Procedure documentationConfigure App: A Metric for Several Managed Objects


To see the metrics and events determined by the E2E Monitoring and Alerting Infrastructure (MAI), see the Technical Monitoring Dashboard. This dashboard contains an app that displays a metric or event, such as the availability of your most important ABAP systems, for managed objects.

Note Note

As the display and configuration of metrics and events are nearly identical in this dashboard, they are both referred to as elements here, where information applies to both metrics and events.

End of the note.

You can determine which element is displayed for which managed objects. You do this in the configuration app.


To configure an app for technical monitoring, first start the Dashboard for Technical Monitoring and then switch to configuration mode (see Configuring Dashboards). You can go to the configuration screen of the app either by adding a new app to the dashboard or by choosing Edit for an app. To add a new app for displaying an element for multiple managed objects to the dashboard, choose Add New App in the dashboard and select the One Metric for Several MOs app.

A wizard then starts for configuring the app, in which you can make the following settings:

  1. First choose the required element. All of the selectable elements are first displayed in a list. By default, this list contains a selection of key elements suggested by SAP for the System Monitoring monitoring use case. You can add your own elements to this list (see Extending the Set of Selectable Metrics).

    If too many elements are displayed, you can reduce the selection by entering part of an element name to filter the list. To do so, enter part of the element name and choose the Filter pushbutton.

    Select the required element (a detailed description of the element is shown on the right of the screen) and choose Continue.

  2. In the next step, choose the required managed objects for the selected element. The managed objects are displayed for which the selected element exists.

    If too many managed objects are displayed, reduce the selection by entering part of the object name in the Managed Object Name input field and choosing the Filter pushbutton.

    Select the required managed objects and add them to the list on the right by choosing Add and confirming your selection with Confirm Selection.

  3. Repeat the step above until all of the required managed objects are in the Selected list. Note that the app can display a maximum of nine objects. If you want to display more objects, you need to distribute them among several app instances.

  4. To end the wizard, choose Apply.

  5. Your changes are only permanently saved when you choose Save Dashboard.
