Monitoring Availability of Services and Components
The CCMSPING agent lets you monitor the availability of SAP Systems. But you can also use the monitoring architecture to monitor the availability of components and services other than SAP Systems. You can monitor the availability of components and services that are accessed by way of RFC destinations from an SAP System. You can use CCMSPING to monitor external SAP components that use the SAP NI (Network Interface) library, including such components as ITS A-Gates and SAP routers.
