Data Monitoring (Message Box, Tracking, Ports)
Message Box Data MonitoringHelps you to watch out for a condition that happens with live data in BizTalk Message box. Example: Suspended Instances for Application “PO Processing” reaches 500 with an error code of “0x23543” and instance status is “Suspended (Non-resumable)”.
Tracking Data MonitoringHelps you to monitor certain volume of business transaction based on tracked context properties. Example: If “PO Number” contains “Contoso” and “Is Processed flag is false”.
Ports MonitoringHelps you to configure transaction volume at Receive Ports and Send ports level. Example: Expecting 300 messages per hour from SAP.
Data Monitoring (ESB, BAM, Event Log)
ESB Exception Data MonitoringIf you are using ESB toolkit exception management framework, you may be interested to get alerted when certain conditions are triggered. Example: A particular “Shipping Application” is receiving too many exceptions. BizTalk360 “ESB data monitoring” will help you to monitor for these conditions and alert you.
BAM MonitoringIf your organisation is using BAM for capturing business critical data like KPI metrics, you can use BAM data monitoring to look out for some key events and alert relevant people.
Event LogIf your organisation is monitoring the event logs from (BizTalk, SQL server) you may be interested to trigger alerts for certain events that occur in BizTalk and SQL servers. For e.g., you can set up an alarm to “Check the BizTalk server monitoring service every 30 minutes on all days in a week and warn when the event id 5410 (BizTalk Server event) occurs more than 100 times and throw an error when the same event id occurs more than 200 times “.
Queue Monitoring (MSMQ)
BizTalk360 comes with inbuilt capabilities to monitor MSMQ that helps you to ensure the performance of your messaging service. This includes real time monitoring of queue size, active messages, dead letters, and journal messages in the queue. You can also monitor all your local and remote queues and set different threshold conditions to get alerted.
Folder Monitoring (File, FTP, FTPS)
File Location MonitoringIt’s very common in the integration world to drop a file in a folder location such as a purchase order, batch file, EDI transactions etc and the integration kicks in. One of the common challenges in such integration occurs when the integration is broken and the files start to pile up in the pickup folder. That’s exactly the problem we are addressing using the new File Monitoring Capability in BizTalk360.
FTP/FTPS LocationLike file monitoring, we have now brought the capability to monitor the health of FTP/FTPS based on the File count within BizTalk360.
In addition to the standard notification channels like email, SMS, and writing to event viewers, BizTalk360 comes with few enterprise notification channels like Slack, ServiceNow, Microsoft Teams and HP Operations Manager. It also provides a rich SDK and seamless user interface for building custom notification channels. For example: Executing a PowerShell or calling a REST Web Hooks, etc., can be easily achieved.
Data Monitoring (EDI, Azure Logic Apps)
EDIIf you are processing EDI transactions using BizTalk server, then you’ll be interested in watching out for key functional messages and acknowledgements like 810, 820 997, etc. You can easily set up BizTalk360 to monitor for those messages and alert relevant people.
Azure Loigc AppsData monitoring in BizTalk360 allows you to monitor and trigger alerts based on historical events. Some of the common scenarios of data monitoring include “No Event Alerting”. Eg: If you are expected to process 5 purchase orders from a FTP location every hour and you haven’t received the expected volume then BizTalk360 can alert you. We are taking the exact same concept to Azure Logic Apps to alert you based on historical transactions within a time window. You have the option to monitor and alert on 25+ metrics available in Azure Logic Apps such as Total Billable Executions, Triggers Completed, Runs Cancelled etc.
Queue Monitoring (IBM MQ)
You can monitor the health of IBM MQ and its associated parameter like Current Queue Depth, Backout queue Depth, Current Queue usage and Backout Queue Usage.
Folder Monitoring (SFTP)
SFTP MonitoringSFTP based integrations are key in most enterprise integration scenarios. BizTalk Server comes with three different adapters FTP, FTPS and SFTP scenarios. Like normal FTP monitoring, with BizTalk360, you can monitor SFTP locations for data pile up.
Host Throttling feature includs the publish and delivery throttle conditions for different counters like Rate Throttling, Process Throttling, System Throttling, Database Size, User override, Thread count and Database Session. With this feature, you will be able to enable the throttling conditions at the Host level. Monitoring will happen for all host instances under the configured Host. When any one of the parameters violates the threshold condition, then the alert service will notify you accordingly.
Azure Monitoring (Logic Apps, API Apps, ServiceBus Queues)
Monitor the real-time health status of your Azure Logic Apps and API Apps. Moreover, you can configure the BizTalk360 monitoring service to automatically correct the state of the Logic app when there is a threshold violation.
BizTalk Admin Web Console
Out of the box, there is no web based access to your BizTalk environments. The only management tool that ships with BizTalk Server is the standard BizTalk admin console, which is a MMC based snap in. BizTalk360 provides complete web access to your BizTalk environment with easy to use and a beautiful modern web interface with dashboards, productivity and health check tools.
User Access Security, Governance
The security mechanism in the standard BizTalk admin console is very poor. It relies on two NT groups called “BizTalk Administrator” and “BizTalk Operator” group. The rules for the “BizTalk Operators” group is hard coded without any flexibility. This forces every support person to have BizTalk administrator rights. BizTalk360 solves this challenge by providing a robust, fully customizable security mechanism. For example, you can seamlessly provide read-only access to people, restrict users to only certain applications, protect people from accessing confidential message content etc.
Tracking Manager (Read Only)
You track information at various places – pipelines, orchestrations, schemas, global tracking etc. Tracking manager from BizTalk360 helps to visualize all these data in a single page at application level, making you super productive.
In a complex environment setup (with multiple BizTalk Servers and SQL Servers), it is very important for the BizTalk Administrator to know the topology of their environment. With BizTalk360, say goodbye to Visio or MS Word to create the infrastructure topology diagrams. BizTalk360 will create these diagrams automatically for you, depending on the current environment configuration at the point of time.
ESB Exception Portal
It’s full blown replacement to the sample ESB portal that ships with ESB Toolkit. You’ll be able to manage exceptions, edit and resubmit messages, re-submit bulk messages and you can also set monitoring for exceptions conditions.
BizTalk360 comes with inbuilt Business Activity Monitoring portal that allows administrators and support people to access and download related documents and activities and view data stored in BAM database seamlessly. You can also have notification alerts for set thresholds values.
Advanced Event Viewer
The standard event viewer that ships with Windows is not the appropriate tool for diagnosing BizTalk problems. In a multi server BizTalk environment, you’ll need access to event viewers across all the servers. BizTalk360 addresses this challenge by providing a central web access to all the events in the BizTalk environment. You can also attach knowledge base articles to known problems.
Team Knowledge Base
In a middleware platform like BizTalk, there will always be some operational problems. Ex: a partner sending files with wrong datetime format. BizTalk360 allows you to create and attach KB articles for various things like event viewer id’s, suspended service instances, ESB exceptions and throttling condition. It will also intelligently match those KB articles with the exceptions during day-to-day operations, thereby making your team super productive.
Secure SQL Queries
Normally, it’s not a good idea to allow support people to have full access to SQL server and system databases like BizTalk Message Box, Tracking etc. BizTalk360 addresses this challenge by providing a platform to store and execute secure queries. A DBA can write valid/efficient SQL queries and provide access to support team.
Microsoft has made some major changes to Message Box Viewer(MBV) and rebranded it as BizTalk Health Monitor(BHM) with a few additional functionalities and deprecated MBV. In Gold tier license BizTalk360 out of the box comes with support for BHM Integration.
Tracking Manager functionality has been improved to enable/disable tracking on the artifacts like Receive Ports, Send Ports, Orchestrations, Schemas, Pipelines, and Policies of the BizTalk Application directly from the BizTalk360 UI.
Business Rules Composer
The standard BRE composer that ships with BizTalk Server is designed for IT people, whereas the one we designed and shipped with BizTalk360 is built for Business users. They can create/edit rules within a web based BRE composer and deploy it directly into production systems without IT help. It comes with full security model and auditing capabilities.
Provides web based access to Parties, Agreements and various EDI status reports.
Real-time Activity Feed
This is like real time information of what operational activities are going on in your BizTalk environment. You can understand things like who stopped host instances, terminated services instances, unenlisted orchestrations etc.
Azure Services Operation (Logic Apps, Integration Account)
Logic Apps OperationPerform operational actions on Logic Apps such as Enable, Disable, Run Trigger and Delete. In addition to this, you can perform bulk actions on the Logic Apps. Trigger history and Run history details are available in both graphical and grid view.
Integration AccountBizTalk360 supports Hybrid Integration (an approach that offers the best path to the cloud and a way to optimise your existing resources) and to strengthen the Hybrid features in BizTalk360 we have introduced an Integration Account feature under the Operations section. This feature will help you to view different artifacts like Schemas, Maps, Certificates, Partners and Agreements from Integration account in configured Azure subscriptions.
BizTalk Server Analytics
For pretty much every BizTalk customer, their BizTalk environment is a big black box. They won’t have any visibility of what’s going on in the environment like message volumes, failure rate at ports, CPU/Memory utilization on BizTalk/SQL servers, CPU/Memory utilization of BizTalk processes like Host Instances, Rules Engine, SSO, Base EDI service etc. BizTalk360 extracts lot of information from 100’s of performance counters and represent them in beautiful dashboards. Users can fully customize the dashboards, create multiple ones, have multiple metrics in single chart for comparison etc. Making really a must have dashboard to understand your BizTalk environment.
BizTalk Server Reporting
BizTalk Reports feature offers out of the box capabilities that provide the option for you to create schedules and generate PDF documents of critical performance metrics at specific time periods, depending on the requirement. The report will contain the graphical display of the key performance metrics of the (BizTalk, SQL, IIS servers), Messaging performance, Message transmission failure rate and Event log metrics.
In your BizTalk environment, you’ll have various transaction patterns. Ex: Salesforce connected to SAP, some batch processing, debatching scenarios, scatter/gather patterns etc. BizTalk360 analyses your tracking database and identifies all the various transaction patterns and represents them in a graphical way. On top of that, it overlays some interesting information like message count, execution time, and so on, thereby making it an invaluable information for your support people.
Understanding throttling conditions in BizTalk requires substantial knowledge of BizTalk underlying architecture and various performance counters. It’s generally a time consuming process to set up counters, collect data over a period and finally analysing it. BizTalk360 address this challenge by providing an easy to access web interface with visual graphs that abstracts all the complexity. It helps organisation to understand the peak capacity, bottlenecks etc., in their BizTalk environment.
New Relic Integration
New Relic is widely used by companies as an enterprise wide monitoring solution. It is easy to analyse the data and get insights in real-time. If you are already using New Relic, you can view the performance metrics of the BizTalk server environment across multiple dashboards within New Relic.
