queues timing out


I am getting a SYSFAIL due to time limit being exceeded in my backend ECC System.

I have increased the time limit via SXMB_ADM to 600 seconds and have gone through the processes described on other blogs here to allow restarts of the messages and unlock the queues etc. BUT every time I unlock the queues they timeout again.

How can I check the HTTP settings that the queues are having problems with?

    Hello Ross,

    Iu2019ve seen the this issue many times in the past. Please try the following:


    Please check in SM59 -> HTTP type RFC connection :

    INTEGRATION_DIRECTORY_HMI -> "Special Options" tab,

    increase the time to 9999999.


    See the notes:

    #1060264 - PI Troubleshooting Guide 7.1

    #806546 - XI Troubleshooting Guide for XI 3.0/7.0/7.01

    Section "Timeouts in XI" -> u201CTimeout Calling the Adapter Framework or Calling an External Partner Using the HTTP Protocolu201D

    And then, set:

    The Instance Profile parameter, icm/server_port_(x) as below:


    If the problem persists, you can increase the PROCTIMEOUT parameter e.g. increase to 1200 and 1500

    Ensure you set this parameter on the XI system AND any other R/3 system that is involved in these scenarios. Also set it on the Web Dispatcher if you use one.

    You will find more information about the PROCTIMEOUT parameter in the note:

    #824554 - ICM and SAP Web Dispatcher Timeout Parameter.

    You can also try to set the PROCTIMEOUT to -1. It means no timeout!

    Then, try the scenario again. If it works then, try to find a value that is enough for the scenario.

    • Note:

    If Tcode SXMB_ADM -> Integration Engine Configuration

    you have configured the parameter: RUNTIME/HTTP_TIMEOUT

    this overwrites icm proctimeout.

    This should help you with this matter.
