Monitoring dashboard improvements on green /red lights
The test was to stop IIS. Simulation of web server crash, malfunction or network error. We performed an IIS Stop service only. No stop of biztalk360 service.
The results: The client browsers keep having the service status green flashing light at top right corner of the Dashboard monitoring portal. And the monitoring icon on the top left turned red saying that the service monitoring service is stopped (which is wrong).
So, on the upper left (blue left panel with the menu), that a red light appeared beside the icons monitoring and analytics. The red light beside monitoring is saying that the monitoring service is stopped (we see that info when i stop the mouse over the icon). But the service monitoring is not stopped. It's still running. (Only IIS was stopped on B360 server). I understand that the browser has lost contact with the web server, so it can't really know the real status but it may say at this time that the status is unknow?
So, since the green light do not turn to red after a backend error, this green flashing light is saying to the user that everything is fine, it's saying that the dashboard monitoring continue to collect status of the system which is false.
There is inconsistency between the monitoring service light (at left) and the service status light (at right) when the client browser lost contact with the B360 web server.
