I'm pleased to inform you that BizTalk Health Monitor (BHM) v2 is finished and will be available very soon on the Microsoft Download Link Center.
The BHM team improved drastically this MMC snap-in to make it more reliable and very customizable.
In this new version you will be able so to customize completly the dasboard views by creating your own tiles to display custom warnings, specific summary reports entries, or even queries output.
You will be also able to add quickly custom queries and rules.
These features were expected by lot of BHM users to provide more flexibility in this health check console and to use it as a centralized health application.
In BHM v2, you can so complete easily the query repository of BHM adding your custom queries executing WMI, .VBS, PowerShell, .CMD or .BAT scripts.
These queries will be stored per group node (renamed "profile" node in BHM v2).
You can also create your own rules in addition to the native BHM rules, using a declarative method to define your own conditions and triggered actions.
These custom rules can target existing native BHM queries but also your own custom queries of course.
These custom rules will also be stored per profile node.
Stay tuned so, BHM availability will be announced on the BHM blog but also on my MBV one.
