Central PI Monitoring vs PI Templates in System Monitoring
Stechies

There are two options for Process Integration Monitoring in Solution Manager:

  1.  Central PI Monitoring
  2.  PI Templates through System Monitoring

Difference between Central PI Monitoring and PI Templates in System Monitoring?

Central PI Monitoring 

it is strongly recommended to use Central PI Monitoring if you are using PI 7.11 SP06 or a higher release, instead of using PI related metrics in System Monitoring.

In SAP Solution Manager Central PI monitoring provides unified alert notifications, exceptions and status of PI components from any single entry point. 

Central PI monitoring also provides options to enable us to navigate to details of such exceptions in the respective host system. It becomes easier for addressing the issues more quickly and efficiently.  It is possible to:

  • Monitor availability of PI component in the entire PI domain (distributed across multiple technical systems in your global landscape).
  • Monitor PI communication channel availability for all central and de-central adapter engines in the entire PI domain from central SAP Solution Manager.
  • Monitor PI messages (errors, backlog and message flow) on all PI components in the PI domain.
  • Search for the payload in PI messages across multiple PI components in the PI domain.
  • Alert erroneous PI messages based on PI alert rules (also single PI messages).

PI Templates through System Monitoring

The PI related metrics does not belong into System Monitoring. In order to monitor the PI systems, the application Central PI Monitoring was created where those metrics should be used. But for all users who are using below PI 7.11 SP06, this application could not be offered (because all required APIs are not available in the older PI releases). Therefore some of the PI data collectors are used in System Monitoring to fill this gap.

PI Templates through System Monitoring is only available for PI System with 7.10 and 7.11. As mentioned above, if you have PI 7.11 SP06 or a higher release, it is recommended to use Central PI Monitoring instead of using the PI related metrics in System Monitoring (unfortunately MAI content cannot be restricted on SP level, therefore these metrics are available also in PI 7.11 with higher SPs.)

These are the available PI Templates through System Monitoring:

  • SAP PI Adapter Engine 7.0
