Job & Automation Monitoring
Scope & Content
The purpose of Job & Automation Monitoring, which is available as of SAP Focused Run 3.0 FP02, is to provide transparency about the status of automation processes regarding Execution Status, Application Status, Start Delay and Run Time with the aim to offer these 4 core operations aspects for all kinds of (scheduled) automation processes (for simplification called “jobs” in the later text), that run on different platforms with a unified user experience using a common look-and-feel and handling pattern.
The basic concept is to collect individual job execution data into the central monitoring application, to correlate it with its job definition and evaluate every execution using historical data. The rating of the last (or latest) execution(s) is propagated to the job level and finally to the service level so that you can easily understand the current state of many jobs that are executed in the different systems. In case of issues with job executions, context-based navigation is offered from the job to the individual execution and finally a direct navigation to the corresponding job execution in the executing system (or service). This is for providing quick access for a more detailed analysis, for example to stop a not ending execution or to restart a failed execution.
Job & Automation Monitoring shall help to understand the current state of the automation processes across all involved cloud services and systems. The aggregated historical data shall help to detect deteriorations to avoid downtimes. On top, in case of a SAP ABAP system it shall help you to efficiently monitor so called Standard Jobs, which are those jobs that are scheduled by the SAP S/4HANA Technical Job Repository (see SAP Note 2190119) or in lower releases by the SM36 Standard Job framework.
Jobs and workflows are executed in the managed cloud services and on-premise systems. The individual executions are captured (start, end times, and status) by the local execution infrastructures this “normalized” run data is sent to SAP Focused Run, where the individual execution data is assembled and correlated with definition data.
Job & Automation Monitoring in SAP Focused Run collects data for these job / automation types:
