Background documentationSpecifying Systems


In this step you determine the system role:

System roles can be either system-wide or individual.

  • Open the input help for System Roles above the System Selection, and choose an entry to set up a system role for all listed logical components.

  • To set up a system role for a logical component, open the input help of the System Role and choose an entry.

The systems and clients can be derived from the logical components that were assigned to the underlying analysis project with test steps and the role that a system assumes. Logical components, the systems and clients for a logical component, and the selected system role are displayed in the System Selection area.

The following is displayed for each logical component in the System Selection:

  • Name of the logical component

  • System role. You can set up the system roles individually.

  • System defined by the logical component and the assigned system role.

  • Client defined by the logical component and the assigned system role.

  • Status. Displays whether system and client problems can occur for the defined combination of logical components because, for example, a system or a client cannot be found. In the case of a problem, the usage data, which is usually transferred during the processing of the SAP EarlyWatch Alert (EWA), is not available:

    • Yellow status: The usage data can only be obtained via an RFC connection to the managed system.

      Check whether the SAP EarlyWatch Alert (EWA) has been correctly scheduled and conducted, for example.

    • Red status: The usage data cannot be obtained via an RFC connection or via an SAP EarlyWatch Alert (EWA)

      Check, for example:

      • Whether the SAP Early Watch Alert (EWA) has been correctly scheduled and conducted

      • Whether the RFC connection has been set up and works

      • Whether data from the workload statistics is available at all in the administered system

    Click the value assignment indicator for more details.

  • Check steps. Displays the number of check steps to be executed.

  • Workload, SQL, BAdI, E2E Diagnosis, UPL. If the check boxes Workload, SQL, BAdI, E2E Diagnosis, and UPL are ready for input, statistics data will be provided for the corresponding types for the analysis. In this case the flag is set by default. The analysis includes the data.

    Note Note

    • The analysis only includes those logical components for which the flag is set.

    • If the check box is not ready for input, you cannot expect any data for analysis because, for example, the system or client is not defined.

    End of the note.

    To remove data from the analysis, clear the flag.

    Recommendation Recommendation

    SQL check steps can generate a heavy system load. You can therefore improve the performance of the analysis by omitting the SQL step checks from the analysis.

    End of the recommendation.

Note Note

You can only create an analysis if systems and client can be found for at least one logical component. Check the logical components in the source of the analysis project that you base your analysis on, and the check steps assignments in the analysis project.

End of the note.
