Root Cause Analysis

Dear Sirs,

We are developing a Java Web application, based on NWDI components model, that will be deployed on SAP NW CE AS which is monitored by SAP Solution Manager Root Cause Analysis.

I have two questions and I will be very thankful if anybody can help me.

1. Are there any benefits monitoring a Java WebDynpro application with Root Cause Analysis tools than monitoring a regular Java Web application? Which?

2. Can Root Cause Analysis monitor the Software Components of our application?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Taciana

    Hi Taciana,

    answering your questions.

    Are there any benefits monitoring a Java WebDynpro application with Root Cause Analysis tools than monitoring a regular Java Web application? Which?

    There are multiple benefits when using RCA despite from monitoring:

    - You can use Wily Introscope for real time monitoring of SAP J2EE based applications

    - You have aggregated worklaod and exception data in the RCA workcenter

    - You have the possibility to "End-to-End Trace" your application to identify problem causing components

    For an overview and multiple demos, please refer to http://service.sap.com/diagnostics . There you can find Demos and Userguides for all the RCA applications.

    Can Root Cause Analysis monitor the Software Components of our application?

    If you are SAP J2EE based you can benefit from all the SAP standard delivered instrumentation.

    Hope this helps and best regards

    Michael

    • Hi Taciana,

      sorry for the dely in answering

      1. It seems that Root Cause Analysis focus is the monitoring of SAP Solutions. Is that right?

      Yes, but the tools used can be extended for other solutions/products as well (especially Introscope).

      2. I really would like to understand if RCA can be used to monitor our SAP Java Web app. If the answer is yes, do I have do modify our app to be monitored by RCA?

      The goal of RCA is not monitoring and alerting, but identifying the problem causing component/application. but nevertheless you can use Introscope to real-time monitor and trace J2EE based applications.

      3. I have found a presentation from SAP named "E2E Solution Operation" and there is an example that shows that the Workload Analysis can monitor SQL queries of SAP Enterprise Portal. Is it possible to monitor the SQL queries of our SAP Java Web app?

      Yes, defintely, because we instrumented the JDBC infrastructure in the standard.

      Best regards

      Michael
