    Hi  Annapureddy Kasi viswanath,

    I thinks this information clear your point of veiw:

    Synchronous messages (Best Effort) will only be persisted if an error occurs during processing or if the parameter LOGGING_SYNC (ABAP only) is set. Setting LOGGING_SYNC is not recommended to reduce processing overhead. 

    Use the configuration parameter LOGGING or LOGGING_SYNC (category RUNTIME to activateLOGGING of asynchronous or synchronous messages locally for the whole Integration Engine. This means that all service calls of all pipelines of this Integration Engine are logged.

    If you increase this level, you will get minute details. 0 is default level.

    Please check following for details:

    Integration Engine - What's New in SAP NetWeaver 7.3 (Release Notes) - SAP Library

    Integration Engine and Queue Configuration on ABAP systems for AEX scenarios

    With the parameter LOGGING_SYNC the logging of synchronous messages for all pipelines of an Integration Engine can be activated (which improves error analysis and tracing)

    0 – deactivated

    1 – activated

      If your Msg is Sync message, by default it will not be logged (deactivated) in sxmb_moni...inorder to enable logging of sync msg you need to Activate this parameter in sxmb_adm

      In some cases if the data is highly confidential one (in Prod), you can use this feature to disable logging. But in Dev/ QA we generally Activate it inorder to have better trace/tracking/debugging  of the sync messages

      hope it helps

    Logging_Sync is required to log sync messages. If you have synchronous interface and if you want to see the request and response in monitoring (MONI) then you need to change the value of parameter to 1.

    refer the below blog

    XI: I cannot see some of my messages in the SXMB_MONI
