 Remote Application Server Status MonitorLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can use this monitor to check the availability of individual application servers. The monitor therefore has a similar task to the Availability and Performance Overview Monitor, although with two important differences:

  • This monitor shows only application servers on which an instance agent is active (see Infrastructure of the NetWeaver- Management Agents).
  • The monitor displays a more detailed description of the availability for each monitored application server that also includes, for example, the start time of the server of the status of the SAP release.


There is a separate subtree in the monitor for each application server. Each subtree consists of the following monitoring tree elements (MTEs):

MTE Name (MTE Class) Description

Description (CsmTaskR3Instance.Text)

Information about the monitored application server:

  • SAP system to which the server belongs (in figure above: C12)
  • Name of the server (here Host4_C12_01)
  • Host name of the application server (here Host4)
  • SAP release of the server (here 4.6D)

Status (CsmTaskR3Instance.Status)

Information about whether the agent that is monitoring the server is active or inactive, and how long it has been in that state

Log (CsmTaskR3Instance.Log)

Log file in which the agent writes additional information about the application server, such as how long the server has been active

Heartbeat (CsmTaskR3Instance.Heartbeat)

Time since the last test of whether the application server is still active; if the server is inactive, this attribute contains the value 0 sec

Availability (CsmTaskR3Instance.Availability)

Percentage of the time in which the application server is active (by default in the last 15 minutes; you can change the time period in the Properties of the MTE class)
