 Selfmonitoring CCMS Agents MonitorLocate this document in the navigation structure


Use this monitor to monitor the SAP NetWeaver Management Agents and CCMS Agents in your IT landscape. The following information about the agents appears:

  • The host on which the agent was installed
  • The application server that the agent is checking (for instance agents)
  • How long the agent has been active or inactive, and when it was last checked
  • The availability of the agent


The following agents that are registered with the local system have at least one subtree of their own in this monitor:

  • SAP NetWeaver Management Agents
  • CCMS Agents
  • CCMSPING (but only if the agent was registered with the option -push)

The name of the subtree is the same as the name for the logical Web service port responsible for the agent (in the case of CCMS agents, the RFC destination of the agent) and has the following structure:

<Type of agent>.<Name of host system>.<System number of monitored instance>

Each of these subtrees consists of the following monitoring tree elements (MTEs):

MTE Name (MTE Class) Description

Information about which application server on which host is monitored by the agent

Status (CsmTaskCcmsAgent.Status)

Information about whether the agent is active or inactive and how long it has been in that state

Heartbeat (CsmTaskCcmsAgent.Heartbeat)

Time since the last test of whether the agent is still active; if the agent is inactive, this attribute contains the value 0 sec

Availability (CsmTaskCcmsAgent.Availability)

Percentage of the time in which the agent is active (by default in the last 15 minutes; you can change the time period in the Properties of the MTE class)

Agent Version (CsmTaskCcmsAgent.Version)

Static information about the agent used:

  • CCMS version
  • systemid
  • relno
