This section describes how to generate a Landscape Analysis Report using the SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform Support Tool 2.x client application.


Analysis types that are marked with the symbol  require additional configuration such as the SAP Host Agent or JMX.  Analysis types that do not have this symbol can be run simply by logging into the CMS and do not require pre-configuration.  For the most complete Landscape Analysis Report, complete the following pre-requisites:

  • SAP Host Agent should be installed and running on each BI node and WAS node
  • Landscape Definition should be created under "Landscape Configuration"
  • Host Agent logon information should be defined in Landscape Definition
  • operations.d folder should be copied to each BI node
  • JMX should be enabled on the Web Application Server and configured in Landscape Definition

Refer to the Getting Started Guide for setup instructions
Getting Started with the Windows client version

Creating a Landscape Analysis Report

  1. To create a new Landscape Analysis Report, click Create Report on the left navigation bar

  2. Select which Analysis types you would like to include in this report instance.

    (Basic - without any additional configuration such as SAP Host Agent and JMX)

    (Complete - when SAP Host Agent and JMX are configured and validated)

  3. To set a date range filter for the Schedule Analysis, click the calendar button  then click Enable Filter, set the Start and End date, then click OK.

  4. To set a TOPN for the Schedule Analysis, click the filter button  then enter the desired TOPN value (for example top 50) and click OK

  5. Notice, Analysis types that require the SAP Host Agent or JMX configuration are specified with the gear symbol .  Mouse over the gear symbol for more details about the configuration

  6. Once you are ready to begin the extraction, click the Submit button
  7. Next, you will be prompted to logon to the CMS system.  The CMS system chosen here is used to lookup the landscape definition defined in the Landscape Configuration.  The Host Agent and JMX configurations are automatically supplied based on which landscape the specified CMS system belongs to.


  8. Once the report has completed processing, it will automatically be displayed in Report Results viewing window and the data XML will be stored in the BIPST user data directory.
  9. To save the Landscape Analysis Report, click File, Save As, Landscape Analysis.  This will save the currently selected report tab as html files and data XML in a compressed ZIP file.  Browse to the location where you want to save the ZIP file and click Save.

    IMPORTANT: If you are attaching the Landscape Report to an incident for analysis by SAP, always use the "Save Landscape Analysis" option and not the "Save Analysis to Excel" option.
