Making a List and Checking it Twice

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Dec 23, 2015 12:50:23 PM

IT'S THE HOLIDAYS:

The holiday season is a great time to spend relaxing and enjoying life with friends and family, but many times we feel more stressed trying to get our list of things to do DONE before we head out.  Just like that Out-of-Office email responder, it is something we as working professionals normally do before we take our break, and there are many other things I'd like to do before I check out of my office.  Therefore, I would make a list and check it twice, since it would be nice to not be interrupted on my vacation for things that I consider naughty to not have done.

SAP Performance Workload Monitoring

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Dec 15, 2015 9:04:16 PM

SAP performance management includes workload monitoring on top of resource utilization.  As simple as workload monitoring sounds, today still not many solutions exist for customers to easily monitor the performance of transactions, reports, batch, RFC workloads.

Visit our webinar series Mastering SAP Monitoring - Workload Monitoring for an in-depth discussion about what workloads are and how best to monitor them: Solve the SAP Workload Monitoring Challenge.

SAP Solution Manager has IT Performance Report, and CCMS has ST03 workload analysis with EarlyWatch transaction reports.  However, these are historical reports, not monitors that can alert when their performance degrades.

If you have no tools but CCMS, here is a tip on setting up Transaction SLA which has been there since R/3 4.6C, whereby only dialog transactions can be configured to report response times in RZ20 with yellow and red thresholds.  However, historical performance values are not easily charted for analysis, and you would likely need to branch off to ST03.  Nevertheless, use this setup if you want to see how it works as you will need to maintain a table ALTRAMONI.  

There are some better alternatives that will monitor most workload types such as dialog transactions, batch jobs, BI reports, HTTP/S transactions, RFC, etc. and can filter by terminal, client, user, app server.

Have you gotten much out of the SAP Earlywatch reports lately or has it taken a lot of time to maintain all the Solution Manager tools and plugins for little value?
