Functions for Monitoring and Controlling the Mobile Device

SAP MI provides you with functions to monitor and control the mobile device. You can distribute these functions to the mobile devices using device configurations. For more information, see Configuration of Mobile Devices Using Device Configurations

You can use the following functions:

?      Monitoring Battery Capacity

You use this function to monitor the battery capacity of the mobile device. If it has been configured to do so, the battery capacity is logged on the mobile device and transferred to the server in regular intervals during the synchronization.

?      Setting Registry Values

This function allows you to read and set values in the registry for the mobile device.

?      Configuration of Scripts

You use this function to configure the scripts on the mobile device.

?      Definition of Start-Up Parameters

You can use this function to define which applications are automatically started when the mobile device is started. The device sends the status of the respective application to the Computing Center Management System (CCMS). If an application that is optional cannot be started, the system displays a warning (yellow). If a mandatory application cannot be started, the system generates an error (red).

?      Storage Monitoring

This function enables you to monitor a mobile device’s storage media and storage capacity. The current storage status is sent to the server when the mobile device synchronizes. If the status is critical, it is displayed in the Computing Center Management System (CCMS).

?      Time and Date Settings

You use this function to monitor and change the time and date settings on the mobile device.

?      Setting Parameters in MobileEngine.config (MI_CONFIG)

You use this function to configure the behavior of SAP MI on the mobile device.
