In this section, we will show how to set up monitoring the disks in your BizTalk servers.

Disk Monitoring of BizTalk Servers

Your BizTalk may be utilizing its local disks for a variety of reasons. To prevent running out of disk space, it is generally a good practice to monitor those disks. You can set up disk monitoring of the BizTalk server(s) and allow alarms to generate alerts when a particular threshold value has been exceeded.

For instance, your disk size is 100GB and you want to be notified when the disk size goes below 50GB. In such scenarios, 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).

At the moment, you can only enable/disable disk monitoring and cannot enable/disable at the individual disk level.

Setting up Disk monitoring

  1. Log in to the BizTalk360 application
  2. Click 'Monitoring' in the navigation panel
  3. Click the expand button against the 'Manage Mapping' tab and select 'BizTalk Servers
  4. Select the BizTalk server from the drop-down for which you want to set up disk space monitoring
  5. Select the Alarm name (see Manage Alarms) from the drop-down for which you would like to associate the alerts
  6. Click the 'Enable Monitoring' button to set up monitoring for the disks. You can customize your alert to trigger a notification when the available disk space goes below a certain percentage (say 10% or 20%)
  7. Click 'Save' to save the disk monitoring information
  8. At any point, to stop monitoring, click the 'Disable Monitoring' button

In the above screenshot is shown that the BizTalk server BT360DOC needs to be monitored for available disk space. 

  • A Warning notification should be received in case available Disk space on C: goes below 30% and available Disk space on D: goes below 10%
  • An Error notification should be received in case available Disk space on C: goes below 40% and available Disk space on D: goes below 10%
