Function documentationBW Process Chain Monitor


BW Process Chain Monitor monitors the status of process chains in SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) systems, and takes corrective action, if required. This ensures efficient transfer of data from the back end system, to SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) systems.


BW Process Chain Monitor depends on:

  • Alert Inbox, for the alerts raised for the system.

  • Notification Management, for details of system users, external recipients, and business partners

  • IT Service Management, to create messages


You can:

  • Monitor SAP NetWeaver BI process chains and process chain steps

  • View the alerts relevant to process chains, by going to the Alert Inbox

  • Notify the status to system users, business partners, or external recipients

  • Monitor technical systems
