Monitoring MessagesLocate this document in the navigation structure


You use message monitoring to search for Web service messages that were sent or received on your system using Web Services Reliable Messaging (WS-RM). You monitor messages, for example, in the following cases:

  • To track the status of Web service messages.

  • To find errors that have occurred and establish what caused them.

Message monitoring has two different modes for searching for Web service messages in the database:

  • In standard mode, you can use a particular message status to search for Web service messages processed within a particular time period.

  • In advanced mode, you can use additional criteria to search for messages. This way you can narrow down the search results and view only messages you need.

In each mode, you can restrict the number of Web service messages to be displayed.
