Reference: SAP Instance Monitoring Parameters

This section contains a reference of all SAP Instance Monitoring Parameters provided by Avantra.

AutoChangeDetectionIgnore

Description

AutoChangeDetectionIgnore is used to exclude parameters from System Change Auto Detection. If, for example, a parameter value changes regularly and this behaviour is well known, you may add the parameter to the exclude list.

The parameter value is still updated in the Avantra Database, but no change record will be created. Since there are several change detection objects, you must prefix the list with a keyword to indicate the object type.

For SAP Instances currently INSTPROFPARAM, J2EESYSPROP, and J2EEVMPARAM are supported. Wildcard * is supported to define multiple parameters.

Example 1. Ignored Changes
J2EEVMPARAM: java.proc.id, java.mem*; J2EESYSPROP: *

J2EEConnectUrlSuffix

Configure the URL being used by the Java SAP Instance HTTP connect Check J2EEConnectHttp

Description

Defines the URL to be used by the J2EEConnectHttp Check.

The following syntax is supported:

  • Suffix only, e.g. /sap/monitoring/SystemInfo. The Suffix is appended to the default URL (http://localhost:5<sysno>00) by the Avantra Agent internally.
    For SAP systems 7.10 and newer, the default path is /nwa/sysinfo.
    For SAP systems 7.0x and older, the default path is /sap/monitoring/SystemInfo.

  • Suffix with leading port, e. g. :8080/sap/monitoring/SystemInfo. (The leading colon is mandatory!). You will have to use this syntax if the HTTP port has been changed from its default value 5<system_number>00.

  • Whole URL starting with http://. You can freely define which URL to be checked. This mode may be used for special purposes.

  • Whole URL starting with https://. You can use this option if you want to access a https service. You also have to use this option if the default SystemInfo page is accessed via https.

In the #http/https[] options, placeholders for hosts and ports can be used. Specify <host> to let the Avantra Agent use the default host (usually 'localhost') and/or <port> to let it use the default port of the specified protocol (5<sysno>00 for http and 5<sysno>01 for https).

Example 2. J2EEConnectUrlSuffix monitoring parameter
https://<host>:<port>/sap/monitoring/SystemInfo
http://192.168.123.456:<port>/myhtmlpage

You can also use client authentication in conjunction with https. See the description of the J2EEKeystoreName Monitoring Parameter for further information.

If you cannot get J2EEConnectHttp to work using J2EEConnectUrlSuffix, then you might need to disable the check.

Reference Data
Configures

J2EECONNECT

Unit

String

J2EEKeystoreName

Define keystore for secure authentication with the Java SAP Instance connect Check

Description

If you use the J2EECONNECT check with https, you might also want to use certificates to authenticate server and client. Whereas server certificates are handled without further configuration (the Avantra Agent trusts all incoming certificates by default), client certificates must be configured and installed manually.

In order to enable client authentication in the J2EECONNECT check, a java keystore file containing the accurate certificate must have been generated, stored in a location readable by the Avantra Agent, and defined in this parameter. (If you do not define this parameter, no client authentication will be performed.)

The path of the keystore file can be specified as follows: * Fully qualified path, e.g.. /usr/keys/keystore.ks * Relative path. A relative path is applied to the {avantra-agent}'s cfg directory, e.g. keystore.ks (will resolve to `<syslink`install_dir>/lyceus/cfg/keystore.ks.)

J2EECONNECT

Default Value

5<sysnr>04

Unit

String

J2EEP4TransportType

Configure the transport type used with the Java SAP Instance connect Check

Description

The Avantra Agent connects the Java instance at the P4 port defined by J2EEP4Port. The J2EEP4TransportType Monitoring Parameter defines the transport layer (or protocol) used for this connection. By default, the value is None and the P4 protocol is used.

You can choose SSL in order to use the P4S protocol scheme in case of which the Avantra Agent uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) for the connection.

You can choose HTTPS in ordet to use the P4HTTPS protocol scheme. The Avantra Agent then tunnels the connection through HTTPS.

JavaASAvgRespTimeConsiderBest

Defines which server processes are used to calculate the Java average response time

Description

Per default, the response time of all server processes are used to get the overall instance’s average response time. If you have multiple server processes, and most of them perform well but a few very bad, the overall response time may be affected and display a false alert.

This is where JavaASAvgRespTimeConsiderBest will help. It defines the percentage of the best performing server processes used to calculate the overall server response time. The remaining will not be considered. If, for example, you set it to 50, it will only consider the best 50 percent of your server response times, i.e. if you’ve got 6 servers, only the best 3 response times of those 6 servers will be compared to the thresholds. The default value of the parameter is 100 %, which corresponds to the original behavior of the check, that all server processes are used to calculate the overall value.

JavaHttpPort

Configure the HTTP port used for the J2EEConnectHttp and PI checks on a Java SAP Instance.

Description

The Avantra Agent tries to determine the HTTP port of a Java SAP Instance automatically from the instance profile entries ICM/SERVER_PORT_nn with protocol HTTP (for pre 7.10 instances ICM/HTTP/J2EE_nn); by default 5<sysno>00 is used.

If a HTTPS port is detected in the profile as well, the HTTPS port will be preferred to the HTTP port, and connection will be established using SSL and the HTTPS port. To overrule this behavior, you may set JavaHttpPort, which in turn overrides HTTPS and forces the usage of HTTP on the specified port.

If detection fails and the default port is wrong, JavaHttpPort may be used to force-set the HTTP port.

JavaHttpsPort

Configure the HTTPS port used for the J2EEConnectHttp and PI checks on a Java SAP Instance.

Description

The Avantra Agent tries to determine the HTTPS port of a Java SAP Instance automatically from the instance profile entries ICM/SERVER_PORT_nn with protocol HTTPS (for pre 7.10 instances ICM/HTTPS/J2EE_nn);. If no HTTPS port is detected, HTTPS won’t be used by default.

If a HTTP and a HTTPS port is detected in the profile, the HTTPS port will be preferred to the HTTP port, and connection will be established using SSL and the HTTPS port. See the description of JavaHttpPort for further details.

If detection fails for a HTTPS port, JavaHttpsPort may be used to force-set the HTTPS port, overruling any JavaHttpPort setting.

SAPControlProtocol

Configures the protocol to access the SAPControl Web Service of an instance.

Description

This parameter allows to configure the protocol to access the SAPControl Web Service Interface of a SAP instance.

If you specify OFF, SAPControl won’t be used for the instance.

If you specify Adaptive, the SAPControl connector will use Windows Named Pipes / Unix Domain Sockets to connect to the SAPControl Web Service, unless the optional SAPControl User is defined for the SAP System, see Defining SAP Systems. If the SAPControl User is defined, HTTP/HTTPS will be used automatically.

If you specify NamedPipes, the SAPControl connector will use Windows Named Pipes / Unix Domain Sockets to connect to the SAPControl Web Service of the underlying instance, regardless of its type. Make sure the Agent OS user has sufficient permissions to access the Named Pipe / Domain Socket.

If you specify HTTP, the SAPControl connector will use HTTP to connect to the SAPControl Web Service of the underlying instance, regardless of its type. The HTTP port defaults to 5<sysno>13, unless the services file (i.e. /etc/services on Unix, C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\services on Windows) contains an entry sapctrl<sysno> (HTTP) defining a different port. When you specify this option, you have to define a SAPControl User in the corresponding SAP System properties; see Defining the SAPControl User.

If you specify HTTPS, the SAPControl connector will use HTTPS to connect to the SAPControl Web Service of the underlying instance, regardless of its type. The HTTPS port defaults to 5<sysno>14, unless the services file (i.e. /etc/services on Unix, C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\services on Windows) contains an entry sapctrls<sysno> (HTTPS) defining a different port.
