BizTalk360 contains a monitoring service specifically to collect the throttling performance counter data from various servers in the environment. The service collects the throttling information of the host/host instances configuration every 15 seconds. Throttling Analyser feature in BizTalk360 plots them in a graph that will help the user to understand the different states of the host/host instances during a time range. The support users may/may not have sufficient information about the throttling state and the mitigation strategy to reduce the throttling conditions of the host/host instance. This is where Knowledge Base articles can be really helpful for support people to understand the problem and identify a solution.

Adding New KB Article For Throttling Data

Let's say throttling activity of a host instance is being monitored and at a point of time the monitoring service plots the throttling state against the 'System Memory'. Once the reason and a mitigation strategy is identified  for the throttling, as a best practice, the information can be documented so that it could be handy for support personnel when they encounter a similar situation.
