About the feature
Modules and Section in BizTalk360
Host Throttling From v8.5 version, BizTalk360 has the capability to monitor the Host Throttling feature including the publish and delivery throttle conditions. The different counters include Rate Throttling, Process Throttling, System Throttling, Database Size, User override, Thread count and Database Session.

With this feature, the user will be able to enable the throttling conditions at the Host level. Monitoring will happen for all host instances under the configured Host. When any one of the parameters violates the threshold condition, then the alert service will notify the user accordingly.
Home > Monitoring > BizTalk Environment > Host Throttling
Email Template We had the concept of Email templates in the previous versions of BizTalk360 as well. With the v8.5 version, Email Templates has been revamped to accommodate more customization options and a fresh UI. Multiple email templates can be created (different alarm can use different templates) with customization options including the Email format with dark and light color theme, change the alert description, logo text etc. By default, the Email template is applied to light theme.

Note: When migrating to v8.5, your existing email templates including custom template will be moved to the default template. Post migration, all the existing alarm will use the default template and you can configure a new custom template with the options available in v8.5.
