As a part of Integration Monitoring, Interface and Connection Monitoring (ICMon) in SAP Solution Manager provides you with a powerful tool to monitor various interface technologies within your landscape. This wiki will provide you with information on the setup and the usage of ICMon.
Interface and Connection Monitoring in Solution Manager 7.1 SP12 comprises now all the metrics from Interface Channel Monitoring, Connection Monitoring and the former Interface Monitoring metrics from Business Process Monitoring in one powerful tool. All metrics are set up as Interface Channels, which allows you to abstract from a concrete technical implementation of an interface and bring together different interfaces that serve the same business purpose. Inside an Interface Channel the separate interfaces can be defined and metrics can be selected which monitor the interface in various aspects, focusing on error or backlog situations during processing. The Interface Channels can be assigned to ICMon scenarios as well as to Business Process Monitoring scenarios.
In Solution Manager 7.1 Connection Monitoring is still available as standalone application, even though its metrics are already integrated in ICMon. This application will be retired with Solution Manager 7.2. and will be no longer available.
