AGate Server Test

The AGateServerTest reports performance statistics pertaining to the AGate component of the Internet Transaction Server (ITS).

Target of the test : An AGate Component of ITS

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every ITS instance being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


Specify the host name of the server for which the test is to be configured.


This test extracts the performance metrics from the access.log file present in the {ITS_INSTALL_DIR}\6.20\{Directory corresponding to the ITS instance}\logs directory. Therefore, in the LogFilePath text box, provide the full path to the access.log file in the following format: {Instance Name}={Path to the log file}. For example, if the log file for an instance named ‘ADM’ is to be monitored, and ITS is installed in the C:\Program Files\SAP\ITS directory, then the LogFilePath specification should be as follows: ADM=c:\Progra~1\SAP\ITS\6.20\ADM\logs\access.log. To monitor the access.log files associated with multiple instances, provide the LogFilePath as a comma-separated list. For example, ADM=c:\Progra~1\SAP\ITS\6.20\ADM\logs\access.log, ITS1=c:\Progra~1\SAP\ITS\6.20\ITS1\logs\access.log.
