Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Receive rate

This measure indicates the number of documents being received per second by the application from the BizTalk server.



A value of –1 for this measure indicates that either the BizTalk messaging service or XLANG Schedule Restart Service or Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) may not be running.

If the value of this measure is unusually low, then verify the interface between the BizTalk server and the application.
