Alarm mapping in monitoring dashboard populates the monitoring information of artifacts associated with Applications, BizTalk servers, SQL Server Instances, and BizTalk Environment. You can remove the artifact monitoring directly from the Alarm Mapping screen. However, only Super Users (users with highest access privileges) will have access to alarm mapping screen. Normal users will not have the capability to delete an alarm mapping.


The Alarm Mapping information automatically refreshes after every 60 seconds. Therefore, if you make any changes to the artifact monitoring information, the alarm mapping and dashboard will reflect the change within the next 60 seconds.


Viewing The Alarm Mapping

To view the alarm mapping, you need to first create an alarm and set up monitoring for the artifact. For this scenario, let us set up monitoring of one of the SQL job "Operations_OperateOnInstances_OnMaster_BizTalkMsgBoxDb" and map it to "Application Alarm". You can customize the threshold level by setting the Expected Job State to "Disabled". Once the levels are set, BizTalk360 will monitor the SQL job. You can navigate to monitoring dashboard and click on Alarm Mapping tab. Select the corresponding alarm for which you created the mapping from the drop down in the top right corner of the page. You will see the alarm mapping for SQL Job under SQL Server Instances. The steps to create and view an alarm mapping are: 

  1. Create an alarm
  2. Associate the alarm with the appropriate artifact (SQL Server Instance in our case)
  3. Navigate to Monitoring Dashboard and select Alarm Mapping
  4. You will notice the alarm mapping for SQL Jobs under SQL Server Instances
  5. When you click on the SQL Instance name or Artifact name, you will be taken to the corresponding artifacts page

 


Deleting The Alarm Mapping

To delete the artifact mapping with an alarm, you need not go to the artifacts section and change the monitoring status information. You can easily do this from the Monitoring Dashboard. Once again, this functionality is made available only for Super Users. The steps to delete an alarm mapping are: 

  1. Navigate to Monitoring Dashboard and select Alarm Mapping
  2. You will notice the alarm mapping for SQL Jobs under SQL Server Instances (that we created in the above section)
  3. Click the x link
  4. You will be prompted with a confirmation message to delete the mapping. Click Yes to confirm.
  5. The artifact mapping to the alarm gets removed. You can navigate to the corresponding artifacts page to confirm the alarm mapping has been removed.
