The System Monitoring application in SAP Solution Manager provides an overview of the current status of technical systems, including their associated instances, databases and hosts.
System Monitoring is based on automated checks in regular time intervals in the four categories Availability, Performance, Exceptions, and Configuration. In each of these categories, several metrics and corresponding thresholds can be defined per managed object.
The configuration is based on a template concept. Pre-defined templates can be used as a starting point to derive own customer specific templates.
The System Monitoring application provides information about the current status according to the last measurement of each metric. In addition, alerts will be created and can be handled via the Alert Inbox in case thresholds are violated.
System Monitoring provides the following features:
- Status overview regarding technical system including instances, databases and hosts
- Visualization of metrics and events with their current rating and last reported values
- Drill down capabilities from status information on technical system to single metrics
- Visualize metrics and events including thresholds and current rating/value
- Jump-in capability into metric monitor to display historical metric values including interactive selection of the timeframe to be displayed
This application is now based on SAPUI5 technology. The user interface has been enhanced considerably compared to the previous version in SAP Solution Manager 7.1 and is now harmonized with the other monitoring functionalities.
- If you configure System Monitoring the first time, start by performing the sub-steps under step 2. These steps only have to be performed in the beginning or whenever changes to the settings configured in this section are required.
- If you want to maintain monitoring templates (e.g. adding or removing new metrics/alerts, changing thresholds etc.), you can start directly with step 4. To activate any changes, continue with steps 5 and 6 afterwards.
- If you want to activate monitoring of a system (or several systems) using already existing templates, start directly with step 5.
