IT Performance Reporting vs. Interactive Reporting: usage rights
A very interesting point I just found out by reading the help site of SAP:
Following the statement that E2E MAI is only available for customers with enterprise support and that IT Performance Reporting can be also used for standard support customers there can be a license problem for customers with standard support by activation of IT Performance Reporting.
With SAP Solution Manager 7.1, the new work centeris also available, which is no longer based on the Computing Center Management System (CCMS) as its monitoring infrastructure, but rather on the Monitoring & Alerting Infrastructure (MAI). This work center also has new reporting (see ). We recommend that you now only use the IT Performance Reporting in the System Monitoring work center if you have already set up central monitoring based on the CCMS and do not want to use the new MAI.
The system reports of interactive reporting are still available to you with SAP Solution Manager in IT Performance Reporting, even if the provision of the data is still based on the CCMS.
All the web templates/queries of IT Performance Reporting within Solution Manager 7.1 are part of work center Technical Monitoring and following E2E MAI.
Can customers with standard support activate the IT Performance Reporting within Solution Manager 7.1?
