BizTalk360 allows users to enable the performance data collection for the various server types, say BizTalk, SQL, IIS, Windows, where BizTalk360 analytics service will start collecting performance data for all the counters of the selected type. User can optimise the performance data collection by using “Manage Metrics ” option , which allows user to select the required performance metrics for each server .So that the analytics service will start collecting data for only the selected performance metrics .

In this section, we will take a detailed look at:

  1. How to enable the performance data collection at the environment level.
  2. How to optimise the performance data collection using “Manage Metrics” option at server level .

Enable Performance Data Collection at Environment level

The performance data collection can be enabled for an environment by navigating to (Settings->Analytics Configuration->Manage Analytics ->Manage Metrics) .

Analytics Configuration

Select the environment and enable the performance data collection toggle . Once its enabled BizTalk360 analytics service will start collecting performance data for all the servers under the selected environment .

Manage Performance Data Collection

To narrow down the data collection at server level, user can optimise the performance data collection using the “Manage Metrics” option for each servers under an environment . With this Manage Metrics option user can choose the required performance metrics for each server , So that BizTalk360 analytics will start collecting data only for that metrics .

For an instance if you have multi server setup - BizTalk Server ,SQL Server,IIS configured in different machines . You may expect different performance metrics from different server . And you many not wanted to have SQL related performance metrics data in the BizTalk server machine . By using “Manage Metrics” option you can define the what metrics is needed for each and every server , by this way analytics service will start collecting data only for that selected metrics . Which avoids the DB growth and improves the performance .

Initially all the counters will be selected when the performance data collection is enabled .The the counter will be updated for selection only after a next polling cycle (15 mins later )
