Send Ports Category

The Nodinite BizTalk Monitoring Agent monitors BizTalk Send Ports from all BizTalk Applications. New (and/or removed) Send Ports are automatically detected and managed by the monitoring agent.

  • Send Ports in BizTalk are listed within Nodinite as resources where the name is the send port name.

  • Nodinite has the same notion of an Application where there is a 1:1 mapping with its BizTalk Application

  • Send Ports are grouped by the Category Send Ports
