Values for sap_idoc_data table in Analytics

Yann.Buccellato

Good morning,

I want to make sure how a value is expressed in sap_idoc_data table after having installed the AppDynamics monitoring solution for SAP 4Hana.

Multiple fields are present. One in particular is having me confused:

Is the field PROCESSING_TIME expressed in seconds or in milliseconds?
How can I understand what the PROCESSING_TIME corresponds to (is this time for an IDOC to be read by SAP before being sent outbound? or does it have another particular meaning?).

Kind regards

Hello @Yann.Buccellato,

Please check out these AppD Docs pages:

For the longer doc, it helps to search for "processing" so it finds the section on processing time

Good morning Ryan,

for the first link doc you passed to me this is the description of the processing time:

I must say it doesn't say anything if value is expressed in Seconds or Milliseconds.

In the second link the processing time I'm founding is the following and it's about the pre-build metric which was clear to me that was expressed in seconds:

My question was the following:

  • I'm in the analytics section
  • I'm investigating the sap_idoc_table
  • I double click one single row
  • I see a field called PROCESSING_TIME = 0011123 like the following
    YannBuccellato_2-1698046075678.png

    How can I know in what measure this is expressed?
    (from what piece of documentation? or from where in the product?)

    In AppD I went into the default dashboard provided for the Idoc and I double clicked on table with the title "Idoc Errors". There it seems we have the same field but mapped as follow:

    YannBuccellato_3-1698047489701.png

    Am I correct to assume that this field is equal to the one called "PROCESSING_TIME" seen in the analytics engine ?
    If so, I'm wondering how comes that here I can see it mapped and explicitly declared and in the analytics I can only see the value as a string of text.


    Best regards

Hi @Yann.Buccellato,

Let me share this with the Docs team and see if we can get this cleared up!

Hi @Yann.Buccellato,

I heard back from the Docs team. 

The field is formatted in SAP-specific type TIMS and the value is presented in HH:MI:SS format. The documentation pages will be updated after the upcoming 23.11.0 release to reflect this information.

Does this help?
