Overview

Advanced Monitoring is used for all use cases in System Monitoring where the template approach does not help, as the configuration differs largely between different Managed Objects.

For a specified Managed Object, Advanced Monitoring easily allows to:

  • Create several different Metric definitions
  • Simultaneously update different Metric values and thresholds
  • Test the Metrics by a direct call to the Data Provider on the Managed System
  • Create Incidents, Notifications, Third-Party Components, Auto Reactions for Alerting
  • Perform the Monitoring and Alerting Activation

Data are then automatically available in System Monitoring and Alerting Infrastructure.

The following use cases are already available:

  • Oracle Tablespace Monitoring
  • ABAP Transaction Monitoring
  • File System Monitoring
  • URL Availability Monitoring
  • Exception Monitoring (fully integrated in the Exception Management Configuration of Root Cause Analysis Workcenter):
    • ABAP Short Dumps
    • ABAP System Log
    • ABAP Update Errors
    • ABAP Application Log
    • Log File Monitoring (non-ABAP)

Starting Point

  • Transaction GPA_ADMIN (except for Exception Monitoring):
    • Type: Guided Procedure
    • Application Area: Advanced Monitoring Configuration
