BO 4.2 SP4 - Web Intelligence Processing Server - Metrics in Monitoring Application

I am seeking confirmation / clarification on the following:

Within the "Danger Rule" definition of setting up a new Watch for my Web Intelligence Processing Server (in the Monitoring Application in the CMC), I can see the following (memory related) metrics available to choose from under my Web Intelligence Processing Server:

  • Memory high threshold count
  • Memory max threshold
  • RAM _MB_


Can anyone explain with 100% certainty what these metrics actually mean / correspond to?

As I haven't yet been able to find a clear explanation / definition for these in the administration related documents from SAP or blogs / forums online. Of particular interest to me is the "Memory high threshold count" and "Memory max threshold" metrics, as I do have the Memory Analysis feature enabled but I'm skeptical as to whether these are related at all to those two metrics or not ("Memory high threshold count" and "Memory max threshold")

The purpose of this is to ensure that we fully understand the drivers / thresholds behind our metrics (what they mean and relate to) so that we can know for sure that our alerts in place are alerting our administrators for the right thing.

Note: BI Platform Version is BO 4.2 SP4 Patch 3 (Server is Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 64-bit)

Cheers,
Kelvin

    Hi Kelvin,

    First of all, it is suggested to uncheck Enable Memory Analysis in BI 4.2. You can find the detailed explanation in the blog below:

    https://blogs.sap.com/2016/02/01/should-i-enable-memory-analysis-on-a-web-intelligence-processing-server/

    Secondly, regarding your question, the two metircs and the two settings are corresponding

    • Memory high threshold count --------- Memory Upper Threshold
    • Memory max threshold count --------- Memory Maximum Threshold

    If the memory used by this WIPS has reached Memory Upper Threshold once, the Memory high threshold count will add one.

    If the memory used by this WIPS has reached Memory Maximum Threshold once, the Memory max threshold count will add one.

    Regards,
    Ivan

      Not really relevant to the question (but thanks for your time). To be clear, what I'm after is clarification / confirmation on what the "Memory high threshold count" and "Memory max threshold" metrics actually represent (or relate to) e.g. a particular parameter definition or value in relation installed memory on the server ETC
