Enterprise Vault by it's nature is a "background" engine, and thus does not have much in the way of real time monitoring tools.
This is a method of watching EV working in real time. It is particularly useful for monitoiring Journaling Mailboxes, which have constant activity, but works just as well during archiving, providing you are watching while archiving is actually taking place.
You may need to manually run an archiving task to trigger activity.
This is premised on the Fact that EV uses the Exchange "Message Class" to identify EV Objects like shotcuts, and pending items, and tie them to the appropriate Exchange Forms to display the correct icons and content.
Ensure that the archiving schedule allows Archiving and / or PST Migration at the time you want to monitor the process in outlook.
