Netweaver on HANA Monitoring Setup Part 1 of 3 (Preparation)

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Jan 26, 2015 7:40:00 AM

I mentioned in the prior post (SAP Solution Manager Technical Monitoring) about the effort of installation, patching, and configuration before one can monitor and/or manage an SAP system using Solution Manager 7.1. In this 3-parts article, I'll share just a small (but lengthy) portion: SAP Netweaver on HANA Monitoring Setup, using an example from our lab which I had tasked one of our senior SAP Basis consultants to perform.

To put into context about the landscape, we had already installed Solution Manager 7.1 previously and upgraded to SPS12 on Windows/MSSQLServer. We also installed SAP BW 7.31 on HANA SPS07 on a mini-basis trial, which comprises of a HANA database (HDB) running on SUSE Linux 11.3, and an SAP Netweaver central instance (HNA) also running on another SUSE Linux 11.3 server.Solman_BWonHANA_MonitorView

SAP Solution Manager Technical Monitoring

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Jan 21, 2015 5:24:00 AM

Over the last week we've been busy updating our SAP Solution Manager 7.1 from SPS11 to SPS12. It doesn't sound like much but as usual, we found so many notes, preparations and post-processing to perform. It's a whole lot more than just running SUM (Software Update Manager), so it will have to be topic of discussion for another time.

Is Your SAP HANA Highly Available?

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Jan 13, 2015 8:37:00 AM

Pull out your SAP HANA Technical Operations Manual for the latest SPS09 release and you will find section 2.4 about Monitoring the SAP HANA Database, and section 2.9 discussing High Availability for SAP HANA at very shallow depth. After reading them, are you confident that your HANA setup is well monitored and highly available enough to go Production? If the answer is NO, then you've got some work to do before that in-memory investment can go live.

Let's start with Monitoring. Here are your choices from SAP:

  1. SAP HANA Studio
  2. SAP HANA Cockpit from a Web browser (essentially SAP DBA Cockpit)
  3. SAP Management Console
  4. SAP Solution Manager technical monitoring
  5. SAP Landscape and Virtualization Manager (LVM)

Thoughts on SAP Landscape Virtualization Management (LVM)

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Jan 5, 2015 11:15:00 AM

A few years ago, I was able to install and take test drive of SAP ACC (Adaptive Computing Controller) when it was version 1.0, and the idea was quite exciting for a Basis administrator to be able to control SAP on the virtualized environment. If you ever worked on high availability SAP systems, you would know it's quite complex to monitor, manage and control the resources and where they run on the underlying infrastructure. At the time, almost nobody used ACC except for a few customers who were working closely with hardware vendors such as IBM who co-innovated the product with SAP.
