    SXMB_MONI helps you to find any error in the xi steps. But it will not tell you if you have any errors on the adapters. It runs on abap stack

    So for checking any errors on the adapters and the errors for communicaiton channels we need to go with RWB. It runs on Java Stack

    Hi Rambabu,

    SXMB_MONI is just for Message monitoring and via runtime workbench you can do many more things like performance monitoring,component monitoring,alert configuration, also Runtime workbench is web based application and sxmb_moni runs at abap stack.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    sxmb_moni-->

    In Sxmb_moni we can monitor the messages in Integration engine which shows the pipeline steps responsible to process the message. We can monitor BPE also in sxmb_moni.

    RWB-->

    Where is in runtime workbench we can monitor adapter engine, integration engine but we are not able to see pipeline steps and xml message.

    It can display messages on Adapter Framework (Java Stack). It has various options to pin point errors like Message Monitoring for Message Errors, Component Monitoring for errors at individual components (CC), End to End Monitoring for particular process instance errors, which narrows down on errors during message flow.

    Also we can monitor all the messages and systems. We can restrict particular user to monitor only a few messages.

    To be more elaborate take an exampleof File-XI-File scenario.

    If we are picking up a file and perform Message Mapping and at the reciever file adapter we are using Content Conversion.Some how if we have done some mistakes in Content Conversion and your Message mapping is fine then you cannot find it out through SXMB_MONI.You will have to go for RWB for this case.

    SXMB_MONI :

    It displays only messages on Integration Engine & BPE (ABAP Stack). It simply shows if there is error in the Xi pipeline but not in adapters and if message is delivered or not.

    RWB :

    It can display messages on Adapter Framework (Java Stack). It has various options to pin point errors like Message Monitoring for Message Errors, Component Monitoring for errors at individual components (CC), End to End Monitoring for particular process instance errors, which narrows down on errors during message flow.

    Also we can monitor all the messages and systems. We can restrict particular user to monitor only a few messages.

    Hope this serves your doubt.

    Look at the Nine Links on RWB Page

    1) Component Monitoring

    2) Message Monitoring

    3) End to End Monitoing

    4) Performance Monitoring

    5) Configuration

    6) Alert Configuration

    7)Alet Inbox

    8)Cache Monitoring.

    Out of these ony Message monitoring is provided in SXMB_MONI, rest all the activities can be easily done form RWB.

    It is very usefull part of XI.

    Hi,

    In RWB, u can monitor message and component

    monitoring.

    u can test u r interface by using integration engine test.

    where as sxmb_moni is a gui screen, which provide

    complete end to end informations with pipe line steps

    and provide detailed trace.

    warm regards

    mahesh.

    HI,

    Through runtime work bench we can monitor different type of monitoring like Component Monitoring, Message Monitoring, End to End Monitoring, Alter Config etc. Through runtime work bench we can't monitor HTTP adapter through SICF transaction we can monitor. Through this window we can get adapter level errors we can't get xml paylod errors and we can't restart error process.

    Through SXMB_MONI we can restart error process and meanwhile we can check payload level errors meanwhile we can see complete level errors in this window.

    Hi,

    Messages can be monitored in XI 3.0 in two different ways:-

    1. Integration Server using transaction: SXMB_MONI via SAPGUI

    �� All the inbound and outbound XML messages with various statuses can be monitored

    2. Runtime Workbench (RWB) via browser

    �� Messages can be monitored at the Integration Server level and also at the Adapter Engine level

    �� Messages can also be monitored via the payload base search using the TREX Engine Indexing functionality

    �� The RWB provides other monitoring features, such as Component Monitoring, End-to-End Monitoring, Performance Monitoring, and alerts via the Alert Framework, etc.

    Regards,

    Chandra

    Hi,

    SXMB_MONI runs on ABAP stack & RWB runs on java stack.

    So using RWB you can check the status of all components which are developed in Java. Also in SXMB_MONI we can monitor the messages in the Business Prcoess Engine (BPE) in which your BPM's are executed. From RWB --> Message Monitoring you will be able to see the staus of the message but you will not be able to trace out the entire flow of the message as well as the cause of the error.
