Interface and Connection Monitoring Setup
An interface channel in Interface and Connection Monitoring (ICMon) can be set up and monitored in two different monitoring use-cases. One is the application operations related view of Integration Monitoring. The second one is the more business process focused view from Business Process Monitoring.
Note: Please note that you can assign one channel to more than one ICMon scenario and/or business process interface. The data is collected only once and displayed in whatever ICMon scenario or business process you are coming from. This reduces the data collection load on the managed system and the data load on SAP Solution Manager.
The access path to the setup and the steps that have to be taken before you can actually set up the monitoring for the interface channel are slightly different even though the actual channel monitoring setup is identical for both contexts.
Note: Infrastructure Configuration
Please note that you have to perform the infrastructure configuration no matter of you want to set up the interface monitoring in the context of Integration Monitoring or in the context of Business Process Monitoring.
