SAP NetWeaver Administrator Feature: Java System Reports Give Your SAP Java System a Check Up! NetWeaver Administrator 2004 and 2004s give you answers about the health of your AS Java system with Java System Reports (JSR) in the monitoring area. Have you seen and used it? image Entry Point Java System Reports is a problem detection and analysis tool that you can use for the following purposes:

  • Monitoring the J2EE Engine cluster and SAP Java applications over a period of time.
  • Tracking the performance and resource consumption of one or all instances and cluster nodes of a particular Java system.
  • Detecting and analyzing the causes of problems if a J2EE Engine is performing poorly.
  • Making informed tuning decisions for productive use with the J2EE Engine.

You can compare and contrast Java reports using graphical charts or tables that display capacity planning, resource consumption, or error statistics, and so on. Benefit: State data from the J2EE Engine and performance data from the SAP Java applications is presented in clearly structured, preconfigured, and customizable charts and reports: Chart Combines several performance monitors and/or JARM monitors in a single graphical display to visualize correlations. The values of the monitors are used to track the performance in particular problem areas in the system, such as requests, average response time, and so on. image Pick your charts Do you need client-specific charts? Just create your own chart! When you create a chart, you group together various monitors. Ensure that you only combine appropriate data in one chart. Remember that you can have several charts in a report. You can create a chart from scratch, or based on an existing predefined or custom chart. You cannot change the predefined charts. To create a chart based on predefined one, edit it and save the modified predefined chart with a new name. Changes become available only for the currently selected system for all users who work with Java System Reports. A key report to start with is the Monitor Browser, where all available monitors is listed. Just go on and explore what monitoring content is provided there. This is also the place from which you configure the monitors. Hint: If a monitor type has a gray icon, it has the following two meanings:

  1. Indicates a non-performance monitor, an information text like license term.
  2. Shows that the monitor is not active by default. You can activate it.

You have to check the particular performance monitor and switch the data view on. To do this, go to the Reports tab and choose Open Customization => Close Customization appears. In the Report field, select: Monitor Browser. image Activate needed data Select the desired monitor type and change the details in configuration area to Data Collection. Check the Enabled indicator and save. image Add new data Report Combines several charts that monitor related problem areas in the system. For example, the predefined Resource Consumption report comprises the Memory Consumption and the Threads charts. image Select a predefined or custom report You can create a report from scratch, or based on an existing predefined or custom report.Another option is to set a Default Report that is displayed each time you start Java System Reports. You can also export your reports or charts to a Microsoft Excel sheet and print it out. That´s it! image Export your report So, the Java System Reports can be as flexible as you need to be in your business, and provide you with the best overview of your Java systems at any time! Could you already benefit from this feature? Is it easy for you to use? What are the really useful benefits? What features would you like to have? We are looking forward to get your feedback!

      No, there are no restrictions using Java System Reports in production system.
      If you want to use not only the default activated metrics , but others, just take care that too many aditional activated metrics can have some performance overhead.

      Charts are rendered in the IGS server. You should have it in the default installation. It seems that in your case it is either missconfigured or missing.
      If the IGS server is installed you should see it as a process/service. If it is stopped – start it.
      If the IGS server is not installed, you can take it from SAP service marketplace.
      If the IGS is installed and is working and you still have the same problem, check its configuration in webdynpro:
      Start offlinecfgeditor and go to Configurations\ webdynpro\\tc~wd~dispwda\Propertyshteet default  and check the IGSUrl property. It should contain working URL.
      Hope that will help.
