Dynamic Send Port Handler is Configurable
When creating a Dynamic Send Port, an adapter Send Handler is configurable for every installed adapter. Consider the following scenario:
There are two ESB itineraries in an application. Itinerary1 uses a Dynamic Send Port to send data to a File share. Itinerary2 uses a Dynamic Send Port to send e-mail. In the past, Dynamic send ports execute in the adapter's default host. Itinerary1 is designed to target a low volume - big message size scenario. Itinerary2 targets a high volume - small message size scenario. Since there is only one default host for an adapter, all messages are routed using the same host, decreasing the performance.
To improve the performance of Dynamic Send Ports, an adapter Send Handler is configurable to use any host. In the ESB scenario, Itinerary1 uses HostA to send data to a File share. Itinerary2 uses HostB Port to send e-mail.
Select a Send Handler
When creating a Dynamic One-Way Send Port or Dynamic Solicit-Response Send Port, the Send Handler is configurable for every installed adapter. Steps:
In the BizTalk Server Administration console, expand BizTalk Group [GroupName], expand Applications, and then expand the application to contain the send port.
Right-click Send Ports, click New, and then click Dynamic One-way Send Port or Dynamic Solicit-Response Send Port.
In Properties, click Configure.
The adapters are listed with the default Send Handler. Click the down arrow to select a different host.
Click OK save the settings.
Unenlist and reenlist the new dynamic send port.
Restart the original host instance.
Restart the new host instance.
Additional Send Port configuration options include:
The different hosts can be fine-tuned. The following links discuss performance optimization:
