Once the tracking data monitor is created and configured, it will execute during the specified time intervals. The data monitoring dashboard will display the status of the tracking data monitor on a specific date at a specific time interval in the calendar chart control. Once the information is plotted in the calendar chart, an email gets triggered to the email id specified while creating the data monitoring alarm. Please note that SMTP needs to be configured in order to be able to receive email notifications from BizTalk360. In addition to SMTP settings, make sure the monitoring service responsible to send alerts is running.
The email alert will contain the Tracking Data Monitor Execution Results information that will provide the status of the data monitor. You will receive the data monitor alert emails only if you had turned on the 'Use this alarm for Data Monitor Alerts' option while creating the data monitoring alarm. Only by selecting this, you will receive the Failure emails to the configured email address. Alternatively, if you had turned on the 'Notify on Success as well' option, you will receive the success alert emails as well to your mailbox. The following screenshots depicts a success, warning, and a failure email notification received for a configured tracking data monitor.
The email notification will provide the detailed status of the data monitor - the status of execution, the warning & error count as defined in the data monitor and the actual count of tracked service instances during the period when the data monitor executed.
