Download and install the utility, then inspect your mail queues, monitor the Exchange server's memory, confirm there is enough disk space and check the CPU utilization. Solar Winds provides this fully-functioning freebie, as part of their commitment to supporting the network management community.

How It Works: On a scheduled basis, Epicenter Server synchronizes a copy of the GAL to a contacts folder in each user's mailbox. During installation, you configure Epicenter Server by telling it which address book to distribute, who should receive the address book, and how often to send updates.
Then Active Sync synchronizes those changes to each user's device. The address book could be your Exchange GAL, an Exchange address list, or an Exchange Public Folder.
