Using the configuration wizard to manage SIDs, Contexts and Parameters

Discovery of a SAP Solution Manager system retrieves all SAP systems defined in SAP Solution Manager and all CCMS Contexts defined under each SAP system. You can filter the list of discovered SAP systems and discovered CCMS Contexts, that is, suspend monitoring of SAP systems and CCMS Contexts and remove them from the tree, or resume monitoring, at any time.

Note

You can alternatively disable an individual CCMS Context or SAP system and then remove it from display, as described in Disabling and enabling data collection for an individual SID or CCMS Context. If you want to deactivate the collection of performance-type CCMS parameters under an individual CCMS Context but continue collecting non-performance CCMS parameters, or if you want to deactivate the collection of non-performance CCMS parameters and continue collecting only performance parameters, see Managing the collection of CCMS parameters.

To manage the monitoring of discovered SAP systems, CCMS Contexts, or Parameters

  1. From the PATROL Console work area, right-click an existing SAP Solution Manager system (SSM_SOLMAN), an existing SAP System (SSM_SID_CONT), or a Parameter.
  2. Select KM Commands > Data Collection > Configuration Wizard.
  3. For SIDS:
    1. The Manage SIDs dialog box is displayed. Transfer SIDs between the list of Active SIDs (that is, currently monitored SIDs) and the list of Inactive SIDs using the Move arrows.
    2. For newly discovered SIDs, select the Active SIDs or Inactive SIDs option depending on where you want them added.
    3. When you have finished moving SIDs between the two lists, click Save & Continue with selected SIDs and Apply. Inactive SIDs are removed from the tree.
  4. For Contexts:
    1. The Manage Contexts dialog box is displayed. Transfer Contexts between the list of Active Contexts (that is, currently monitored Contexts) and the list of Inactive Contexts using the Move arrows.
    2. For newly discovered Contexts, select the Active Contexts or Inactive Contexts option depending on where you want them to be added.
    3. When you have finished moving Contexts between the two lists, click Save & Continue with selected Contexts and Apply. Inactive Contexts are removed from the tree.
  5. For Parameters:
    1. The Manage Parameters dialog box is displayed. Transfer Parameters between the list of Active Parameters (that is, currently monitored Parameters) and the list of Inactive Parameters using the Move arrows.
    2. For newly discovered Parameters, select the Active Parameters or Inactive Parameters option depending on where you want them added.
    3. Select parameters from the list of Active Parameters, click Filter to add the parameters to the Filter View By: field.
    4. You can also use the Filter Grep Options [vtib] (optional). Grep options are provided for filtering. The options available are:
      • v - Reverse the output of the grep() function. All the lines in text that do not contain a match for regular-expression are displayed. This is similar to the Unix grep -v flag.
      • t - Ignore the meaning of special characters in regular-expression.
      • i - Ignore the case when searching for regular-expression matches.
      • b - Stop searching for regular-expression matches after the first regular expression match is found.
    5. When you have finished moving Parameters between the two lists, click Save & Exit and Apply. Inactive Parameters are removed from the tree.
