    Hello Rajesh,

    please refer to https://service.sap.com/bpm --> Media Library --> Customer Information --> "Business Process & Interface Monitoring - Part 2" to get a comprehensiver overview about what is available out-of-the-box for BPMon in SolMan.

    BPMon in SolMan and BPM in Netweaver adress different target groups and can be seen a complementary functionalities.

    BPMon in SolMan is primarily targeting at the 2nd level application support and should ensure a stable and smooth processing of Business Processes from a technical as well as application perspective. The processes have a granularity down on transaction or background job level.

    Technical monitoring could be average response time of a transaction or a job cancellation.

    Application monitoirng is providing about the throughput numbers of documents like sales orders, deliveries or backlog figures indicating that there are erronuous documents or documents that need manual intervention. Looking at this last aspect it is clear that a second target group is key players on business unit side, like sales reposnibles, plant owners etc.

    On interface side you can monitor IDocs, qRFCs, Batch Input session for certain statuses, check if files arrived or do some XI messaged based alerting.

    BPM in Netweaver is a technical layer deeper and based especially on XI/PI. So this is an integration engine itself. When you look at the capabilities of XI/PI where you can split or correlate messages with ccBPM this is related to so called integration processes which could be a more detailed sub-process from what is looked at BPMon in SolMan. Other aspects that BPM in Netweaver is supports is Business Activity Monitoring BAM which cannot easily explained with a few sentences. But here the target groups with BAM are either real business end-users or C-level management for business efficiency analysis.

    Hope this answer could clarify a few things.

    • Rajesh,

      maybe this will be interesting for you. With the next release you will be able to set up Business Process Monitoring in a way to monitor entries in ANY database table using up to 3 selection criteria. Like saying, please give me the number of entries in the table A where field X = ..., field Y = ... and field Z = ...

      This allows you to cover business scenarios that are not yet covered by existing BPM functionality. For example: monitor the backlog of leasing documents in the Leasing solution in ERP. And many others.
