Instances availability

This monitor is dedicated for surveillance of ABAP application servers (AS).
It will send an alarm if an AS cannot be reached, if it is not registered 
on the message server or if is has been restarted. 

Configuration hints

  • You need to define the expected AS in the surveillance table (Use autodetect) and set the appropriate levels of severity.
  • If an unexpected AS is found, the monitor will also generate an alarm.
