The Health Monitoring app (formerly Open Component Monitoring) in SAP Focused Run supports Application & System Monitoring by providing additional monitoring metrics that go beyond standard system monitoring. Use Health Monitoring when configuration differs vastly between managed objects. In addition, Health Monitoring is used to provide low-barrier monitoring for managed objects that are not included in the landscape management database (LMDB).
Health Monitoring provides the following types of metrics for monitoring managed objects:
- General metrics
- Availability metrics
- Application Check metrics
- Cloud Service metrics (new as of SAP Focused Run 3.0 SP03)
For all metric types except Cloud Service metrics, the monitoring data of a metric is collected by a Simple Diagnostics Agent (SDA). Depending on the type of metric, an SDA is used which is either installed on a host of the monitored object or on a host in a collection group in which the monitored object is located.
A collection group corresponds either to a customer network or to a subnetwork of a customer network. Collection groups of the first kind are available in Health Monitoring automatically if the relevant customer networks are defined in SAP Focused Run. You can create, change, and delete collection groups of the second kind in the Health Monitoring app.
In the case of Cloud Service metrics, how monitoring is performed depends on the type of collection involved. With pull data collection, monitoring is by means of integration with the Expert Scheduling Management Cockpit and an ABAP collection job (frequency: five minutes). With push data collection, the managed service sends the metrics directly to the Health Monitoring app.
