The SAPHOSTAGENT<SP-version>.SAR archive contains all of the required elements for centrally monitoring any host. It is available for all operating system platforms supported by SAP.
It is automatically installed during the installation of SAP systems or instances with SAP kernel 7.20 or higher.
Always select the highest SP version of the SAPHOSTAGENT<SP-version>.SAR archive, even if you want to monitor a component of SAP NetWeaver with a lower release.
You need the SAPCAR tool in order to be able to decompress the SAPHOSTAGENT<SP-version>.SAR archive. For more information about SAPCAR and how to get it, see SAP Note 212876 .
