Seamless connectivity to monitor SAP servers via mobile device is really revolutionary. I always used to dream about monitoring my system farm by seating at Miami beach.

Today I came across SAP AG’s android application ‘SAP System Monitoring’ on Google Play. I was happy like a child who got his x’mas gift from Santa. In description it says “With the SAP System Monitoring mobile app for Android, you can monitor availability, performance, and exceptions of important systems in the landscape anywhere and anytime. This app connects to the SAP Solution Manager application management solution and allows administrators to check alerts and monitor metrics right from their Android device.” I was in seventh heaven, and immediately downloaded the application.

After download, I understood that it requires SUP (Sybase Unwired Platform) to connect to solution manager….. and I landed back from my dream as I don’t have SUP in my landscape. Now I have to postpone my Miami trip till SUP gets implemented in my landscape  😉

One thing I didn’t understand is why this application need permission to read Phone Identity and records??

    Hello Vishal,

    Don’t worry, you will not have to postpone your Miami trip. 🙂
    SUP is not mandatory to run SAP System monitoring in mobile device outside your company’s network.

    Sure, your company use VPN Network, so you have just to install VPN Client in your mobile device, connect to VPN and configure mobile application in order to connect directly to NetWeaver Gateway.

    In order to do that, you configure your Backend as mentionned in administration Guide and setup mobile application as follow:
    – Select Gateway as Connection mode instead of Unwired Platform.
    – Server Name: IP of your NetWeaver Gateway

    – Port: port used for sicf services (8000 in my case)

    – User: your username in Backend.
    – Password: your password in Backend.

    – Service Name: TECHMON

    – Service URL: sap/opu/odata/AIGW/

    – Use HTTPS: OFF

    Hope that help you.

    Kind regards.
