FIX: Delivery notification in a send port causes performance degradation in BizTalk Server 2004

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When you use delivery notification in a send port, you may experience performance degradation. This problem occurs in a Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 orchestration.
This problem occurs because the instance of the orchestration is dehydrated automatically at the point of delivery notification. The dehydration and then the later rehydration cause performance degradation.
