Exchange workload control and management
An Exchange workload is an Exchange server functional feature, protocol, or service which has been explicitly declared and defined for the purposes of Exchange system resource control and management. Every Exchange workload consumes system resources such as mailbox database operations, CPU, or Active Directory requests to execute user requests or run background work. Instance of Exchange workloads include Outlook on the web, mailbox migration, Exchange ActiveSync, and mailbox assistants.
There are two prime approaches to manage Exchange workloads in Exchange 2016:
- Track and Monitor the health of system resources Managing workloads depending on the health of system resources.
- Manage and Control how resources are consumed or utilized by individual users Controlling how resources are utilized or consumed by individual users was possible in Exchange 2010 (user throttling), and such ability has been expanded for Exchange 2016.
