 Creating a Connection to a Monitored System Using SAProuterLocate this document in the navigation structure


When monitoring availability with CCMSPING, you can have the connections between CCMSPING and the message servers of the monitored systems created using SAProuter. This is useful, for example, if CCMSPING and the monitored systems are in different areas of your network.

To allow the processing of the communication between CCMSPING and the message server, you need to perform two configuration steps:

  • Enter the host and port of SAProuter in the connection data of the monitored system (Router String input field)
  • Enter the monitored systems in the Route Permission Table of SAProuter

You must have performed the installation of SAProuter.


The connection from the CCMSPING agent through SAProuter works for monitored ABAP systems as of the creation of this availability monitoring. For monitored Java systems, you require an agent as of Patch Collection 2005/7.

Enter SAProuter in the Connection Data of the Monitored System
  1. Start transaction RZ21 in the central monitoring system, and choose the menu path Technical Infrastructure → Availability Monitoring → Configure CCMSPING Monitoring.
  2. Choose the desired system from the list of monitored systems by double-clicking it. The Connection Data and Monitoring Options screen appears (see also Adding Systems to the Availability Monitoring Manually).
  3. There is a Router String input field in the connection data for both the ABAP and Java message servers. Enter the connection data for the SAProuter there in the following format:

    /H/<host name>/S/<port>

    <host name> is the name of the host on which SAProuter is running, <port> is the number of the SAProuter port (by default, 3299)

  4. Save the connection data in the usual way.
Allow Connection to the Monitored Systems Using SAProuter

CCMSPING calls the message servers of the correspondingly configured monitored systems using SAProuter. So that a route of this type is allowed by SAProuter, there needs to be a corresponding entry in the Router Permission Table saprouttab. To set this authorization, proceed as follows:

  1. Call the Route Permission table of your SAProuter.
  2. Ensure that SAProuter allows the connection from CCMSPING to the message server of the monitored system. Depending on whether you are dealing with the ABAP or Java message server, you need to do the following to allow this:
    • ABAP Message Server

      Allow a connection with the following entry:

      S <CCMSPING host> <message server host> <message server port>

      The connection is performed using RFC; since this is an SAP protocol, you can, for example, allow all connections with S * * *.

    • Java Message Server

      Allow a connection with the following entry:

      P <CCMSPING host> <message server host> <message server port>

      Since the Java message server communicates using an HTTP connection, you need to permit the connections with the option P. In contrast to connections using an SAP protocol (see above), you cannot use the wildcard character (*) for a port in this case. This means that you need to explicitly release every message server port used (by default, 8100 + <instance number of the message server>). The wildcard character is permitted for the message server host.

  3. Save the table and restart the SAProuter.
