In addition to configuring which systems and application servers are to be monitored by CCMSPING (seeConfiguring Availability Monitoring), you can also define the frequency with which CCMSPING should perform the availability monitoring, and for how long it should wait for a response from the message servers and the application servers when it does so.
Changing Timeouts and Monitoring Frequency of CCMSPING (with -push option)
The technical settings of the registered availability agent CCMSPING are stored in the table ALAVLCTRL. This table is only relevant for those agents that actively report the availability values to the central monitoring system (CEN), that is, agents that were registered with the -push option (seeInstalling the CCMSPING Availability Agent).
Since there is no separate user interface for maintaining the technical settings, you need to make the settings in the Data Browser (transaction SE16):
To change the length of time for which a specific CCMSPING waits for a response from the ABAP and Java message servers, enter the desired wait time in milliseconds for the relevant CCMSPING as the value of the entry PING_TIMEOUT. The default value is 1500 (1.5 seconds).
By default, the CCMSPING agent calls the message server once a minute for availability monitoring. It is not possible to have the monitoring performed more frequently. To have the monitoring performed less frequently, enter the desired interval in seconds for the relevant CCMSPING agent as the value of the entry PING_FREQ.
Two additional entries: TRACE and TIMESTAMP are useful for finding and correcting errors. For more information, seeFinding and Correcting Errors with CCMSPING
Changing the Timeout of the Availability Agent CCMSPING (Without the -push Option)
If you have registered CCMSPING without the -push option, the availability monitoring is essentially performed every five minutes. You can also register only one CCMSPING with your CEN. You can, however, change the above timeouts. To do this, follow the procedure below:
