Minotaur - BizTalk Monitoring for the Enterprise
Minotaur is a complete end to end solution for monitoring BizTalk Server Enterprise solutions. Minotaur is not just any BizTalk Monitoring Tool; it is a vital contributor to ensuring reliable BizTalk solutions from an operational point of view. Minotaur will monitor your entire BizTalk environment proactively and reactively, thereby preventing many errors before they happen and also allowing administrators and operators to react quickly when errors do in fact occur.
At Inobits Inc, we believe that companies should have better leverage and greater return from their choice of technology solutions. Companies have invested large sums of money and a lot of time in acquiring or building integration solutions, a process that is quite often short-circuited by not investing in the operational side once the solutions are live. BizTalk Server as a technology platform and framework is no exception to this.
There are a few good off the shelf products that do BizTalk Server monitoring; with many of them focusing on application specific monitoring and not so much on the environment surrounding the BizTalk Server deployment and the applications running in the environment. This is where Minotaur is different; Minotaur will monitor your BizTalk applications, the applications and services environments surrounding your BizTalk applications and also the environment on which your applications run.
Save time and money
Are you still performing day-to-day BizTalk operational tasks manually? Is continuously checking for suspended messages, making sure if your send ports, receive locations and orchestrations are still running, checking for issues with the BizTalk databases, checking free disk space on all your servers, checking if your ancillary and supporting services are running, scouring the event logs on a daily basis for errors, ensuring the BizTalk SQL agent jobs are running (the list goes on and on) eating up all your valuable time? Valuable time that could have been utilized more effectively? Have Minotaur perform these mundane day-to-day operational monitoring tasks for you.
If you're hearing about outages in your integration layer or about delays in message delivery from your users and not your operational personnel, then Minotaur is the product for you.
