OS Process Monitoring within SAP Cloud Appliance Library

It is a common task to check the status of the SAP Systems provisioned on the the SAP Cloud Appliance solution instances. Usually it requires to connect to the Linux OS via SSH and to execute sapcontrol commands. Now you can get the status with just a few clicks.

The prerequisite is that your solution instances were deployed in a virtual network that won’t block the connection to SAP Cloud Appliance Library. Also note that this feature might not be available for some older solutions.

First make sure that your solution instance is Activated. If the connection from your instance to SAP Cloud Appliance Library is technically possible you will see the new SAP Systems tab in the Details view for your instance.

By default the OS processes monitoring is disabled not to create redundant Internet traffic, so next choose Enable. With this your solution instance will start pushing the monitoring data on every 5 minutes.

Scroll up and down to see the status of all SAP systems.

      Hello Stanimir,

      that's a great feature, thanks for sharing.

      Could you please explain how does it work behind the scenes? How the services are being monitored?

      Also, is this feature available only from the CAL or can we somehow use it also in Azure Portal?

      Hi Bartosz,

      Thanks  for your feedback.

      This feature is available only from SAP CAL. When the monitoring is enabled the SAP CAL agent takes care to collect the data from the SAP hostagent(s) and to send it to SAP CAL.

      Best regards,

      Hi Shyam,

      No, you can see only the list of OS processes and their statuses in SAP CAL.

      Best regards,
