From the Tips-and-Trick Department:
You might already know that you can view XML messages traveling through the Vordel XML Gateway in real-time using the Adobe Flash based Real-time Monitoring facility of the XML Gateway:
But did you know that you can also point the Vordel Monitoring Console at the XML Gateway in order to view XML message content in real-time? To enable this, first enable "Logging to remote console":
Then run the Monitoring Console (from /win32/bin/vordelmonitorconsole under Windows, /posix/bin/vordelmonitorconsole under Linux and Solaris). Choose "Socket Connect" and connect it to the XML Gateway, entering the credentials to authenticate to the XML Gateway. You'll then see the XML traffic in real-time.
Note that the Monitoring Console can also be used as a log viewer, by opening up the logs which are written by the XML Gateway. If you want to view historical trends in service usage, plus information about which clients are using which services, then VordelReporter is the tool for that job.
