Has anyone implemented an Interface monitoring dashboard?

I know SolMan can monitor PI interfaces.. but we're entering an environment that will have multiple middleware technologies (PI/PO, WebMethods, and HCI).

I'm considering creating some sort of interface dashboard where users(as well as IT) can access and check the health of their interfaces.

I'm thinking I can create 1 simple Method call for all interfaces to use. That would populate some Ztable and we'd put up some sort of UI5 frontend for reporting.

In the method call, I'd include fields such as:

Functional Area (e.g. FI, MM, SD)

Inbound/Outbound indicator

Interface Name

Start Date/timestamp

End Date/timestamp

Number of Total Records

Number of Errors

Maybe even have it interactive where the users can click to navigate to some sort of error-correction workbench or more detailed report.

I'm thinking i'd also have a separate config table to list these interfaces, run frequency, expected # of records(for some tolerance checks), expected total $ (for some tolerance checks).. maybe a few other things..

Has anyone done something like this and have any advice?

    You might have a look at SAP AIF presentations to get a few ideas

    (or buy/install AIF ;-) )

    • Well, it's funny you suggest that.. I'm using AIF for 4 or 5 inbound interfaces right now, but will be greatly increasing that in the near future.

      But, their interface error workbench leaves a lot to be desired. It's too busy for my taste. I'm looking to design a UI5 dashboard for easy viewing into interface status.
