Hi all,

What will be the sizing implications of having journaling turned on in Exchange server 2010?

Any inputs regarding this will be appreciated.

It completely depends on your mail flow and how you enable journaling. Are you planning on using it only for certain users, or entire databases?Microsoft Premier Field Engineer, Exchange

Are you journaling for an archive solution. I have found that I want to account for double the amount of email flow from a processor perspective. and I am a little more concerned about my Transport queue location and drive type that it is on. We have seen some poor design decisions cause some performance impact.Mitch Roberson |MCITP:Enterprise Server Admin, Messaging 2007, 2010 |MCTS:OCS with Voice Achievement |MCT |MCSE 2000\2003 |MCSE Messaging 2000\2003
