SAP Event Monitoring Universal Task (Linux)

SAP® Event Monitoring in Universal Automation Center

Universal Task queries the SAP Event history table for the selected SAP Event & Parameter. If the Event is found, it gets confirmed, so that it is not triggered again. Optionally a task can be launched, based on the occurrence of an Event & Parameter.

Some details about the Universal Task for SAP Event Monitoring

  • The Universal Task will monitor the SAP Event history table for a certain event and related parameter.
  • For the Parameters wildcards “*” are supported
  • The Event is retrieved by calling the USAP command: “display event_history”
  • Once the Event and Parameter have been identified the Event is confirmed in SAP, so that the monitor will not trigger a second time (optional setting)
  • Once the Event and Parameter have been identified and confirmed the assigned task is started using the CLI command: ops-task-launch
  • If no task is specified, the UT runs in Monitoring mode and goes to success in case an Event has been identified
  • Currently only SAP connections via the sapnwrfc.ini destination file is supported. Please contact Stonebranch, if a Version for standard SAP Application Server connection is required (minimal efforts).
  • You can create a Task Monitor trigger out of this task by adding an action to the Universal Task, which re-started the task in case of success.
  • You can set different log-levels for the Universal task, providing you more information in case of issues
  • This Universal Task been added to the CTK-Conversion tool to map automatically Tivoli Workload Scheduler Sap Monitors called: eventProvider="SapMonitor" towards this UT.
