How to monitor Solman-productive?

Hi experts,

we would like to use technical monitor of solution manager.

And I know, I can also monitor the own instance therein and there is also the possibility of self-monitoring.

My question now is, how do you ensure that Solution Manager is running?

Do you use a third-party tool for this (e.g. nagios?

Thank you

    Hello Christian,

    Easy one. The answer is YES coz no system can trigger an alert when the system itself is down.

    For this monitoring, you must go with an third party tool and nagios is a good option.

    It can be monitored if the system is available:

    The Availability monitor context is stored in the CCMS monitoring
    segments which belongs to the central monitoring system and because of
    this on the central system only the local auto-reaction methods can be
    used for the monitoring nodes which are located in the CCMS monitor
    segment of the central system.

    Please configure a correct local auto-reaction method (copy the
    central auto-reaction method and select "Periodically in dialog process"
    in the 'Control' tab and "Auto-reaction" in the 'Release' tab) and
    assign the auto-reaction method to the Availability monitoring nodes
    by using the transaction RZ20.

    -> Select relevant node
    -> Properties
    -> Go to
    -> Method assignment to MTE class
    -> Change

    can not use the central auto-reaction methods for monitoring nodes
    which belongs to the central system, like the CCMSPING availability
    monitoring nodes. For these nodes the local auto-reaction method should
    be used and for the local auto-reaction method the configuration always
    needs to be done in client 000, as described in note #176492.

    Please have a look at in SAP notes:
    #1410278 - Availability monitoring for instances and systems

    you can also use CCMS for this, but little lengthy process

    1. you need to connect your SOLMAN system to other system

    2. create an auto-reaction method and

    3. Assign it to ERP ABAP Application Server>>. R3 basis system

    when ever the system goes down, it will trigger an email.
