Analyzing the Runtime CacheLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use

To ensure that the relevant Integration Engines have quick access to the contents of the Enterprise Services Repository and Integration Directory at runtime, the information required is loaded into corresponding caches. Caches also contain the runtime-relevant data from the System Landscape Directory.

The Integration Directory cache is always updated:

  • When a change list is activated in the Integration Directory

  • A change list in the Enterprise Services Repository is updated that contains objects (mapping objects or integration processes) that are used in the Integration Directory

For the purposes of troubleshooting, you can analyze the runtime cache and, if necessary, update it.

Procedure

Analyzing the Runtime Cache

  1. To analyze the runtime cache, log on to the system with the Integration Engine client and choose Start of the navigation path Process Integration Next navigation step Configuration Next navigation step Integration Directory Cache End of the navigation path (Transaction SXI_CACHE ).

    On the left of the screen, those object types whose runtime versions you can analyze are displayed in a tree structure. To display the object key for object types whose object key comprises communication components or parties or both (for example, receiver determinations), expand the relevant tree node.

    The traffic light icon at the top of the screen on the right displays the status of the cache.

    • Red: the cache is not up-to-date. This means that there are objects in activated Integration Directory change lists that are not yet contained in the cache.

    • Amber: the cache is currently being updated. This means that you must wait until the cache update is complete.

    • Green: the cache is up-to-date and can be analyzed.

  2. To display more information about an object, double-click it.

    The attributes of each object are displayed.

Update the Runtime Cache

To update the runtime cache, perform one the following tasks.

Task

Procedure

Update Cache

To update the runtime cache, in the menu bar choose Start of the navigation path Runtime Cache Next navigation step Start Delta Cache Refresh End of the navigation path (or choose the icon in the toolbar). The missing activated change lists are included in the runtime cache.

Update Cache Completely

To restructure the cache completely, in the menu bar choose Start of the navigation path Runtime Cache Next navigation step Start Complete Cache Refresh End of the navigation path.

Display Cache-Update Errors

If an error occurred while updating the runtime cache, a red traffic light is shown. To display information about an error, in the menu bar choose Start of the navigation path Runtime Cache Next navigation step Display Refresh Error End of the navigation path.

Display Adapter Engine Cache

To display the runtime cache of the relevant Adapter Engine, in the menu bar choose Start of the navigation path Goto Next navigation step AE Cache End of the navigation path.
