The CCMS monitoring infrastructure was designed as an open infrastructure. If a new component is to be monitored, the developers design a new data supplier, which is integrated into the CCMS monitoring infrastructure. From then on, the new data supplier delivers the most important monitoring data about the component.
In addition to the data supplier, developers define an analysis method that provides additional information about the component if a problem occurs. If necessary, an auto-reaction can also be defined, which is automatically started if an alert occurs.
The CCMS monitoring infrastructure provides the periodic start of the data supplier and the display and alert administration services. The quality and usefulness of the monitoring data for your component depend entirely on the developer of the component.
Report only the most important information. Nothing is worse than an Alert Monitor overloaded with data, which is always red, and with which no customer can work. If errors occur, the analysis method can collect detailed information and display it centrally.
To instrument your component for the CCMS monitoring infrastructure, proceed as follows:
Consider how you want to monitor your component.
Decide how you want to add your component to the CCMS monitoring infrastructure. This is essentially about the structure of the tree in the Alert Monitor (transaction RZ20).
Consider whether you require particular functions of the CCMS monitoring infrastructure to implement your design. The attribute types to be used depend on this.
Produce the prerequisites for the programming, such as preparing messages (short and long texts) for display in the Alert Monitor, preparing data collection and analysis methods, and so on.
Perform the programming of the data supplier and the definition of the methods

If you do not have time for detailed design decisions, or simply want to create a prototype, you can copy one of the following examples reports and change them to meet your requirements:
