How-to Guide: OS Command Adapter
This guide explains how you can react to Monitoring and Alerting Infrastructure (MAI) Alerts in SAP Focused Run by sending an OS Command:
Within SAP Focused Run, MAI offers a unique and centralized alerting approach. It pulls metrics and simple events from different data providers as a simple diagnostics agent at the managed system. Alternatively, MAI provides this information via a (third-party product) CA Application Performance Management push mechanism.
- An event calculation engine for complex events and end user alerts out of the retrieved metrics, as well as for simple events to prevent alert flooding.
- A centralized directory for metrics, events, and alerts. This includes SAP and customer template knowledge and context information, such as system landscape and interface information.
SAP Focused Run uses an Alert Consumer Connector (ACC), with adjustable protocols, to forward collected MAI data to end users via automatic notifications and an alert inbox. In addition, the ACC can process MAI data through a third-party connector. In that event, an OS command adapter executes external OS commands and directs MAI data to a desired third-party tool.
- The alerting is setup should have been successfully completed in the system.
