These applications allow you to monitor systems, databases and operating systems for the whole solution landscape. With the Metric Forecasting and the System Anomaly Analysis it is possible to predict certain systems behavior. Automated Health Checks are complementing functionalities to deep-dive analysis of critical situations. Furthermore, management applications, such as down time/work mode management, IT calendar, service availability management, and license/maintenance management are provided. Data will be delivered for SAP EarlyWatch Alert and SAP Maintenance Planner running in SAP Support Cloud.

This use case consists of two applications. Synthetic User Monitoring (SUM) allows you to monitor user scenarios based on synthetic probes sent from robots, which can be deployed in different customer locations. Real User Monitoring (RUM) provides measurement of different user request types, such as HTTP(S), SAPUI5, RFC and SAPGUI.
This application provides monitoring of data exchange processes between different systems within a solution landscape or between systems and public cloud services. Peer-to-peer integration via RFC, HTTP(S), IDOC, Web Services, as well as orchestrated integration via SAP Process Integration or SAP Cloud Integration is supported. Monitoring on single interface call or message level is supported to enable correlation of integration fragments to end-to-end flows.

This application is the central access point to handle alerts from different use cases like system monitoring, user monitoring and integration monitoring. It allows efficient handling of high volumes of alerts, based on a dashboard-driven approach. It is possible to integrate alerts coming from external monitoring systems into AEM (inbound integration), as well as forward alerts to external event and alert management or ticket systems (outbound integration). For system monitoring, automated alert reactions, especially for production-down situations, are provided out-of-the-box.
This application provides an overview of the changes that have been applied to systems, databases, and operating systems. It allows you to validate existing technical configuration towards a pre-defined policy. Support for security compliance audits can be provided by the tool. Interactive browsing and searching for certain configuration item values over high number of components is also possible.

Advanced Root Cause Analysis consists of three different applications. A dedicated application for System Analysis provides you an overview on actual and historic monitoring data from the whole system landscape, with a large variety of drill down and customizing possibilities in the user interface. With Trace Analysis it is possible to trace specific user activities across different SAP on-premise and cloud technologies. The File System Browser enables you to provide a secure read access to the operating systems for analyzing log files.
The out-of-the-box dashboarding and intelligence capabilities offer a unified shell as commonly used UI platform across all applications to enable a unified user experience. The seamless integration of monitoring, alerting, and analytics enable a one-stop user experience, which complements with a large degree of personalization and customization features for the user. The provided infrastructure allows use case specific adoption of Artificial Intelligence whenever it makes sense and adds value, e.g. for automatic Metric Forecasting and System Anomaly Analysis. Furthermore, with the Tactical Dashboard you are able to report the status of key performance indicators for your solution landscapes.
