New MBV builds : Lot of additional queries and fixes

Hello,

 

I updated today a new build of MBV.

With the previous one published few weeks ago, MBV brings now lot of new interesting queries and fixes (see below the complete list).

 

As interesting new query, MBV is parsing now your SQL Error logs for critical errors and raise corresponding warnings if found.

MBV is reporting now also the SQL agent log containg any errors if the BizTalk jobs are failing.

MBV includes also now the "tempdb" inf Db analyzed so you can see quickly in MBV report the size and  files info about your temp. Knowing as important the tempdb is, it can be useful to have this info in report as well.
I added also again some new parsing rules for the Eventlog query identifying so possible know issues bases on the event source, event ID, and the event message contain.

 

Feel free so to use now latest version on my blog (http://blogs.technet.com/jpierauc/pages/msgboxviewer.aspx) containing these features and report me your comment or bugs found

 

Thanks !

 

JP

  • Hi JP,

             I´ve been working with the latest MBV version since months ago, it was really helpfull for me, i have some doubt about the report information, coz i´ve already implemented and installed the BTS SP1 and Hotfix KB 934849 as the MBV report suggest me, but now im a little bit confused coz after this installation, the report continue me inform about installing this feature like i never did it, do you know what can be the cause? need some specially reset the MBV appl?

    Thanks for your time

    Alberto

  • Hi Alberto,

    be careful, my rule suggesting to install maybe KB 934849 is not checking really for your version of COM+ installed on your BTS, SQL or MQS destination servers, it just alert you on the fact that because you use SQL or MQS ports using COM+ components, this hotfix can be interesting to check, thats all what this rule is doing.

    So even if you already installed this hotfix, the watrning will continue to appear

    About SP1, are you talking about BTS 2006 R2 SP1 ? if yes I will release very soon (begining of September) a new build fixing that
