Anyone out there who could recommend the best way for Exchange 2003 to perform much faster and easily restore a calendar post or a mail being used by the user? Currently, our Exchange 2003, which is utilizing ntbackup for fullbackup, has about a hundred users and 50 GB of data. I’m not yet satisfied with its performance and I think it still needs an improvement. I’m thinking using Exmerge or 3rd-part application in order to achieve our desired performance, but I don’t know which one is better.
Speed up Exchange 2003 Performance
You know performance optimizer from exchange 5.5? At the end of every Exchange installation you were prompted to run the optimizer that would configure some settings, based on the hardware, workload and specific use, contributing to the overall stability and performance of the server.
Some Tasks that you can do to improve performance, Such as buying new processors (and use hyper-threading), adding more memory, and migrating to a faster storage system.
1 Remove obsolete Exchange 2000 tuning parameters
2 Optimize Exchange memory utilization.
3 Implement a effective storage design
4 Have fast access to AD
5 Improve backup performance
6 Install and use Exchange best practices analyzer (ExBPA) tool
7 Use outlook 2003
8 Ensure that online maintenance runs
9 use antivirus and antispam.
