Host Instance Monitoring
BizTalk Host Instances can be monitored by setting the Expected State. If the expected state doesn’t match with the current state of the host instance, then a notification alert will get triggered. This feature is now extended to support “AtleastOneActive” state for Clustered and Non-Cluster Host Instances. Also, Auto Correct can be enabled for host instances, which will automatically try to bring the host instance back to the expected state.
BizTalk Group Dashboard
In the BizTalk360 monitoring dashboard it was not possible to see the status of all the mapped artifacts in a consolidated view. Every time the alarm name needs to be chosen to see the status of the mapped artifacts. To overcome this challenge, we have introduced the BizTalk Group Dashboard which gives a consolidated view of the status of all the artifacts mapped to all the alarms in an environment, along with the warning and error details.
To be able to view the BizTalk Server performance metrics in your Dynatrace environment, you can integrate BizTalk360 Analytics data with Dynatrace. This does not need any agent to be installed in the BizTalk Servers to collect data and it does not require any configuration changes at the server level.
Custom SQL Query Report
In BizTalk Reporting, we have introduced an additive widget called Custom SQL Query widget, through which SQL queries can be mapped to get the top 100 query result as a report in your email box, based on the configured schedule.
Performance Data Collection Optimisation
To optimize the performance data collection, from this version on, we are providing an option to the user to manage the performance metrics, through which the user can select the required performance metrics for each server. This way, BizTalk360 will collect data only for the selected metrics.
In the previous version, we have introduced Auditing for BizTalk360 Activities. This feature helps the BizTalk360 administrators to find out “Who did what” in the environment over a period of time. All the activities performed by the users in the “Manage Alarm, Artifacts Mapping and Secure SQL query” sections will be logged. Now, we have extended this for the Licensing and User access policy sections.
Analytics – Messaging Flow Patterns
From this version on, Messaging Flow Patterns can be determined from the BizTalk Management database. Users can switch the Messaging Flow determination technique in the Message Patterns configuration. The Dynamic Pattern option is used to determine the Message Patterns from the tracking database (earlier versions).
