All your applications have a process on OS level as a baseline. Making sure this process is running smoothly is a first step to monitor the availability of your application. With the OS Collector SAPOscol the monitoring of processes is possible since a long time. In the older days, these monitored processes were visible in CCMS. This guide describes how you can leverage the process monitoring capability of SAPOscol with SAP Solution Manager 7.1 and 7.20 Monitoring and Alerting Infrastructure and create custom metrics to monitor the processes of your SAP and non-SAP applications.

Refer to Custom OS Process Monitoring in SAP Solution Manager.

    Great and clean documentation! Thanks

  2. Hello Frank,

    how do you monitor processes for a technical system which consists of more than 1 application server?

    Kind regards,   Jochen Kauschalek

    1. I would model the system as a unspecific cluster system where each application server of your system is a separate instance.

  3. Hello Frank,

    it seems that the maximum of processes which can be monitored is 50. Is this right?

    The list of processes written to trace file dev_coll is ends after process item no. 50.

    Kind regards,   Jochen Kauschalek
