SAP Business Objects - Custom Checks

Here you will find detailed information about Custom Checks for Database monitored objects.

All custom checks within Avantra have a number of standard or common attributes. For more information please review our page on Custom Checks.

SAP_BO_JOBS

Monitor canceled, delayed, long-running, or short-running SAP Business Objects Jobs.

Description

The SAP_BO_JOBS custom check allows you to monitor if a given SAP Business Objects Job is canceled, delayed, running too long or too short, running in the defined time period, or if multiple instances of the check are running. Note that this check monitors jobs within the SAP Business Objects system. SAP Data Services jobs are not supported.

Specific Configuration
Job Name

Fill in the name of the job. The wildcard * is supported in order to monitor multiple jobs using the same Custom Check definition. Use a comma to separate multiple jobs. Each SAP BO job matching the pattern given as the job name is considered on its own and reported as a sub check within this check.

Excluded Jobs

Fill in the name of the job to be excluded from the search. Use a comma to separate multiple jobs. Wildcards are supported.

Consider last

Specify the number of days to select jobs. If left empty, the last 2 days will be considered.

Select Job Types

Use the search or selector tool to include only the jobs of a certain type(s). If left empty, then all job types will be considered.

Select Job Owner

Only the jobs of the specified owner(s) will be examined. All owners will be considered if the field is left empty.

Select Jobs started after

Set this time to select only jobs which are started after this time. Set a time between 00:00 and 23:59.

Select Jobs started before

Set this time to select only jobs which are started before this time. Set a time between 00:00 and 23:59.

The following settings can be performed with Select Jobs started after and Select Jobs started before: If you set both times, only jobs which are started within this time interval are selected.

Example 1. Job Start Examples
  • To select jobs started between 10:00 and 16:00, set Select Jobs started after to 10:00 and set Select Jobs started before to 16:00.

  • To select jobs started between 23:00 and 02:00 (of the next day), set Select Jobs started after to 23:00 and set Select Jobs started before to 02:00.

Rules Configuration

You can compile your own rules using the Rules section. The overall rule may consist of separate smaller rules. If the job matches the rule’s criteria, then it will go to the specified Status.
