Consistency Check of the CCMS Monitoring InfrastructureLocate this document in the navigation structure


The CCMS Monitoring Infrastructure provides reliable and powerful functions for the central monitoring of any IT environments. The large number of these functions and configuration settings on the one hand, and the many places in which errors can occur on the other mean that it can become very time-consuming to search for the causes of any errors that occur or inconsistent configuration settings, and to correct these.

The CCMS consistency check is available to you for this purpose. The associated transactions RZ50, RZ51, and RZ52 provide a variety of functions to check the configuration and runtime of the CCMS monitoring infrastructure, to display errors, and to correct these automatically. The checks are called from the central monitoring system (CEN) and include both the CEN itself and the monitored systems. The individual checks, each of which relate to a topic in the central monitoring system or in a monitored system, are called check objects.

In detail, the consistency check provides the following functions:

  • You can check the configuration settings of the CEN and (where it is meaningful) have them repaired, for example, in the following areas:

    • Correct scheduling of required jobs of the CCMS monitoring infrastructure

    • Settings for availability monitoring with CCMSPING and GRMG

    • Configuration of the connections to monitored systems

    • Assignment of central auto-reaction methods

    • Specific monitoring settings, such as the monitoring of selected transactions and jobs

  • You can display runtime errors for nodes in CEN and in monitored systems and have the errors repaired.

  • You can display the status of the connections between CEN and the monitored systems.

  • You can check the currentness of the data for selected nodes in CEN and in the monitored systems.

  • You can define reference settings for specific nodes and, if necessary, centrally distribute these to all monitored systems. These settings are combined and stored as a check group. The reference settings include the following:

    • Threshold values

    • Method assignments (data collection methods, analysis methods, and auto-reaction methods)

    You can either assign the specified reference settings at MTE class level, or import them from any monitor of any system. This means that, for the first time, the CCMS monitoring infrastructure provides you with a way of centrally customizing threshold values and method settings. More information: Checking and Distributing Settings for Selected MTEs and Monitors.

  • In addition to the automatic distribution of threshold values and method settings, you can have identified problems automatically corrected in various check groups; for more information about this, refer to Troubleshooting and Distributing Settings of the Consistency Check.

  • You can call the CCMS consistency check both in dialog and as a job with the check results automatically sent by e-mail.

You can also define and save the parts of all of the possible checks that are relevant for you. A selection of this type is called a check area. This means that you can have only your desired checks performed during the consistency check. More information: Restricting the CCMS Consistency Check to Specific Topics.
