Use

With the SCM Queue Manager you can check outbound queues in your own or in a connected system and react to errors if necessary. The advantage with regards to the qRFC Monitor lies in a significantly higher degree of user friendliness.

Procedure

Start the SCM Queue Manager

  1. Call up the SCM Queue Manager via the area menu Tools ® APO Administration ® Integration ® Monitor ® SCM Queue Manager or using the transaction /SAPAPO/CQ (program /SAPAPO/RCIFQUEUECTRL).
  2. You reach the screen SCM Queue Manager.
  3. In the screen section Systems you specify in which systems the check is to take place. When you do not make an entry under Systems your own system and all systems entered in the table /SAPAPO/SYSDIR will be selected as default.
  4. If you set the indicator Expand Nodes, all selected systems will be directly analyzed and will be displayed expanded on the subsequent results screen.
  5. If you set the indicator Only Display Locked Queues, only queues that are blocked or contain errors will be displayed on the results screen.

Note

If you have not set the Expand Nodes indicator, a system will only be analyzed when you choose it in the results screen. This can lead to a significant improvement in the initialization of the results screen.

If you set the indicator Only Display Locked Queues, this leads to a significant increase in performance on the following results screen.

  1. In the Object Type group you can choose the object types that are to be checked. You can choose the following object types:

Evaluating the Results of the SCM Queue Manager

The results screen consists of a navigation window with a tree structure (left window) and a main window. In the tree structure, the systems that have been checked are represented as root nodes and the individual object types as branches.

  1. Expand the root nodes by clicking on the triangle by the name of the node.
  2. The object types of the selected system are displayed. A symbol tells you the queue status of the individual objects:

Depending on whether you have marked a system, an object or an entry for a queue with errors in the main window, calling up the qRFC monitor leads to different listings of queues with errors.

Unqualified queue name. For example, "CF* (for the system marked)

Partially qualified queue name. For example, "CFEP*" (for the object type marked)

Fully qualified queue name. For example, "CFEP4711" (for a marked entry in the main window)

 

The queues with errors that you have selected are displayed in the main window (depending on the selection of all queues per system or per object type). For this, the following information is shown:

By double-clicking on the destination column you open the transaction SM59. Here, you can edit the settings for the connection to the relevant system.
