  1. Hi Sandro

    Thank you for a good article series on the BizTalk operational data. Have you had any problems to get anything else than the 50000 last message events from the BizTalkOperationalDataService/TrackedMessageEvents? I cannot seem to get it to return anything but 50k last events. Our BizTalk environment handles 3-4 million events per day which basically renders the operational data service useless which is a shame since we want to be able to use it. Have a nice day Sandro!
