Among others, SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII) is used to integrate plants and enterprise systems. SAP MII is able to integrate with various system types, communicating via RFC, HTTP or SOAP calls (depending on the communication partner).
The following entities are important:
SAP MII messages can be monitored with older versions of SAP Focused Run, however we recommend to use SAP Focused Run 3.0 FP00 to monitor SAP MII messages.
To be able to monitor SAP MII queues you need:
SAP Focused Run 2.0 FP02 and FP03
The following minimum system requirements apply to the managed SAP MII system:
Note that metrics "Number of failed JCo messages", "Number of intermediate JCo messages", "Number of successful JCo messages", and "Average time to process JCo messages" require to have at least:
To use the new features for SAP MII monitoring:
SAP Focused Run 3.0 FP00
and the following minimum support package level for SAP MII system:
To be able to monitor interfaces of an on-premise system you first have to add it to Interface & Cloud Monitoring and select the monitoring categories you want to monitor for the system.
In the next step, you see all monitoring categories which are available for the system, depending on the system type and the installed software components. Some recommended standard monitoring categories are preselected.
Select the monitoring categories in scope.
Available Monitoring Categories
The available monitoring categories are:
After selecting your monitoring categories you have to maintain filters to define what exactly you want to monitor. Some monitoring categories come with standard filters that usually just select all items of this monitoring category. SAP Focused Run can handle this high amount of monitoring data, so you can stick to this standard filters. Or you can set up filters of your own. You can create more than one filter for a monitoring category.
Available Filter Options
For SAP MII message monitoring, you can collect all MII messages sent or received in the managed system. You can also use the following filter parameters, to restrict the data collection:
For SAP MII queue monitoring, you can collect all MII queues in the managed system. You can also use the following filter parameters, to restrict the data collection:
The setup of the filters for the monitoring categories only makes sure that the data is collected, however, alerts are not created automatically. To create alerts and notifications you have to create an alert individually. If you didn't use specific filters in the setup before, but rather opted to collect all data, you have to create filters for the alerts.
In the next sub-step, you have to maintain the filter. The filter values are the same as described above. For some metrics, you have to maintain metric parameters. Find details below in the overview of the available metrics.
In the last sub-step you have to activate the alert:
For single exceptions, the threshold type is always 'Already Rated'. This means depending on the calculation frequency the number of exceptions is checked and an alert is created if this number is bigger than 0. If you want to reduce the number of alert for these metrics, you could increase the value for the calculation frequency to increase the time between checks.
For interfaces of type MII the following metrics are collected:
