Tracking is a key feature in any middleware platform. BizTalk server has the capability to track the information flowing through the system. You can track information like Message Content, Message Context, Orchestration Events like begin datetime, end datetime etc. All this information can be configured at the Receive ports, Send Ports, Orchestrations, Schemas, Pipelines, and Policies of the BizTalk Application. The tracked data is stored in the Tracking database (BizTalkDTADb). Tracking can be configured at different levels in the system - artifact level and/or global environment level. 

The challenge with the current tracking mechanism in BizTalk server is that it is not centralized. The users need to configure tracking at multiple places in the administration console and switch between multiple views to get hold of the tracking information. BizTalk360 solves this problem and improves the productivity by providing a single page view of all the tracking configuration information at the application level. All the user needs to do is to select the application from the drop down, and BizTalk360 will display the tracking information for the artifacts of that application.

Tracking comes with a performance cost; therefore it is very important to choose the best tracking strategy.
