The Nodinite BizTalk Monitoring Agent monitors Receive Locations from all BizTalk Applications. New (and/or removed) Receive Locations are automatically detected and managed by the monitoring agent.
Receive Locations in BizTalk are listed within Nodinite as resources where the name is the same as the Receive Location name.
Nodinite has the same notion of an Application where there is a 1:1 mapping with its BizTalk Application
Receive Locations are grouped by the Category Receive Location
Example of a Monitor View filtered by the 'Receive Location' category
- Enable - Start receiving messages
- Disable - Stop receiving messages
- Tracking - View and manage Tracking Settings
- Details - Displays information about the receive location
- Remote Actions - Support the execution of remote actions
- State Evaluation - Monitors and evaluates the run-time state
The different evaluated state for any Receive Location is provided in the table below:
|Unavailable||Resource not available||If the Receive Locations can't be evaluated either due to network or security-related problems||Review prerequisites|
|Error||Disabled||A Disabled Receive Locations renders as state 'Error'||Enable|
|OK||Enabled and running||Receive Locations is operational and no other problems were detected|| Disable
TIP: The evaluated state may be reconfigured using Expected State functionality that exists on every Resource within Nodinite.
The BizTalk Monitoring Agent has support to filter unwanted resources, see Configuration for details.
