5. Tracking Manager
Tracking manager allows user to view all the artifacts tracking setting for an application in one single view, it helps to visualize the tracking configuration. Tracking got certain level of performance impact, so it’s important to turn off unnecessary ones
6. Advanced Event Viewer Enhancements
We enhanced the advanced event viewer for security and performance reasons (to address this issue). Now the super user can configure the logs and sources required to be collected, rather than collecting the complete list. This improves performance and also adds security benefit by not showing everything in the server to support people.
7. Performance/Stability/MSI improvements
We worked hard on improving the performance of BizTalk360, we introduced aspect oriented programming techniques to cache information that doesn’t change frequently (ex: topology, database settings, server settings, license verification, user access policies etc.). We also improved the stability of BizTalk360, we addressed all the customer related bugs in this release. We also made huge improvements to the MSI package. The MSI package now understands database versioning and supports upgrades from previous versions (3.1 beta onwards).
We hope you enjoy using all these features and provide better support/monitoring capabilities to your own organisation or customers. If you got any queries please feel free to contact us via http://www.biztalk360.com/content/contact
