At op5 we often run into BizTalk at customer sites as a business critical application. We have done an investigation and come up with a plugin  to monitor BizTalk.

To fully understand this document BizTalk knowledge is necessary.



op5 has developed a plugin that can monitor the following at a BizTalk server:

  • Recieve locations – Verify that they are enabled.
  • Send Ports – Verify that they are in Started state
  • Group Overview – Catch messages in the message queue that are in state Suspended. The different type of messages are:
    • Dehydrated
    • Suspended
    • Queue

The plugin license is GPLv3 so it is free for any one to use and enhance.
