Monitoring Disk Space Usage
As part of the monitoring process for operational readiness of BizTalk Server, monitor the disk space usage as follows:
Determine the disk space required.
When using File or MSMQ send / receive locations, ensure that there is ample disk space available to accommodate outages of BizTalk Server or of the receiving systems. For example, if BizTalk Server is writing files to a share on a SAN and the receiving system is down for two days, determine whether there is enough disk space to allow the files to queue up.
Clean up the BizTalk Server backup files directory periodically.
You can perform this cleanup using a script called from a SQL Server Agent job.
Clean up the BizTalk Tracking database archive files directory periodically.
Ensure that there is sufficient disk space available to accommodate larger BizTalk Server database (.mdf) and transaction log (.ldf) files during times of peak data flow.
