters that report error rates, as a general indication of service health.

The Connector service exposes several performance counters. The new category in which they are found is called 'CollaborationFoundation'. The performance counters and how they are updated are as follows:

Anywhere & MobileChat:

  • ActiveSessions: The active user sessions connected into webchat/mobilechat.

  • Active Subscriptions: The number of current presence subscriptions.

  • Total Subscriptions: - The total number of subscriptions made so far.

  • Total User Information Requests Calls: - The number of user information lookups made so far.
