Control and monitoring are essential features of an EAI environment.
Status message has the main role in monitoring. When a data message is processed by an EAI component, this component generates an status menssage. Then a tool can use this information to show the component where the message stopped.
However you must be careful with the amount of status message.
A large number of status message can prejudice the EAI platform performance. In some cases, the entire environment must work and data message transport stops because status messages can not be processed.
The architecture must guarantee that data messages will pass through EAI even if there is some problem with status message.
Moreover, it is necessary evaluate if the status message amount makes sense.
