Monitoring in Solution Manager - missing functionality or missing documentation? SM37 ST02 SM12 SM50

Dear experts,

During implementation of BPM Monitoring and System Monitoring I came across some requirements that can either not be fulfilled by Solution Manager, or I cannot find the relevant documentation:

  • SM37 – Job Log – alert if specific text (e.g. „everything ok“) is present in job log, independent of message class or message number (functionality as unix command „grep“ provides).
  • ST02 – Buffers – alert in case of high number of buffer swaps.
  • SM12 – Locks – alert in case locks are older than xx minutes, e.g. older than 1 day.
  • SM50 – Work Processes – alert in case a SPO or UPD or UP2 work process runs longer than xx minutes, e.g. longer than 1 hours.

Any tips or tricks or hints how to achieve this?

Many thanks,

    Peter - job logs can be configured to be monitored via BPM Job Monitoring, just have to select the correct type of monitor. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of Alert Configuration there are a couple of scenarios for job log messages and contents.

    ST02 - can be monitored in Technical Monitoring at the technical Instance level, Under Performance -> Number of buffer swaps.

    SM50/work processes - can be monitored in TechMon at the technical instance level as well. Long running processes, update 1 response time, Update 2, several metrics for all. They can all be alerted on.

    SM12 - seems to be a miss on SAP's part. There are a lot of threads on using CCMS to monitor this, but nothing that is current with Tech or BPMon. A custom alert could probably be built, I'm looking into this currently myself. Not sure how much time I'm going to waste on it though.
