CMC / Audit warnings
This monitor helps you to :
– Make sure that the CMC is available. As this monitor is doing the same actions as a user would do within his browser, you can increase the quality of the end user experience.
– Make sure there isn’t any warning in the CMC’s auditing dashboard. As this information is calculated by the CMC, the only way to check this is by doing it manually.
Pro.Monitor can do this for you.
This monitor helps you to :
– Make sure that there is not a lot of users connected at the same time. You can have an alert when the number of concurrent sessions in your system is breaking a threshold. Moreover, this monitor can provide metrics that will allow you to have a chart representing the user activity in your system.
– Make sure that a user isn’t logged in your system too many times.
This monitor helps you to :
– Make sure that nobody has configured a schedule to run too often. You can have an alert when a schedule is scheduled to run underneath a threshold (in minutes) you’ve configured.
– Make sure that you don’t have too many failed schedules in your system. This allows to make sure that you are not polluted with data you won’t need anymore.
– Send an alert every time a new failure is detected for a given schedule. Plus, this monitor will send metrics for you to have a chart with the execution states of a schedule.
Monitor to make sure that a metric (populated by business object himself) isn’t breaking a threshold you’ve configured here. For example, you can have an alert if the concurrent number of audit events in the queues is more than 100.
Monitor to make sure that some configuration properties of you server aren’t configured with values you don’t want. For example, you can have and alert every time the log level is set to something else than “low”.
With this monitor you will have an alert every time a server is in an unexpected state for more time than a threshold you’ve configured. For example, you can have an alert when a server is in the state “stopped” for more than one minute. As it’s completely customizable, you can make sure that nobody activates a server that you don’t want it to be working. This monitor can also send metrics concerning the state of the servers.

Notifies with an alarm when a batch input session is in error
Custom CCMS monitoring
The CCMS from SAP can contain thousands of metrics and alarm configurations. It has often been widely customized and one may want to keep using its configuration. This module has been designed to discover metrics and alarm configuration from the CCMS and to re-use it as is. Alarms generated by the CCMS can simply be detected and propagated, or CCMS configuration can be imported in Pro.Monitor and extended from there. Generic profiles can then be created and used on many different systems, from different departments or customers, while keeping a central configuration.

HANA nodes status are visible in the system and this monitor will watch for them. Send an alarm when a node is in an error state.
HANA replication LOG retention statistics
Log retention is important in the replication mechanism as it defines the capacity of the primary system to absorb and store changes waiting to be sent toward the secondary system. If logs are produced quicker than consumed for a long time, the replication will be compromised. This monitor will detect those situations and send alarms so you can react before replication stops.
HANA replication shipping statistics
Log shipping statistics is important in the replication mechanism as it defines the capacity of the primary system to send changes toward the secondary system. If logs are produced quicker than sent for a long time, the replication will be compromised. This monitor will detect those situations and send alarms so you can react before replication stops.
HANA replication status
System replication in HANA is a key component to be resilient against hardware failures or data corruption. This monitor will check that the replication system is in the expected state, during its nominal and transition phases (init,sync). It will also check for reconnects and fail overs and notifies as soon as those situations are detected.
To monitor table statistics is useful to detect potential performance or optimization problems. This monitor will check for the number of records and delta records as well as memory and disk usage of the column store tables.
Operations executed on the database occur within working threads. A long running thread can potentially indicate performance or optimization issues. This monitor will look for running threads and notify when a threads runs for too long.
If too many transactions are blocked for a long time, this could indicate performance or optimization problems. This monitor will watch blocked and uncommitted transactions.
Merge statistics will indicate the performance of the system in persisting changes. This monitor will check for the time taken by the merge operation applied on each table to detect any performance drop in the merge operations.

This monitor will look for the last cumulative, database and transaction dumps and send an alarm if some are too old. It will also detect and report dump errors.
Sybase database size
Disk space is a critical resource for any database, to persist database and log data. This monitor is meant to detect situations where allocated disk space is running low.
Deadlocks can significantly reduce the performance of the applications and the response time for the users. This is usually reflecting a blocking situation which can last a long time. It is therefore very important to detect deadlocks and act rapidly to resolve them if necessary.
Sybase error logs
Errors logs is useful to detect problems and investigate their causes. This monitor will watch error logs and can report any specific or repetitive message. You will be notified as soon as a problem starts happening.
Sybase file system
File system is a critical resource for any database to persist database and log data. This monitor is meant to detect situations where file systems used by the database is running out of space.
This monitor is meant to detect when the database is reaching its limits in processing capabilities. Such situations will impact response times for programs and users. It will check database CPU and threads usage.
An Oracle database consists of one or more logical storage units called tablespaces, which collectively store all of the database’s data. Each tablespace in an Oracle database consists of one or more files called datafiles, which are physical structures that conform to the operating system in which Oracle is running. This monitor is meant to watch datafiles utilization metrics.
This monitor can monitor backup status, dutation, size and elapsed time since last backup. You can quickly set general failed backup monitoring rules as well as custom rules for specific types of backups.
