The status overview function in message monitoring in the Runtime Workbench is supplied for the first time with Releases SAP NetWeaver 3.0 Support Package 20 and SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Support Package 12. To use this function, you must first activate it in the Runtime Workbench and in the runtime components that need to be monitored (J2EE Adapter Engine or ABAP Integration Engine). The new message overview gives you an overview of message processing within a certain time period, sorted by sender or receiver attributes. Here are the step by step instructions: Step 1: Using the visual administrator, the ‘messaging.system.statusLog’ property of the SAP XI AF Messaging Service must contain the values ‘Send,Recv,Event’: messaging.system.statusLog=Send,Recv,Event This property must be set accordingly on each server node, and then the service must be restarted. Step 2: Activating the function for the Integration Engine (ABAP) runtime: To activate/deactivate the function, use transaction SE38 to execute the RSXMB_AGG_XPI_ADMIN program, and choose the relevant action on the selection screen. Let the aggregation profile parameter retain its predefined value ‘XPI_SEND_RECV_01’. When the function is deactivated, all data for the message overview for the Integration Engine is deleted, and the function is no longer available for this component in the Runtime Workbench. Step 3: In exchange profile, enter a new parameter, under Runtime Workbench category called com.sap.aii.rwb.showmessageoverview and set its value to true. If the value is anything other than true then the messaging overview option will NOT be displayed. I had to restart the J2EE engine for the Overview option to be displayed in the message monitoring. This parameter is evaluated during the next cache refresh. Step 4: If the function is activated in Release SAP NetWeaver 2004 Support Package 20 or 2004s support Packag3 12, you will need to use the transaction PFCG to add the value ‘SXMS_MSGAGG_RFC_PROC’ to the authorization check during RFC access (object S_RFC) for the RFC_NAME field in the following roles: roles : SAP_XI_RWB_SERV_USER, SAP_XI_MONITOR_ABAP SAP_XI_ADMINISTRATOR_ABAP, SAP_XI_DISPLAY_USER_ABAP The result of this is when you goto Message monitoring in RWB, you will see a dropdown and by clicking on it, you will see the overview of messages. There are many different options available in the message overview. Its very intuitive and easy to use. Message overview is the default option in the message monitoring. I wish the default was left alone.
