Hi Shaik,

Please check the status of the queue, it may be stopped.

The XML messages stuck up in the queue are freed by unlocking queues. Please find the step by step procedure to check the message which is stucked in a queue and unlock it.

Step 1: Run t-code: SXMB_MONI 

Run t-code ‘SXMB_MONI’ in the R/3 system, which sends data to PI to get the following screen.


Step 2: After executing the above screen as shown above, we arrive at the

Monitoring screen for XML messages to be sent to PI. The message with ‘Green’ colored flag shows the messages are in the queue and are thus scheduled for further processing. Also you can ‘Refresh’ or ‘Restart’ messages as shown in Red Color. 


Step 3: If we scroll to the right for a row, then we find the Queue ID as shown below. 


Step 4: Click on the Queue ID to take you to following screen.


Step 5: Again drill down to Queue Name – XBTS0005 to take you to following screen .Our main objective is to unlock the queue for the XML messages.


Here, click on the Unlock Button (RED Square) in the above picture to free the XML message stuck up in the queue. 

Step 6: Now you can see the change in the status of the XML messages again in the SXMB_MONI.


It’s changed to Checkered Flag. 

Please Check the queues using transactions SMQ1 (outbound)/SMQ2 (inbound). Resolve the displayed errors. You can cancel the messages from SXMB_MONI. Execute LUW if necessary and avoid deleting entries manually.

Best Regards,
