  1. Hi Marco That looks great, could you send me the svg file so I can work on it in Powergadgets Creator. Regards Trevor WorkOnChartFx.zip
  2. Hi MarcoI have had an email response from Powergadgets. They suggest that I can only use Adobe Illustrator to create SVG files for Powergadgets. I don't agree that I should have to spend $600 buying Adobe Illustrator, just to create SVG files that Powergadgets can read. We currently use Microsoft Visio 2007 and the SVG files it generates can be opened by other programs without any problems. I am writing to Powergadgets to ask them to look again at their code, so that it can read SVG files created by programs other than Adobe Illustrator.
  3. Hi Marco This sounds like excellent news. I would prefer a normal traffic light, (Red/Amber/Green). I have been trying to create SVG files using Microsoft Visio 2007, although they seem to create OK, and I can open the SVG file outside of Powergadgets. Powergadgets doesn't like them. I look forward to seeing the traffic light. Many thanks Trevor
  4. Hi Marco Could you provide the powershell script you used to create your traffic light please. Many thanks Trevor
  5. Thanks, I have added a chart showing the top 10 mailboxes by size in our Exchange 2007 environment (I have obscured names on purpose). This Mailbox sizes script was created by Exchange MVP Andy Webb and can be found at http://exchangepedia.com/blog/2007/02/empower-your-powershell-with.html. We use the PowerGadgets monitoring screen with a Transparent Screen Saver, that locks the PC, but continues to show us the PowerGadgets.
  6. Here are the scripts we are using to monitor Exchange 2007, they were created in Powergadgets creator so there are no out- entries I have attached a screen shot (it is rather small due to upload restriction) Chart (Used for monitoring dynamic Exchange SMTP Queues)get-exchangeserver | where-object {$_.IsHubTransportServer -eq $True} | get-queue | select {$_.Identity.ToString()}, MessageCount Radial Guage (Used for Mailbox Store size)$(get-item "\\gimldnexclu01\e$\first storage group\databasefiles\mailboxstore01.edb").Length/1024/1024/1024 Digital Guage (Used for number of maiboxes on Server)get-mailbox | where-object {$_.ServerName -eq "GIMLDNEXCLU01) } | Group ServerName Digital Guage (Used for number of active UM Voice & Fax calls)get-umactivecalls -dialplan gartmore | where-ojbect {$_.CallType -eq "Voice" | select CallType | Groupget-umactivecalls -dialplan gartmore | where-ojbect {$_.CallType -eq "Fax" | select CallType | Group Digital Guage (Uses for CCR Cluster Copy & Replay queue length)get-storagegroupcopystatus -server gimldnexclu01 | select replayqueuelengthget-storagegroupcopystatus -server gimldnexclu01 | select copyqueuelength Digital Guage (Used to display last successful backup of Exchange Store)get-mailboxdatbase -server gimldnexclu01 -status | select LastFullBackup Digital Guage (Used for showing the number of "Stopped Exchange" services$services = test-servicehealth -server gimldnexhub01 | select-object ServicesNotRunning $No_Of_services = test-servicehealth -server gimldnexhub01 | select-object ServicesNotRunning | group-object $count = 0 if ($No_Of_services.Count -gt 1 ) { for ($i = 0; $i -lt [int]$No_Of_services.Count; $i++) { foreach ($element in $services[$i].ServicesNotRunning) { $count += 1 } } $count } else { $count = 0 foreach ($element in $services.ServicesNotRunning) { $count += 1 } $count }
  7. Thanks for such a quick response Ivan. Our senior management always require RAG (Red, Amber, Green) reports on system status, so a real vertical Traffic light type output would be perfect for us. Kind regards Trevor
  8. Hi We use many gadgets to monitor our Exchange 2007 system. eg, Guage for MailStore sizes, Chart for the dynamic SMTP queue lengths, Digital for number of mailboxes on each server, active UM Voice & Fax calls, Copy & Replay queues on the CCR Cluster & date/time of last successful backup. What would be nice is a Traffic Light type guage, that we could set, for example, to Red if more than 1 service stopped, amber for 1 service stopped and Green for all services running.
  9. In Powergadgets Creator, the Desktop Layout Settings under the Edit menu, allows you to set the size of your gadget. If you choose any of the preset sizes (smaller, small, medium, large or larger) the gadget displays correctly. But if you choose Custom size and then specify your width and height, when the gadget runs it does not show on the desktop (although the gadget shows when pressing alt-tab). Regards Trevor
  10. I have downloaded the new version and it is now working properly thanks. Can you email your licenced users when a new version is available, so that we know to download it, or at least have what the latest version number is on your homepage. Thanks for all your help. PowerGadgets Rocks!! TestGraphLocalization.zip
  11. It must be a fault in the licenced version we have, as I have downloaded the Trial version again, and it is displaying everything corrrectly.
  12. At the moment I can't use the out-chart commands for Exchange as the chart never appears (if I run a non Exchange cmdlet with the out-chart it is fine. eg get-process | out-chart) So I have been building my charts with the PowerGadgets Creator, so I can only use the cmdlet without the out-chart bit as the Creator won't run when using the out-chart as it is doing that bit automatically. In PG Creator I have the cmdlet line get-exchangeserver | where-object {$_.IsHubTransportServer -eq $True} | get-queue | select {$_.Identity.ToString()}, MessageCount When you click the test button it produces the result $_.Identity.ToString() MessageCount---------------------- ------------GIMLDNEXH01\2134 0GIMLDNEXH01\2135 0GIMLDNEXH01\Submission 0GIMLDNEXH02\Submission 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1990 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\2000 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\2001 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\Submission 0GIMLDNEXHUB02\Submission 0 But when I click the Finish button the actual chart instead of showing the Identity of the Queues (shown by the test button) it shows 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Regards
  13. Hi Juan Thanks for your reply, but I am still having trouble with this out-chart. I am having to create these charts in PowerGadgets Creator. as when I use out-chart with these exchange cmdlets nothing happens. If I issue a get-process | out-chart it does display the chart correctly. If I use your first option, again it looks ok in the powershell, but I still do not get the queue names in my chart, it continues to display the 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 etc instead of the names. [PS] C:\Shellscripts>get-exchangeserver | where-object {$_.IsHubTransportServer-eq $True} | get-queue | select {$_.Identity.ToString()}, MessageCount $_.Identity.ToString() MessageCount---------------------- ------------GIMLDNEXH01\2092 0GIMLDNEXH01\2093 0GIMLDNEXH01\Submission 0GIMLDNEXH02\Submission 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1899 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1902 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1903 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1904 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\Submission 0GIMLDNEXHUB02\Submission 0 In the creator, I select the Auto-Format option and my queue names display correctly until the auto-refresh runs and then they go back to being numbers. I can't use your second option because the out-chart doesn't display at all. Regards Trevor
  14. I am using PowerGadgets Out-Chart to monitor all the Exchange 2007 Queues in our Environment. My PowerShell script get-exchangeserver | where-object {$_.IsHubTransportServer -eq $True} | get-queue | ft Identity, MessageCount Produces the following output Identity MessageCount-------- ------------GIMLDNEXH01\1466 0GIMLDNEXH01\1467 0GIMLDNEXH01\Submission 0GIMLDNEXH02\Submission 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1520 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\1521 0GIMLDNEXHUB01\Submission 0 But when I pipe this to Out-Chart my X Axis is just numbered as 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 instead of the actual Queue names shown in the Identity column. Is this a known limitation, a bug, or have I done something wrong? Many thanks.
