Doing some research I found that Windows 7 and Vista both have what’s called “slow link mode”. The behavior is that if the latency of the network connection exceeds 80 milliseconds (ms), the system will transition the files to “offline mode”.

Note – The “Configure Slow link speed” value is for Windows XP Professional.

ETW Framework Tutorial This tutorial provides conceptual overviews of the underlying Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) framework upon which message/event capturing is based in Message Analyzer. As implemented in the Windows 7 and later operating systems, ETW is a high-speed tracing facility that uses kernel buffering and logging to provide a tracing mechanism for events that are raised by both user-mode applications and kernel-mode device drivers. These events are traced and logged via an ETW Session. The topics that follow provide overviews of the ETW framework and the architecture in which its components exist. To enable a software component to report critical errors and other important events, it can be instrumented for ETW.

Although I haven’t deployed this at the production level yet but my initial experience with Exchange 2016 is positive comparatively with previously versions of Exchange. Traditionally we had to wait for at least service pack 1 to be out before we even think about deploying Exchange at the production level and this is purely due to our real world experiences and how buggy Exchange has been. This perception is about to change as Exchange 2016 RTM is exactly the same Exchange as Exchange online - part of the office 365 already in production.
