hi bhanu,

SAP XI uses the monitoring infrastructure of SAP NetWeaver Application Server, such as the CCMS alert monitor and the alert framework. Monitoring can be accessed using the Runtime Workbench (RWB).

The following tools are used by the Runtime Workbench :

CCMS (Computing Center Management System)

u2022 Monitoring and administration of SAP System Landscapes

u2022 Configuration possible within Runtime Workbench

TPM (Process Monitoring Infrastructure)

u2022 Monitor and analyze integrated processes involving multiple components in distributed system environments

u2022 Display detailed information about processes, process flow, process steps and performance figures

Alerting Framework

u2022 Configuration of alerts to reflect the needs of specific processes

u2022 Part of SAP Web AS


The CCMS Monitor returns a status in the Runtime Workbench for every component. The information is displayed by means of an icon, which can be red, yellow, green and gray (red for a problem, yellow for a warning, green for success and gray for undefined)

The following are the capabilities of CCMS

u2022 CCMS forms the core component of the Alert Framework.
