The Message Box Viewer (MBV) is a tool that can be used to analyze and fix issues in the BizTalk server environment. The MBV tool was initially built as a hobby project by one of the Microsoft Support Person. The importance of this tool has grown to the extent that even today if you call up Microsoft with a support query, the first thing they ask you to do is to run the MBV Viewer and gather the information of the environment.


MBV is capable of identifying potential issues in the BizTalk environment and let the administrators know:

  • Whether the BizTalk databases are at their optimum levels in terms of size
  • Whether backup jobs are configured properly
  • Whether default throttling settings are changed
  • Performance issues
  • Problems with custom configuration


MBV has over 400 rules to verify different things on the BizTalk server environment and gathers the results that provides information on the health of environment. BizTalk360 takes advantage of the power of MBV and comes with a first class integration into its architecture. So what's different in BizTalk360? By integrating MBV, BizTalk360 offers the following added extra values to the users:

  • Perform scheduled execution of MBV
  • Reports categorized in a nicer way
