You can manage your SAP MaxDB database system and obtain information on its status from the database administration using SAP Computing Center Management System (CCMS) (part of the Solution Life Cycle Management). Database administration for SAP liveCache technology is introduced in the following sections.
All documentation about managing an SAP system (and the SAP MaxDB database) using SAP CCMS is only relevant for SAP customers. You will find the entire CCMS documentation in the SAP Help Portal under http://help.sap.com. The SAP MaxDB-specific CCMS documentation is available as described in SAP Note 767598 .
Information about required and recommended activities for database administration: Database Administration: Overview of Activities.
For you to be able to use the database administration functions (DBA functions) of the CCMS, a number of prerequisites must be fulfilled.
The most important DBA functions of the CCMS for various monitoring and administration tasks in your database system are available in the DBA Cockpit.
A role is assigned to a user in accordance with the Authorization Concept, and this user can therefore only execute certain DBA functions from the user menu with these authorizations, which correspond to the role of the user.
You can use the DBA Planning Calendar to schedule and start data and log backups, and monitoring and analysis tasks.
In complex system landscapes, access database administration functions using the MaxDB/liveCache System Overview transaction.
You can monitor your database system with the liveCache Assistant.
Among many other displays, the CCMS Monitoring also includes the liveCache Alert Monitor, which displays critical information about memory, security and performance as alerts.
