This blog is a continuation of the blog series Integration Suite – Simplified Onboarding and Provisioning . Here I would explain different ways an Integration Suite customer can view the usage ( instances and messages) reported from the tenants.
SAP Integration Suite comes in different variants to cater the needs of customers.
Refer the SAP note https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2903776 for getting more details on features offered via different SKUs of Integration Suite.
You can also refer SAP Discovery Center to understand the pricing related details.
In this blog, I would walk you through different Usage metrics available for Integration Suite metering.
Let’s get started.
Integration Suite – Usage:
Integration Suite usage is measured with two metrics : instances and messages.
The below table summarizes different metrics displayed for Integration Suite service in the BTP cockpit:
Total number of tenants.
Example: If the value is 3 for the current month,You would be charged for 3 units of tenants against SAP Integration Suite, standard edition (8008411)
This can be viewed from Global Account overview screen.
This means Additional Messages in the Blocks of 10K messages.
Example: If the value is 2 for the current month,You would be charged for 2 units of Additional Messages against SAP Integration Suite, add’l messages (8008414)
|Total Integration Suite Messages excl. SAP to SAP||
Total Integration Suite messages minus the messages consumed via SAP-to-SAP standard-unmodified integration flows.
This message metric would contribute to the derivation of billable messages.
If you have 2 Integration Suite tenants and let’s say in a month the messages consumption from tenant one is 12500 , tenant two is 17500 ,
Total chargeable additional messages = 30000 – 20000 = 10000 = 1 block of 10k message.
You would be charged for 1 additional message against 8008414 .
|Total Cloud Integration Messages||Total messages consumed via the cloud integration capability. Note that this value includes the SAP-to-SAP messages as well.|
|Total API Management Messages||Total messages consumed via the API Management capability|
|Total Open Connector Messages||Total messages consumed via the Open Connector capability|
|Excluded SAP-to-SAP Integration Messages||Total messages consumed via standard,unmodified content delivered by SAP,which is meant for SAP-to-SAP Integration scenarios.|
Total Integration Suite Messages excl. SAP to SAP = (Total Cloud Integration Messages + Total API Management Messages + Total Open Connector Messages ) – Excluded SAP-to-SAP Integration Messages
Refer the SAP Note 2942344 – SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite – Message Metric Definition – SAP ONE Support Launchpad for getting additional details on the definition of Integration Suite message .
Now let’s have a closer look at different available screens for viewing the usage from different persona point of view:
