SAP BOBJ Performance Best Practice

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Sep 30, 2015 11:39:54 AM


 Just because it's analytical and not transactional doesn't mean it's not a core part of service delivery.

As a leading Business Intelligence and analytic platform SAP BusinesObjects (BOBJ or BO) needs to deliver business performance metrics to business users to help them make informed decisions that directly impacts revenue.  So if BO is slow or unavailable, then "ITOBjects" (pun intended) failed at delivering that service to the business.  It is core and it is mission-critical, therefore it must perform.

See our updated content BusinessObjects Monitoring is Tricky but These Resources Should Help

One of our customers recently deployed SAP BW on HANA with SAP BusinessObjects 4.1 as the reporting front-end.  Both HANA and BO are new to them, so they were unsure how to best tackle the performance management of the environment.  We proceeded based on our SAP Performance Management Best Practices and a summary of our approach for BO is described in this publication, including the 3 major areas of performance assurance: Sizing/Design, Testing/Optimization, and Monitoring/Management.  We were able to quickly identify key components, test scenarios, monitor and report key optimization recommendations.

HANA Monitoring Multi-tenancy

IT'S COMPLICATED:

Have you tried monitoring your HANA multi-tenant environment?  It's harder than it sounds.  In prior posts, we wrote about:

There are previously mentioned issues connecting the SAP HANA Administration Console to the tenant database because specific ports are required.  There's not much documentation about connecting to a tenant for monitoring.  Although most SAP Business Suite on HANA systems use DBACOCKPIT or Solution Manager (see our SAP Monitoring Tools Overview), it is typically connected to a single default tenant or automatically chosen during SAP installation.  

It took a little detective work, but we've unraveled the mystery on how to connect locally, remotely via hdbsql and HANA studio to each tenant.  Otherwise other monitoring tools can't be used, and we're left with tools like HANA Cockpit that only shows the first tenant as seen below (The indexserver on port 30003).
