In this section, we will see how to set up monitoring on the disks. Your BizTalk Servers may be utilizing your local disks for variety of reasons and it’s generally a good practice to monitor the disks, so that they don't run out of disk space. You can set up monitoring of the disks in the BizTalk and SQL Server(s) and allow the alarm to generate alerts when a particular threshold value is exceeded. For instance, your disk size is 100GB and you want to be notified when the disk size goes below 50GB, you can set up a warning and an alert to be aware of the status of the disks. In addition, you can check the status of the disks without having to actually see the monitoring section by seeing the visual cue next to the component names (in Green/Red color).
- Log in to the BizTalk360 application
- Click 'Monitoring' in the navigation panel
- Click the expand button against 'Manage Mapping' tab and depending on your requirement, select 'BizTalk Servers' or 'SQL Servers'
- Select the BizTalk or SQL Server for which you want to set up the monitoring on disk space
- Select the Alarm name (see Creating an alarm) from the drop down for which you would like to associate the alerts
- Click Enable Monitoring button to set up monitoring for the disks. You can customize your alert to trigger a warning when the disk available space goes below certain percentage (say 10% or 20%)
- Click Save to save the disk monitoring information
- At any point, to stop monitoring, click Disable Monitoring button
The BizTalk Server BT360ESB needs to be monitored for available Disk space. Warnings should be received in case available Disk space on C: goes below 40% and available Disk space on D: goes below 30%. Errors should be received in case available Disk space on C: goes below 20% and available Disk space on D: goes below 15%.
