Landscape Monitoring for SAP BusinessObjects

Pulse allows DataOps/DevOps and others to quickly see, in real time, the health of their analytic platform and monitor vital statistics such as response time, memory and CPU usage and process-specific behaviours.

It also offers deep correlation between system performance and resource usage and the users and assets of your analytic platform to help answer difficult questions such as:

  • Are users encountering slower dashboard response times at certain times of the week?
  • Do we run schedules or extracts during times of peak interactive use? Of what?

Installing Pulse

Pulse is installed alongside MetaMiner - there is no separate installer for it. However, not all license keys support Pulse. If you are unable to launch Pulse then please contact Infolytik support to review your licensing arrangement.

Installing the Remote Metric Agents

In order to monitor real time performance metrics of your SAP BusinessObjects landscape at the process level, you must deploy the MMRMA or MetaMiner Remote Metric Agent. The following steps will walk you through that process:

  3. Copy this file to each one of your of your SAP BusinessObjects nodes that are running any type of BOBJ server components
  4. Double-click the file and complete the wizard. Make sure to install to the C: drive only.
