How to Configure Tracking for a Send Port
This topic describes how to use the BizTalk Server Administration console to configure tracking for a send port, such as options to view message bodies and promoted properties. This helps you monitor the health of your BizTalk implementation and identify any bottlenecks. The tracking settings that you configure apply to all of the instances of the send port.
For more information about the message event and service instance tracking features of BizTalk Server, see Viewing Tracked Message and Instance Data
To perform the procedure in this topic, you must be logged on with an account that is a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group. For more detailed information about permissions, see Permissions Required for Deploying and Managing a BizTalk Application.
Click Start, click Programs, click Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010, and then click BizTalk Server Administration.
In the console tree, expand the BizTalk group and the BizTalk application for which you want to configure tracking for a send port.
Click Send Ports, right-click the send port, click Properties, and then click Tracking.
Note One send port can be associated with only one send pipeline. If message body tracking is disabled on the send pipeline, nothing can be tracked on the send port as well. In such a scenario, you can disable the "Tracking" options on that send port.
