Monitoring SAP-systems

Hi there,

Our company is currently setting up a monitoring system (Nagios) for the IT-infrastructure.

I'm looking for a consistent check for our SAP systems.

On a Oracle database level, a tnsping <ORACLE_SID> should be sufficient, I believe.

For the app_server, a possibility is to check for the existence of SAP-workprocesses with a ps -ef | grep <SAP_SID>. However, this looks rather primitive.

Are there any SAP tools available to implement a more consistent check on app_server level ?

Thanks in advance,

    For Oracle, you can use R3trans. it tests connectivity but also interrogates database, which is a bit better.

    As for your SAp workprocesses, your monitor tool can probably count the number of active processes, count the number of disp+Work, msg_server etc....

    Hi Eric,

    you can use dpmon to check the state of the workprocesses. For example, if they are in PRIV mode, new users won't be able to logon, although on OS level all processes are running fine ...

    For J2EE you would have to use jcmon to monitor your instance...
