Last update: 12-07-2017


A variety of performance counters have been included in the 5.0 version of Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP) to help administrators monitor load, diagnose performance bottlenecks and detect problems with shares and print queues. It can be useful to trigger an Email alert when a particular counter falls past some boundary.


Examples of events you can use to trigger an email alert:

Volume is offline (Volume is offline = 1)

Print Queue is offline (Is Queue Online < 1)

Disk IO approaching limit (Disk Idle < 5%)

This PDF describes how to set up an email alert triggered by a performance counter using the "Print Queue is online < 1" example. This is a two step process:

  1. Configure a VBScript and .bat file to send an email
  2. Configure a Perfmon Alert trigger
