Monitoring SequencesLocate this document in the navigation structure


Web Services Reliable Messaging (WSRM) ensures that message exchange between a service provider and a service consumer is completed without fault. Here messages are combined into sequences. The reliability of sequence transmission is adopted by the Web service runtime. Using the analysis tools of the sequence monitor, you can find and remove any errors that occur during transmission.

You use the sequence monitor in the following cases:

  • To monitor the sequence status.

  • To end or restart sequences with errors.
