This article describes how File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) limits the number of e-mail messages or events that each file screen can send in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2.
You can use File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) in Windows Server 2003 R2 to create file screens. File screens can control the file types that users can save within a specified path. Additionally, you can configure FSRM to send an e-mail or to log an event in the Application log when users try to save file types that are specified in the active or in the passive screens.
Performance reduction may occur because of excessive e-mail notifications or because of event notifications. FSRM limits the number of the notifications that FSRM can send based on the following principals:
FSRM sends only one e-mail message within a notification interval for each file screen.
FSRM logs only one event within a notification interval for each file screen.
The default notification interval is 60 minutes.
FSRM resets the notification interval when you perform any of the following actions:
You restart the FSRM service.
You restart the server that hosts the FSRM service.
You open and close the properties for the file screen.
If multiple file groups are screened, only the first file type in any of the groups will trigger notifications.
The first time any user tries to save files that are blocked by a file screen, an e-mail notification or an event notification is triggered. Any actions to save files that are blocked by the same file screen will not trigger more notifications until the interval expires or until the interval is reset.
When administrators receive e-mail notifications or event notifications, the administrators can generate a storage report to identify the owners and the file types that triggered the notifications.For more information about how to set the notification interval, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Technical support for x64-based versions of Microsoft Windows
If your hardware came with a Microsoft Windows x64 edition already installed, your hardware manufacturer provides technical support and assistance for the Windows x64 edition. In this case, your hardware manufacturer provides support because a Windows x64 edition was included with your hardware. Your hardware manufacturer might have customized the Windows x64 edition installation by using unique components. Unique components might include specific device drivers or might include optional settings to maximize the performance of the hardware. Microsoft will provide reasonable-effort assistance if you need technical help with a Windows x64 edition. However, you might have to contact your manufacturer directly. Your manufacturer is best qualified to support the software that your manufacturer installed on the hardware.
