SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 Monitoring Configuration – Part(3)

This is the continuation of my previous blogs on monitoring application in BusinessObjects 4.0.

SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 Monitoring Configuration – Part(1)

SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 Monitoring Configuration – Part(2)

So far we setup monitoring application, probes and metrics analysis, creation of watches and finally the alert configuration. In this blog we are going to see the monitoring database configuration.The real-time monitoring process goes as below

    

  1. Go to Monitoring > Probes

  2. Select one of the probes you scheduled earlier, for instance CMS Logon Logoff

  /wp-content/uploads/2013/06/2_235709.jpg

    3. From the bottom right graph, select the time window during which the probe has been running

If required we can use the time slider to select a different time window and zoom in and out. Now it’s time to analyze the captured monitoring data over a period of time. As a prerequisite for this we need to enable the monitoring database and set its properties according to the requirement.

To Configuring Monitoring database

1. Go to CMC > Applications > Monitoring Application > Properties

2. Enable Monitoring Application option has to be enabled and choose the trending database option

For monitoring database selection we have two options. We can either select the default Derby database or we can use our existing auditing database itself to hold the monitoring tables.

Default Derby database selection

Default Audit database selection

Once the monitoring database is enables we need to create Monitoring Universe and set of reports to do the historical reporting on monitoring. Let us see those activities in the upcoming blog. Hope this is interesting.

      Does using the Audit database for the trending data work with SQL Server 2012?  I'm having trouble getting it changed over.  I'm wondering if it could be the SQL Server version.

      Hi John,

      When I try to go to that link I get the following message: Document is not released.  I get the same thing if I search for the SAP Note number on the Support Site.

      I was able to get it to work.  I think it was a combination of things in the odbc.sbo file.

      I will check out the blog post anyway.

      Hi John,

      For some reason that note wasn't published but I have fixed that.

      And your right, it has to do with the SBO configuration for SQL Server

      Cheers
