It's one of the common practice in supporting a BizTalk environment for support people to maintain daily/weekly routine to take a look at the overall health status of BizTalk environment(s). BizTalk360 helps to automate that process by creating a daily health check/status alarm at set timing (ex: Mon-Fri, 9 AM).  When you are creating an alarm, on the "Health Monitoring Alert" page, you can set up the alarms to monitor the health of the environment on a periodic basis. You can configure the days/times as per your convenience/requirement.

Setting Up Daily Health Check/Status Monitoring

  1. Log in to the BizTalk360 application 
  2. Click 'Monitoring' in the navigation panel on the left side of the screen 
  3. Select 'Manage Alarms
  4. Click 'New Alarm'. Enter a descriptive name for the Alarm, Email id (you can enter multiple email ids as comma separated values), and Alarm Description 
  5. User can enter multiple email ids as comma separated values to receive separate alerts to all email id's or enter semicolon separated email ids to receive single alert (email count) to all email id's in one go.
  6. Click Next to enter the Threshold Alert page 
  7. Turn off the 'Alert on threshold violation' option
  8. Click Next to enter the Health Monitoring Alert page
  9. On this page you have option to choose the days and times you want to receive periodic update about the health of your environment
  10. You can either click OK or Click Next to move to the last screen to add some Advanced Settings like SMS configuration, HPOM configuration etc.
    From v8.0, we have added the capability for BizTalk360 to be able to trigger notifications to custom external notification channels
  11. The alarm will be created and you will be redirected to the Manage Alarms page. The Manage Alarms page will list the alarms that have been created for the environment

The Create Alarm screen allows you to configure both threshold as well as health check/status monitoring and notification within a single alarm. You have the option to either configure them separately on it's own alarms or you can configure all both of them together in single alarm.

Once the alarm is configured, then you can associate various sections like receive locations status, send ports status, disk, CPU, memory status etc., all to the alarm. It will be checked periodically and you'll receive an email as shown below.
