Enterprise Vault - Determine usage by users?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dear all,

Being new to EV, I'm wondering whether its possible for someone to tell me whether users are actually using EV? Is it possible to see utilisation of users recalling mail or something similar? We're going through a huge refresh and trying to reduce footprint of data we back up. We use EV for Exchange under EV 9.0.2

Thanks for your thoughts,

If you have auditing enabled and are auditing view items you can.  If you don't have auditing enabled then you are pretty much going to be out of luck.  You could parse the IIS logs for viewmessage.asp, but depending on how many IIS logs you keep you might not have a lot of data to go by.

If you do have auditing take a look at AuditViewer.

Thanks Tony!

I waded into the Admin Guide earlier and found auditing, however this is not enabled.

Are there any disadvantages of setting up auditing in the short term to measure a month or so of data?

Thanks for your help.

Not really, you just want to be watch the Audit db in SQL to make sure it doesn't grow too large.

You could also look into replicating your Enterprise Vault environment, and thus take EV out of your Backup completely.

Have a look here:
