Good Morning PI

            As* we always treat our Production environment with all our respect, one of most significant area that every PI Consultant would like to visit everyday to start their day is message monitoring.  SAP has come up with beautiful feature that let you monitor periodic message processing status using Runtime Work Bench (RWB). RWB is single point of entry for message monitoring of messages in Integration Server, Adapter Engine, and Decentral Adapter Engine.  <br /><br />Ofcourse, you have another wonderful transaction ‘sxi_monitor’  aka ‘sxmb_moni’ let you monitor messages of Integration Server that includes Integration Engine, Business Process Engine specific on the ABAP level of PI. <br /><br />Message Monitoring Helps in monitoring messages status and find errors that have occurred and establish what caused them. <br /><br />URL – http://<hostname>:<http port>/rwb/index.jsp<br />URL – https://<hostname>:<https port>/rwb/index.jsp  <br /><br /><p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”>RWB->Message Monitoring</p><p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”> </p><p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”>!|height=317|alt=image|width=641|src=|border=0!” </p><p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”> </p>Default View* – provides you the overview of messages from the component Integration Engine sorted by Sender and Receiver (Interface and Component specific) for last 24hrs messages status. But you can filter as per you requirement.

Below steps briefs on different options available to filter the messages. Under Message Monitoring: Option 1

  • Select Database or Database Overview (default) or Archive (if this feature enabled).

Under Message Overview: Option 2  1. Message Overview has different Views as listed below 1. Message Status Sorted By Receiver

2. Message Status Sorted By Sender


Messages Status Sorted By Receiver and Sender (Overview)     Which is default view0.1. Messages Status Sorted By Receiver and Sender (Detail View)

The only difference between view C and D is – with option D you <br />+get to see Sender and Receiver Interface Namespace details

+0.1. Time: Option 3

1. By default system shows for last 24hrs

2. But you have options to choose Hourly, Daily, Monthly, Annually (Being high volume Production environment you can only see messages of last few days which is as per Archiving/Delete Configuration in the system)

0.1. Visible Rows

1. Select ‘All’ to see all interfaces/Components messages status for selected View

 Once you make your selection from the available options, system will display messages status like below shown which is apart from details like Sender Component, Sender Interface, Receiver Component, Receiver Interface and Sender/Receiver Interface Namespace details (provided if you have selected option ‘Under Message Overview: Option 2->1->d’ View).

So its one place to see all messages status for last 24 hrs and troubleshoot based on the status as required. By clicking on the numbers under Error, Scheduled, Successful and Terminated with error; system takes you to Messaging Tool like below screen, being in the screen select the messages and click on ‘Details’ button to see the audit log of the selected message. Based on the info you perhaps start troubleshooting.
