Monitor SAP DB


I would like to monitor the satelite systems from SOLMAN (Tcode RZ20) and have the following question.

In one Solution Manager I have the following structure:

SAP CCMS Monitor Templates --> Database --> MaxDB

In my Solution Manager I have only SAP CCMS Monitor Templates --> Database

How can the monitor "MaxDB" can be activated?

Thank you very much!

    Hello Thom,

    To be able to monitor the database on your Solution Manager system:

    -> Please check if the database client software installed on the

    application server. See notes:

    822239 FAQ: MaxDB Interfaces

    649814 Updating MaxDB/ liveCache client software

    -> What is the version of the database? What is the SAP Basis SP on

    your Solution Manager system & what is the SAP kernel version

    your Solution Manager system?

    -> If the system is NOT running with MAXDB, you need MAXDB database-dependent part of the SAP kernel, which is known as the DBSL installed on the application server.

    SAP notes :

    325402 dbadaslib/dbsdbslib: How do I apply a patch?

    822239 FAQ: MaxDB Interfaces

    After that the application server need to be restarted.

    -> See in the SAP note 588515 the section 3.

    Call transaction DB59, Select "Integrate database" & create the database

    connection, for example, TEST < You could name it MAXDB_<SID> to have

    unique connection name>. And follow the further instructions.

    Please run the 'Connection test' after that & review the log.

    After the database connection was created in /ndb59 you could double click

    on the created connection TEST .

    Or /ndb59 -> select connection -> click database assistant bottom =>

    it brings you to the database assistant (DB50/DB50N).

    And in the database assistant you could click on Alert Monitor and activate

    the database MTE tree.

    You could run the /ndb50n transaction & specify the created in the /ndb59 database connection TEST and execute to monitor the MAXDB database on your system.

    -> Please review the SAP note:

    431508 SAP WebAS - using DB13C or DB13 for SAP DB systems

    Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina

    • Hi Thom,

      when you integrate a remote database in transaction DB59 and activate the Alert Monitoring there (mark the checkbox on the integration screen), the Alert Monitor tree should be created automatically. If you start then the Assistant from DB59, you will also have an Alert Monitor entry in the tree of DB50.

      If this is not the case on your system, you should open a message, that SAP support can logon to your system to check what's going wrong.

      Best regards,

    Hello Thom,

    If you want to see monitoring items from the satellite systems within transaction RZ20 of the Solution Manager system you have to create a monitor first. Default SAP only delivers monitors for the current system. So in the monitor "SAP CCMS Monitor Templates" you will only find data for the Solution Manager system.

    Create a monitor is possible with the following steps:

    1. Start RZ20

    2. Extras -> Activate Maintenance function

    3. Create Monitor Set

    4. Create Monitor

    5. Select Items for the monitor or create rule based monitor.

    With regards,

    Michel Bal.
