SAP CCMS Alert Monitoring

While monitoring is a critical component in the monitoring system, another key component that will provide visibility into the health of the system is called alerting. Alerting is an element of the monitoring system that triggers action whenever there are changes in the metric values. The main purpose of alerting is to bring attention to the current status of the system. Alerts should contain information on what is wrong and where to go for additional information.

The SAP Computing Center Management System or known as SAP CCMS is one of the tools in an SAP system that provides system-wide monitoring and produces alerts that will be beneficial in monitoring the whole SAP system. IT-Conductor provides 24-hour CCMS alerts that have been detected, monitored, and categorized. Automated templates are also available to create IT-Conductor alerts from the CCMS alerts.
