Exporting Monitoring DataLocate this document in the navigation structure

Save a segment of monitoring data to a location outside of the monitoring database. Export data to back up information, particularly before purging it from the database, or to perform closer analysis of the data in a spreadsheet application.


This option is especially useful when you need to share monitoring data with other administrators and tenants. Since this task can be time-consuming, depending upon the size of the data being exported, SAP recommends that you export the data in segments or perform the export at a time when SAP Control Center is not in use.
Note The time taken to export the requested data is dependent on the time range specified, and the amount of data in the monitoring database. If the export is taking too long, or the user interface is blocked for too long, another option is to export the monitoring data using the management APIs provided for exporting monitoring data. Please see Developer Guide: SAP Mobile Server Runtime > Management API for further details.
