Article ID: 907661 - View products that this article applies to.
In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, you notice that the Tracking_Spool1 or Tracking_Spool2 tables in the BiztalkMsgBoxDb database become very large and consume lots of disk space.
This issue occur when one of the following conditions is true:
To work around this issue, enable the TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job in SQL Server Agent. To enable the TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job, follow these steps:
The BizTalkMsgBoxDb database contains the Tracking_Spool1 table and the Tracking_Spool2 table. If you have not run the TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job before, only one of these tables contains any rows.
The first time that you run the TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job, the Tracking_Spool2 table is empty and is the inactive table. The TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job purges the Tracking_Spool2 table and then marks the Tracking_Spool1 table as inactive. The job also marks the Tracking_Spool2 table as the active table. The BizTalkMsgBoxDb database then logs message body data in the Tracking_Spool2 table.
The next time that you run the TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job, the job purges the inactive Tracking_Spool1 table, marks the Tracking_Spool1 table as active, and then marks the Tracking_Spool2 table as inactive. Therefore, if you run the TrackingSpool_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb job one time every two weeks, you will have two weeks of data for message body data tracking.
If you do not want to delete any message body data, use the Archivemessages.vbs file to archive message body data. Then use the Restoremessages.vbs file to restore data when the data is required. By default, the Archivemessages.vbs and Restoremessages.vbs files are located in the following folder:
