  • 4. Proactive Monitoring vs. Reactive Monitoring Why Solution Monitoring? Monitoring should be done to detect the deficiencies as early as possible in order to ensure the correctness and security of the business processes raise the availability and performance of the system. Proactive Monitoring Proactive Monitoring tries to avoid critical situations before the occur. E.g.: Maintenance of performance alert thresholds E.g.: Trend analysis (e.g. performance values and hardware capacity) -> To be reminded of the necessary monitoring tasks, interactive work lists are needed (Alert Graphic) Reactive Monitoring Reactive Monitoring tries to notify the administrators in critical situations as soon as possible E.g.: error handling procedures and escalation paths -> Via automatic notification mechanisms© SAP AG 2005, SolMan_SolutionMonitoring.ppt / 4
  • 5. Automatic Monitoring vs. Expert Monitoring Automatic Monitoring Automatic Monitoring is using predefined Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in order to notice deviations as early as possible. E.g.: Autoreaction methods with CCMS as infrastructure E.g.: KPI monitoring and reporting with ratings in case of problems -> Definition of Key Performance Indicators and their thresholds needed Manual Expert Monitoring Expert Monitoring is manual work. Identify issues that are not captured via alert monitoring. Expert Monitors should give hints for resolution of identified problems or are the tools for resolution of problems. E.g.: Link to expert monitors in satellite systems Identify problems that are based on long-running trends. -> Administrators with expert knowledge in different areas needed© SAP AG 2005, SolMan_SolutionMonitoring.ppt / 5

  • 9. Solutions in SAP Solution ManagerSolutions are groups of related systems. The design of solution landscapescan be related to the SAP Solution Manager functionality you want to use orto user groups which should have access, e.g. landscapes for reporting (EarlyWatch Alert, SL, Service and Availability Reporting), joint administration and real-time monitoring (e.g. System Monitoring and Central System Administration) management of core business processes and related components (BPM) so that customers of an outsourcer have access to their business process related dataIndividual and flexible assignment of systems within solutions Solution 1 Solution 2 Solution 3 (EWA) (BPM Customer 1) (BPM Customer2) CRM ERP ERP CRM ERP BI BI BI SCM R/3 © SAP AG 2005, SolMan_SolutionMonitoring.ppt / 9

  • 27. Why Business Process Management An overall concept for Business Process Management gets more and more important Complex business processes that are distributed across various systems and software components in a complex solution landscape Different and various application error logs on different software components have to be monitored for a distributed business process The need of a particular system component for a business process is not necessarily obvious and must be documented Data transfer between different systems using various interface techniques must be monitored© SAP AG 2005, SolMan_SolutionMonitoring.ppt / 27
