Monitor availability status, view system and performance statistics, and review system data that allow administrators to diagnose the health and security of the runtime.


Monitored operations include security, replication-based synchronization, messaging-based synchronization, messaging queue, data change notification, device notification, package, user, and cache activity. These aspects of monitoring are important to ensuring that the required data is collected.

The critical aspects of monitoring include:


  1. Setting up a monitoring configuration. A monitoring configuration sets the server behavior for writing data to database, automatic purge, and data source where the monitoring data is stored.
    A default configuration is created for you, however you will likely want to customize this configuration for your environment. By default, monitoring data is flushed every 5 minutes. In development and debugging scenarios, you may need to set the flush behavior to be immediate. Set the Number of rows and Batch size properties to a low number. You can also disable flush, which results in immediately persisting changes to monitoring database. If you are setting up immediate persistence in a production environment, you may experience degraded performance. Use persistence with caution.
  2. Creating a monitoring profile. A monitoring profile defines one or more domains and packages that need to be monitored.
    You can either use the default profile to capture monitoring data for all packages in all domains or create specific profiles as required. Otherwise, disable the default profile or modify it as needed.
  3. Reviewing the captured data. An administrator can review monitoring data (current, historical, and performance statistics) from SAP Control Center.
    Use the monitoring tabs to filter the data by domain, package, and time range. You can also export the data into a CSV or XML file and then use any available reporting or spreadsheet tool to analyze the data.
