Why SAP Application Log Monitoring?
Background: On the one hand, the programs in the ERP environment write messages, exceptions, and errors to the application log (component BC-SRV-BAL) in most cases. On the other hand, these protocols are often neglected by users in practice. As a result, warnings and errors are not detected at all or not in time. In any case, many companies spend valuable time detecting and correcting these system states.
With the Application Log Monitor you are always informed about the relevant processes in the application log
Because with easily definable rules, you can recognize important entries immediately. You define the logic for detecting the exceptions and distributing the messages according to your needs. As a result, the responsible employees in the mailing list are informed about new situations. Finally, the department and IT automatically receive an e-mail in a timely manner. This contains relevant new log entries. The mail text is configurable. For example, it contains the long text for reporting, detailed information about the operation, and technical information. In addition, it is possible to switch directly to SAP from within the e-mail. Further data on the respective operation is available here.
By detecting and editing an exception in a timely way, you avoid consequential errors. This reduces delays in your business processes with the Log Monitor.
What are the advantages of using the SAP Log Monitor?
In any case, the timely detection, control and correction of exceptions in applications is a time-consuming activity for many companies. This is because there is no suitable log monitoring program. As a result, the analysis has to be carried out in many individual steps.
The practical challenges lie in the following topics:
- Timely detection of exceptions, errors, messages, etc.
- View SAP Application Log
- Evaluate SAP Application Log (Problem: SAP-Application Log Transaction SLG1 is technical and not content-oriented)
- Monitor SAP Application Log
- Proactive notification and rules for notification insufficient
- Many steps for the user
- The coordination effort for content errors between IT, department and business partner is high
- The control of log entries is often carried out in the IT department, although the department is responsible for content issues
Users need a solution for this. That’s why we developed a tool to monitor the application log, the Log Monitor.
With this application, you greatly improve the ability to monitor the application. With the Log Monitor, you can simply define a set of rules for monitoring the protocols in the Application Log. The special user interface makes it easy to set a set of rules for each user.
This automatically checks the system state periodically through jobs in the background. Faults are detected immediately and without any time required. Afterwards, people in the mailing list are automatically informed by e-mail. This reduces the times for detecting, analyzing, and editing exceptions. This will save your resources and speed up your processes.
What are the benefits of the SAP Log Monitor?
Often important situations in the application and in the log are not detected or too late. This is because the application programs repeatedly create circumstances during the runtime, about which the user must be informed in any way. These are often error situations.
