Technical monitoring - monitor external scripts

Hi all,

We are starting to use the technical monitoring work center to monitor all our SAP systems. But now we also want to use this work center to monitor external scripts for non-SAP programs. The outputs of our scripts are true/false or have numeric values. Does anyone has experience setting this up in solution manager? Could anyone recommend a good manual to follow?

Kind regards,

    Hi Kenny,

    You can refer the below wikis for the same.

    nonSAPMon_home - Technical Operations - SCN Wiki

    nonSAPMon_how-to guides - Technical Operations - SCN Wiki

    And in order to monitor external script you can use the Process monitoring option.

    In CCMS monitoring using sapccms agents you can do a process monitoring.

    451166 - SAPOSCOL and CCMS agents: Monitoring processes

    You can take references from above oss note.

    Hello Kenny,

    do you need to monitor the scripts on OS level as OS processes or do you need to monitor the outputs of the scripts?

    • I just want to monitor output of scripts, stored as files on a certain location on a server.

      Based on the output, I want to know more about:

      - monitoring certain words in the title of the output file

      f.e. error = red alert ; ok = green alert

      - monitoring (recurrences of) words like (error) within the content of a file

      f.e. error > 10 = red alert ; error > 5 = yellow alert ; no error = green alert

      - or monitoring the number of output files within a time range

      f.e. 10 files / hour = red alert ; 2files / hour = yellow alert ; 0files/hour = green alert
