Job Monitoring – Notes to be Implemented

Job Monitoring – Notes to be implemented

About Job Monitoring:

The Job Monitoring is used for the proactive monitoring of business critical jobs/ BW Process Chains to ensure the business is running smooth. The following technical objects can be monitored with Solution Manager 7.1 SP12 as well as in Solution Manager 7.2

  • ABAP Jobs
  • BW process Chains
  • Business Objects Jobs
  • Data Services Jobs
  • SMSE Jobs

The provision of configuring the Jobs/ Process Chains from Managed System as well as from external scheduler (Central Process Scheduler powered by Redwood) is available with SP12. The Job Monitoring is well integrated in the below entry points,

  • Technical Monitoring
  • Business Process Monitoring
  • Job Management


Feature Description
State-full Data Collectors This will avoid the grey alerts which would result in multiple/ duplicate email notifications. The intelligent scheduling algorithm written   in the Managed System would fetch the appropriate Job Instances and report to Solution Manager.
Elegant Monitoring UI The Monitoring UI which renders the active Job Monitored Objects with the list of Job Instances
Reporting UI The Status and Performance overview of a job can be visualized here which is populated from the BW Reporting store
Pattern based jobs Pattern based jobs can be configured in Job Monitoring (For example, SPA*, HR*)


Please make sure the notes that needs to be implemented in Solution Manager and Managed System are implemented. It’s MANDATORY to have all the notes.

Notes to be implemented in Solution Manager System,

Please choose any one of the note below based on your Solution Manager SP,

Solution Manager 7.1 Note
SP10 1909902
SP11 1972127
SP12 2038659
SP13 2122829
SP14 2273587

Here we go for the Solution Manager 7.2

Solution Manager 7.2 Note
SP01 2273529
SP03 2351141


Notes to be Implemented in Managed (satellite) system for ST-PI,

Please refer the Composite Note 2356484.

It is highly recommended to keep software component ST-PI at the latest support package level (see SAP Note 539977) in Managed System as well as in the Solution Manager system. New corrections can be provided for the latest two support package levels. The data collector changes provided in higher support packages are downward compatible e.g. a Solution Manager on ST 710 SP 12 can call a data collector in a managed system with ST-PI 2008_1_* SP 13.

ST-A/PI Version Note
ST-A/PI 01M and 01N 1581417
ST-A/PI 01P 1706837
ST-A/PI 01Q 1870459

Once all the aforementioned notes are implemented in Solution Manager System and Managed System, the issues in the data collection would be solved.
