This is something we're actively investigating. SAP is a different beast altogether, and is much harder than the other packaged apps we've built templates for; however, requests for this are second only to Java.
This is a need for me too.
Is there a blog/changelog/etc where we can follow the advances on this?
Please let me know what can I do to help (providing data, feedback, etc).
stripet, or anyone else in this thread, would you be willing to work me and one of our developers to create an SAP application template for APM? Unfortunately due to SAP licensing terms we're unable to obtain a copy of SAP for our lab so we'll need the assistance of the Thwack community to develop an SAP template for APM.
A lack of an SAP evaluation or reasonably priced development license has thus far hampered our efforts. Monitoring SAP via their proprietary API requires continuous access to the latest versions of SAP software for both Development and QA to validate against. We haven't given up, but progress on the SAP front has been slow moving. We'll keep the community updated as more information becomes available.
aLTeReGo just wondering if there has been any additional progress or if you are still looking for help. We are in the middle of an sap rollout and we are being pushed hard to be able to monitor the servers AND the application / user experience. Our CTO recently brought in some old "business partners" who are proposing a total replacement of Orion. It's going to be a hard argument if whatever they are proposing does everything Orion does an more. Not sure what there solution is yet, we just had the first meeting last week. But would be killer if we had something to counter back with.
Nothing that I can share at this time but we've had a few customers who've implemented their own SAP monitoring using the Nagios script monitor in SAM and the libraries that are available on the Nagios Exchange.
