Performance Tools

This topic provides information on tools you can use to evaluate the performance of a BizTalk Server solution. The tools described in this topic have different purposes; some are designed to evaluate end-to-end performance while others focus on evaluating performance of a particular aspect of a BizTalk Server solution.

BizUnit is a framework designed for automated testing of BizTalk solutions. BizUnit is an excellent tool for testing end-to-end BizTalk Server scenarios. Performing automated testing of BizTalk solutions with BizUnit is the primary focus of the Automating Testing section of this guide. For more information about BizUnit 3.0, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=85168.

BizUnit Designer is a GUI that allows for rapid creation of BizUnit test cases that can be used for unit testing or system testing distributed applications. The tool is available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=117917.

The PAL tool is used to generate an HTML-based report that graphically charts important performance counters and generates alerts when thresholds for these counters are exceeded. PAL is an excellent tool for identifying bottlenecks in a BizTalk Server solution to facilitate the appropriate allocation of resources when optimizing the performance of the solution.

For more information about the Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) tool, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=98098.

The SQLIO tool was developed by Microsoft to evaluate the I/O capacity of a given configuration. As the name of the tool implies, SQLIO is a valuable tool for measuring the impact of file system I/O on SQL Server performance. SQLIO can be downloaded from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=115176.

BizTalk LoadGen 2007 is a load generation tool used to run performance and stress tests against BizTalk Server.

For more information about the Microsoft BizTalk LoadGen 2007 tool, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=59841.

Available with Visual Studio 2005 as the "Performance Tools" feature in Visual Studio Team Suite. For more information about the testing tools that are integrated into Visual Studio 2005 Team System, see "Visual Studio 2005 Team System: Enabling Better Software Through Better Testing" at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=102208.

Windows Server 2003 Performance Advisor is a simple but robust tool that can help you diagnose the root causes of performance problems in a Windows Server 2003 deployment. Server Performance Advisor collects performance data and generates comprehensive diagnostic reports that give you the data to help you analyze problems and develop corrective actions. The tool is available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=117918.

The BizTalk Server Orchestration Profiler is used to view orchestration tracking data for a specified period of time and is useful for determining where performance bottlenecks exist in orchestrations.

For more information about the BizTalk Server 2006 Orchestration Profiler, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=102209.
