SMD Installation and wily Introscope

Hello All,

My current solution manager environment is in support pack level : SOLMAN7.0 and Support pack 15 - 32 bit windows 2003 server.

We have already configured EWA for abap system, CTS+ for java and its running fine. Now we have a plan to do performance monitoring and EWA reports for java system.

I explored in SDN and understood that we need SMD for both(EWA and Performance monitoring - wily Introscope) since SMD will acts as a SDCCN for Java.

Now my questions are.

1. The above understanding of SMD is right? If not please correct me

2. I don't have SMD agent currently in the solution manager system, So I need to download and have to install using SAPInst?

3. DO i need to install SMD agent in satellite system as well? Because I need to monitor the Netweaver 2004 instances - portal.

4. I have Netweaver 2004s system as well - with default SMD agent , Is there any configuration needs to be done in satellite system SMD agent.

Atlast I have downloaded the ZIP file from sapnote for configuring EWA for non abap system and Looking for the links or sapnotes for Wily Introscope and SMD configuration.

Suggestions and comments are highly appreciable

Thanks and Regards

Vijay

    Hi,

    The EWA data for non ABAP system is collected by SMD Agent not SDCCN.

    Yes, you need to install SMD agent.

    Obviously yes, you need to install SMD Agents on your NW intances. Once you install SMD agent in your satellite system. You need to run Managed system wizard and Managing system wizard from SOLMAN http://<solmanhost>:<port>/smd

    [Diagnostics Agent Setup guide.|https://websmp110.sap-ag.de/~sapdownload/011000358700000324022008E/Diag_Agent_Setup_GuideSP15.pdf]

    The note 976054, you would have downloaded the guide from this. That should suffice.

    Hope this helps.

    Feel free to revert back.

    Iam not sure about the configuration setup but i can help you out with some useful documents.

    Check Wiki for various blog detailing functionalities of solman

      Thanks and its clear to me.

      In my scenario Soution manger system is in the patch level of SP15 and I need to nearly configure 40 managed system in this solution manager.

      SOlman is configured as local SLD and all the managed systems are in SMSY and I believe fetching of components from SMSY to SLD is also happening as of now.

      From your answer I understand that I need to install SMD agents in solution manager and also in Managed system and also I need to install Wily agent only in Solution manager and not in managed system. Just for the confirmation Am i right on my above sentence?

      Then my big question now is all the portal system(managed systems) running in the patch level of Netweaver 2004 SP 15. But from the note i understood that as a prerequisite the patch level should be 19 in the managed system then only its possible to generate EWA report.

      Is it so? Kindly advice me on the same as well.

      Regards

      Vijay

    1. Yes, your understanding is absolutely correct !

    2. SMD agents are made for both, the satellite and the solman system. And, the Willy Introscope agent is made for Solman system.

    You need to install SMD agent and Willy agent in Solman. you will get files and download locations and installation method with the help of notes and the guides, yes by SAPinst !

    service.sap.com/diagnostics

    3. Yes, SMD agents are need to installed in Satellite systems, if your case, then yes, in Portal system you have to install SMD agent and register it with Solman system. It will send the analysis data into Solman.

    4. With the new installations, SMD agent instance comes automatically with the installation, so is with yours.

    You need to register it with the Central 'Managing system' i.e. with the Solution Manager.

    Some of the following notes you might already have, one of them contains that zip file

    738676 - Service Data Download for Non-ABAP Components

    976054 - Availability of EWA for Non ABAP components

    1257308 - FAQ Using EarlyWatch Alert

    987835 - How to define Solutions in SMSY for Diagnostics

    You need to download the required guides from service.sap.com/diagnostics , for both, the 'Managed system' i.e. the Satellite system and for the 'Managing system' i.e. the Solman.
