ABAP_DD_DB_Exclude

Configure exceptions for the ABAP_DD_DB check

Description

AutoChangeDetectionIgnore

Description

AutoChangeDetectionIgnore is used to exclude parameters from System Change Auto Detection. If, for example, a parameter value changes regularly and this behaviour is well known, you may add the parameter to the exclude list. The parameter value is still updated in the Avantra Database, but no change record will be created. Since there are several change detection objects, you must prefix the list with a keyword to indicate the object type.

For SAP Systems currently only DBPARAM is supported. Wildcard * is supported to define multiple parameters, e.g. DBPARAM: *MEMORY*, CPU_COUNT

BcsOutboundWaitTimeExceptions

Configures exceptions for BcsOutboundWaitNumCrit and BcsOutboundWaitNumWarn for waiting business communication records which match client and send method

Description

If you want to use different wait times thresholds for certain outbound waiting records, you may use this parameter which follows the syntax:

<list of clients> or * for all | <list of send methods> or * for all | warning threshold in minutes | critical threshold in minutes`

Multiple clients and send methods of an exception are separated by comma (,). Please use the short name of the send method. Multiple exceptions are separated by semicolon (;). Spaces may exist at any place of the parameter string, since they will be ignored.

There is also a special value 0 for the warning and critical thresholds. 0 means that the corresponding threshold will not be verified. So if you set both to 0, you can exclude records completely from being verified. They are, however, still displayed in the result table.

Example 1. Examples: Exceptions
101,102|FAX|60|120 ; *|INT|20|40

For clients 101 and 102 send method FAX the warning/critical thresholds are changed to 60/120 minutes. For all clients and send method INT the warning/critical thresholds are changed to 20/40 minutes

900|FAX|0|0

In client 900 all waiting records for sent method FAX are completely ignored and will not contribute to the check result.

NumRangesUseObjectDef

Use the threshold of the object to monitor this number range and not the thresholds defined in NumRangesUsageWarn and NumRangesUsageCrit.

Each SAP Number Range may define a specific threshold. Those thresholds can have a different value. Avantra does not use those thresholds by default. Avantra uses the monitoring parameters NumRangesUsageWarn and NumRangesUsageCrit to define thresholds. If you want to use the threshold defined for the Number Range in your SAP System, use this monitoring parameter. Since the SAP System only provides one threshold, you need to specify if the check status is set to Critical or Warning when the threshold exceeds. The syntax is: <Object>:<CRITICAL|WARNING>. Multiple specifications are separated by a space or semicolon. You can use wildcard * in a specification.

Example 4. NumRangesUseObjectDef examples
Value Selection
AUFTRAG

For all number ranges AUFTRAG, the threshold defined on AUFTRAG number range is used. If the number range exhausts the threshold, the check reports WARNING.

RKE_BELEG:CRITICAL

For all number ranges RKE_BELEG, the threshold defined on RKE_BELEG number range is used. If the number range exhausts the threshold, the check reports CRITICAL.

Description

You can ignore spool requests which have a deletion date in the future. If the deletion date of the spool request is after the current date plus the number of days defined by SpoolReqIgnoreFutureDelDate, then the spool request is ignored and not reported in the check. The default value of 0 days ignores the deletion date. In other words, all spool requests with deletion date also very far in the future are reported.

Description

Defines whether the CCMS properties variant defined by XALVariantName will be activated automatically. If this parameter is set to 0, the Avantra properties variant is not activated automatically, so the settings may be written to an inactive variant and are not used by CCMS. If the parameter is set to 1, which is the default, XALVariantName is automatically activated and will stay active because any manual changes to the active variant using SAP transaction RZ21 will be overwritten periodically.
