You can use the Consistency Check of the CCMS Monitoring Infrastructure to check the configuration and runtime of the CCMS monitoring infrastructure, display errors, and automatically correct these errors.
This procedure describes how you can call the consistency check and what options you have to adjust the details of the check to your needs.
Since the consistency check is useful both for searching for the cause of a problem that has occurred and a routine function check, there are two ways in which you can call the check:
You can call and run the check directly in dialog; the result is displayed immediately after the check is performed. This type of call is particularly useful if errors have occurred in the context of the CCMS monitoring infrastructure and you want to determine the cause.
You can schedule the check as a job and the result is sent to you as an e-mail. This is particularly useful if you schedule the specified job periodically to obtain a summary of the configuration and runtime of the monitoring infrastructure every week, for example.
To perform a consistency check of your central monitoring, proceed as follows:
Start transaction RZ50.
If you want to restrict the consistency check to specific topics, enter an existing Check Area, create a new check area by choosing . More information: Restricting the CCMS Consistency Check to Specific Topics.
If you also want to check specific nodes for their method assignments, threshold values, and currentness, specify and existing MTE Customizing Check Group, or create a new check group by choosing . More information: Checking and Distributing Settings for Selected MTEs and Monitors.
Specify which monitored systems are to be checked. There are a large number of different selection options available here:
You can select systems directly using their system ID by choosing the radio button From System List (ALSYSTEMS), and specifying the desired system IDs in the relevant input fields.
You can select systems using the system group to which they belong by selecting the radio button From System Group, and specifying the desired groups in the relevant input fields. More information about system groups: System Groups in the Alert Monitor.
You can select systems using their additional properties, such as the release or the database type in use, by selecting the radio button Other Selection Criteria, and specifying the desired properties in the relevant input fields.
If you do not make any specifications about the monitored systems that are to be checked, all systems that are registered with the CCMS monitoring infrastructure as monitored systems are checked (these systems are entered in the table ALSYSTEMS). You can display these systems in transaction RZ21 by selecting the radio button System Overview in the Topology group box, and choosing the button (more information: Monitoring Systems in the Topology Display).
You can have the results of the check sent to you as an e-mail. To do this, select the Send Result by E-Mail? indicator. More information: Displaying the Results of the CCMS Consistency Check.
Sending the check results is particularly useful in connection with executing the check in the background (menu. In this way, you can schedule the configuration check as a job to be executed regularly, and are automatically informed about the result of the check by e-mail.
To run the check now, choose the button.
