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:
- SAP HANA Studio
- SAP HANA Cockpit from a Web browser (essentially SAP DBA Cockpit)
- SAP Management Console
- SAP Solution Manager technical monitoring
- SAP Landscape and Virtualization Manager (LVM)
