As mentioned in my previous post, I inform you that a new BizTalk Health application named "BizTalk Health Monitor" is now available in BizTalk 2013 R2
After releasing MBV as a standalone tool for several years, the MBV project team decided indeed to integrate it more closely with the BizTalk Administration Console to provide BizTalk administrators a quick and complete dashboard of a BizTalk group which will help them monitor the health of their BizTalk platform.
A new BizTalk snap-in, named “BizTalk Health Monitor” (aka “BHM”), has so been created to help you easily monitor the health of your BizTalk environment.
BHM is based on the same engine as MBV and can be added to the existing BizTalk Administration Console or can be run individually in its own MMC window.
The first version of BHM is included in BizTalk 2013 R2 in the “Support tools” folder but updates will be released periodically with new features (and fixes if needed). The first update is almost ready and should be available soon.
Note that BHM will work also with previous versions of BizTalk targeting any versions of BizTalk groups since BizTalk 2004 😉
A dedicated blog was specifically created by the BHM team to provide all details about this new BizTalk health check application, how to install it in its own MMC or in the existing BizTalk console (prefered method) and how to use it, so instead to write here a long post about it, I let you read the posts below about BHM.
Feel free to let your comments on the BHM blog.
