Configuration of the Computing Center Management System


With the Computing Center Management System (CCMS), the administrator can monitor the systems of SAP MI with transaction RZ20 or the path Tools  ® CCMS  ® Control/Monitoring  ® Alert Monitor under SAP Mobile Infrastructure Templates  ® Mobile Infrastructure.


The following information can be displayed for SAP Mobile Infrastructure (SAP MI):

?      Configuration: Configuration data for the device on which the client, server, and back-end system are installed. This includes, for example, information about the relevant processors and storage capacities.

?      Heartbeats: Availability data of the back-end systems, the client and the J2EE servers.

?      Job Monitoring: Information about monitored background jobs

?      Alerts: Messages from the client. These include, for example, warning messages if a certain percentage of the remaining storage is exhausted.

?      Logs and Traces: Log and trace information from the client and the server. This includes, for example, error messages. In this area, you can also mark error messages to be edited or delete them.

Functions provided by SAP MI that support the CCMS:

?      Alert Monitor (transaction MI_ALMON):

With the alert monitor, you can display the alerts that were reported to the CCMS. You can make your selections on the basis of various criteria. The entire history is displayed.

?      Reorganization Tool (transaction MI_ALBACK):

You can clean up the alert files sporadically using the reorganization tool. You can select and deactivate alerts according to various criteria or store them at a given location. The stored alert files can be imported again as needed.


You must perform the following configuration steps to monitor the SAP MI with the CCMS.

Configuration Steps

Configuration Step



Transaction RZ21, Technical infrastructure  ® Method Execution  ® Activate background dispatching

Set tracing for the monitored system. The user can make this setting for the client. Alternatively, the administrator can set the tracing.

The data can only be transmitted to the server if the user sent the trace to the server and synchronized it.

For information on presettings made by the administrator, see Parameters in MobileEngine.config.

For information about user settings and sending to the server, see Configuring the Trace for Error Correction.

Define which background jobs should be monitored by the CCMS.

Configuring Monitoring of Background Jobs

Adjust the alerts to your needs.

Customizing for Alerts

Assign authorizations for reorganizing alerts.

Role Editing

Specify the host and port for the J2EE Engine that is to be monitored.  

Customizing: SAP NetWeaver  ® SAP Mobile Infrastructure  ® Make Host Name and Port of the J2EE Engine Known

(Optional) Adjust the frequency of execution of job SAP_CCMS_MONI_BATCH_DP.

Transaction SM37 or Tools  ® CCMS ® Jobs  ® SM37 Maintenance

The value should be between 30 and 60 minutes. The default value is 60 minutes.

(Optional) Change the properties in the Alert Monitor, for example, for the tracing table Client table counter.

Transaction RZ20

Select the node and choose Properties. For more information, see the documentation about the CCMS under Alert Monitor.

The storage requirement in the shared memory of the CCMS increases with the number of clients and implemented alerts. If required, you can change the storage settings for your profile using transaction RZ10 under Extended maintenance. See also SAP Note 135503.
