Fast Search Infrastructure Indices Check Test

Fast search infrastructure searches for SAP business objects and joins between tables in business objects. The Fast search infrastructure module in SAP environments is mainly used to store and manage data. When a SAP TREX engine searches for data available in the Fast search infrastructure module, the index corresponding to the data is retrieved first. If the index is corrupted or not available, then the data corresponding to that index may not be retrieved as expected and the search may eventually fail. To avoid such search engine failures, it is necessary to maintain the accuracy of the indexes corresponding to the Fast search infrastructure module. This is where the Fast Search Infrastructure Indices Check test helps!

This test monitors the indexes of the Fast search infrastructure module and reports the total number of indexes corresponding to the Fast search infrastructure module, the indexes that are valid and the indexes that are corrupt.

Target of the test : A SAP TREX

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the SAP TREX server that is to be monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
  1. TEST PERIOD - How often should the test be executed
  2. Host – The host for which the test is to be configured.
  3. PORT - Specify the port at which the specified HOST listens. By default, this is 30001.
  4. TREX DIRECTORY - Specify the full path to the SAP TREX instance that is to be monitored for e.g., the location can be specified as D:\usr\sap\TRX\TRX01.
  5. TIMEOUT - Specify the duration (in seconds) beyond which this test should time out in the TIMEOUT text box. The default is 120 seconds.
  6. AUTOCORRECT INCONSISTENCIES - By default, this flag is set to No indicating that the corrupt indexes of the Fast Search Infrastructure Module are not deleted, by default. Set this flag to Yes to automatically delete the corrupt indexes.
  7. DETAILED DIAGNOSIS - To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

    The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

    • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
    • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.

Measures made by the test:

Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Corrupt indices:

Indicates the number of indexes that were corrupted.

Number

If the indexes are corrupted, then the indexes should be recreated in order to be accessed. Therefore, if too many indexes are corrupted, then the performance of the TREX server will be affected.

The detailed diagnosis of this measure lists the indexes that were corrupted.

Valid indices:

Indicates the number of indexes in the Fast Search Infrastructure module that passed the consistency check.

Number

A high value is desired for this measure.

Total indices:

Indicates the total number of indexes created for the data stored in the Fast Search Infrastructure module.

Number
