    I am in the process of load testing the Biztalk implementation in my organisation and am trying to wade my way through the large number of performance counters available.

    What I am trying to understand is what key counters I need to be looking at with respect to Messaging and Orchestrations. Whilst the description of the counters is useful an insight to the key Biztalk counters will be very useful.

    Please can anyone tell me why I don't see any results from the BizTalk:Message Agent using PerfMon? I selected all instances and yet the report still shows 0. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Thanks. Appreciate any response.

    We regularly have a scenario where we have an important number of instances which stay in a "ready to run" state in BizTalk. This number does not decrement and we are forced to restart our BizTalk host to correct the issue. Any idea why we may getting this problem ?
