Monitoring Workflow hosted in IIS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Could anybody tell me how to track/monitor a workflow service hosted in IIS? 

    Similar to workflow monitor sample provided by link below.  I tried this sample from Microsoft and it seems that it only works for a "console hosted" workflow application.

    And I'm using the expense sample project provided by this link
    http://layersample.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=22510

    Thanks in advance.

  • After hours of searching, I finally figured out the problem.  We need to have "Distributed Transaction Coordinator" service running in order for the tracking to work.

    Cheers!

  • It works for any workflow system that uses the SQLTrackingService. Add that you your WF Runtime which is hosted in IIS and it will work. You can add this service via the Web.Config file configurations or by loading the runtime in the application start event and adding the services at that time.
