The SAP architecture is complex and is composed of a number of disparate elements and multi-tiered applications. Each element must be performing optimally to ensure responsive, reliable service levels. Managing such a complex system is a very daunting task.
ManageEngine’s Applications Manager rectifies this problem by helping users identify the root cause of a problem, aiding in faster troubleshooting, making the process much simpler. Some of the benefits that you can gain from using the SAP monitor :
The SAP monitor allows you to optimally use SAP computing resources by monitoring the status of Background processing in SAP.
Monitor the values of the Enqueue service and measure the lock wait time to optimize the application.
Using the spool utilization metric the SAP monitoring system will measure the efficiency involved in queuing jobs and helps react quickly to alert messages.
Monitor key performance indicators of servers, databases, VMs and public cloud services such as Amazon EC2 and identify over utilized and underutilized resources and plan capacity accordingly.
The SAP monitor makes sure that these jobs can be run without interfering with routine work and troubleshoots the root cause with the generated trace from a single console.
This facility enables you to view the SAP system errors comprising of ABAP dumps, aborted Jobs, update errors and other syslog errors
When there are dependent modules running in different SAP systems, the RFC ( remote function call ) enables communication between them. Ascertain (transactional, queued) RFC failures due to system failure or communication error. View all RFC related T-codes on a single console to detect any possible errors. Proactively configure thresholds to receive alerts for states like SYSFAIL, CPICERR or INACTIVE and prevent delays in troubleshooting
The reporting facility in Applications Manager displays the most important monitoring data in the SAP monitoring console to identify potential problems early, and gives an overview of the load and performance of your system. The admin gets detailed information about the health, availability, CPU, memory and disk utilization parameters of the SAP server. Apart from this, detailed reports on the critical metrics like Enqueue requests, response time, Spool utilization rate, etc. can be retrieved as well.
Proactively monitor the performance of various components and resources in your SAP ERP landscape, like the SAP Business Intelligence (BI), SAP Customer Relationship Management (CRM), SAP Supply Chain Management (SCM), etc. Keep track of key metrics such as connection time, and attributes for performance, status and log.
