What does the status FORWARDED mean in PI Monitoring in Solution Manager

In Solution Manager you find messages with the status FORWARDED. This status doesn't exist in the single systems on the PI domain. You want to know what it means.

As Solution Manager collects information from all components in the PI domain in the Central PI Message Monitor, the message status overview is displayed for entire PI domain and not only for one component (as is would be in the traditional distributed PI monitoring approach). But this means, if you count successful messages, they are counted in each component and as a sum you will receive the number of successfully counted messages (All successful messages in all components, even if a message was successful in 2 components). This is not the total number of messages in the PI domain, it could be more.

To avoid this discrepancy, the status FORWARDED was introduced, locally on SAP Solution Manager only. This status means, a message was successful on one PI component, it was passed to another PI Component, but it did not reach it's ultimate target and "passed" the PI domain successfully yet. In the single components of the decentralized traditional PI monitoring this distinction is not necessary as you don't have an overall overview over messages in other components, in Solution Manager this status was needed to mark a not finished but so far successful PI message.
