Integration & Cloud Monitoring

Scope

Integration and Cloud Monitoring provides monitoring of data exchange between different systems within a system landscape or between systems within the landscape and external components (e.g. public cloud services). Data is collected on managed system side (e.g. for IDocs and PI Messages) and transferred to the Focused Run system or is directly pulled from APIs exposed by the public cloud services into the Focused Run system. Please also check the latest video about Advanced Integration Monitoring in Focused Run.

In the Advanced Integration Monitoring application you find the following monitoring areas:

  • Process Integration Monitor: Monitoring for PI messages and integration channels in SAP PO domains
  • Documents Monitor: Monitoring for document-based integrations like IDocs or BDocs
  • Communication Monitor: Monitoring for the availability and performance of RFC destinations, qRFC or tRFC queues and web service messages
  • Cloud Monitor: Monitoring for SAP public cloud components
  • Integration Error Monitor: Monitor and analyze critical exceptions in heterogeneous system landscapes
  • E2E Monitor: Monitoring of end-to-end message flows
  • Data Replication Monitor: Monitoring of SLT data replication and CFin Data Flow Verification
  • Custom pages: Add custom pages to display AIF monitoring or add any of the above monitoring apps to the personalized page

Features

  • Monitoring
    Get a detailed status overview per business system on the incoming/outgoing messages for different interfaces. Drilldown to single messages to check individual issues and message details
  • Analytics
    Get an overview on historical data for the different integration types to identify trends and compare different time periods.
  • Alerting
    Get an overview on scenario related alerts. Use forward navigation to analyze the alerts in the Alert Inbox
  • Tracking
    Search and track single messages based on specific business context attributes like Order Number.

Integration Scenarios & Flows

In Advanced Integration Monitoring, integration monitoring information is collected on the technical component level. This makes the setup much easier and less error-prone because Focused Run can suggest monitoring categories based on the installed software components. For most of the categories Focused Run also offers default filters, which collect all communication for this monitoring category, no matter where they came from or where they are sent to. These capabilities speed up the initial setup of Advanced Integration Monitoring, as it is no longer necessary to maintain a specific source-target combination for an interface. 

However, this new setup approach also means that the landscape topology, which shows the connections between the systems in the landscape, is no longer created automatically. Instead, the landscape topology can be created in a scenario, if it is required. Creating the landscape topology will usually not be necessary for all interfaces in a landscape. For most of them, the technical component-based view will be sufficient. But if you want to group different point-to-point connections that belong to a more complex interface scenario together, you can do this by setting up a scenario.

For some monitoring categories Focused Run can further more correlate messages sent, via the SAP passport. For these monitoring categories you can set up end-to-end flows that describe messages flows that run over several technical components. You can monitor where in the flow a message is located and how long the overall flow took.
