Content is key as new applications get released to the market, as well as new versions of products that have been out there for some time. Application templates are a critical component of what makes Server & Application Monitor (SAM) great and we’re constantly taking feedback on how to enhance the content we have and what additional content folks would like to see. The following post is part 1 of more to come on net-new and enhanced application monitoring templates for Server & Application Monitor. As always, if you have comments or feedback, please let us know and if there are any application templates you would like to see that we do not offer today, please let us know.
SAP HANA is a net-new addition to our library. Unlike many of our other templates, there are some prerequisites to get monitoring to work properly.
This template can be found on THWACK® at the following URL
From the server that will be polling your HANA instances, you’ll need the 32-bit or 64-bit HANA ODBC drivers. You should be able to download these from the SAP portal. You also need the ODBC credentials to access SAP HANA 2.0 Express Edition. Note that if you install the 64-bit version, you will need to update the template to use the 64-bit job engine vs. default 32-bit.
If you have an account for the SAP Support Portal (customer, partner, ask-your-administrator), just enter SAP HANA client in the search bar. Take 2.0 and select the operating system (such as Windows).
If you don’t have an SAP support account, you can also download the SAP HANA client from the Developer community, https://www.sap.com/developer/trials-downloads.html. This will direct you to the SAP store; it also requires an account but this one is free.
The metrics we are gathering for HANA include the following. (If you want more details on what the counters mean, how they are calculated, and any reference documentation, please see the links to the templates. In this case, for HANA, SAP HANA 2.0.apm-template.)
Here is how this looks in SAM:
