From his previous meetings with Carl, Scott has learned much about the capabilities of SAP Cloud ALM. But he does not want to close his meeting series with Carl without asking him whether there is another tool inside SAP Cloud ALM for operations, that Carl has not yet talked about.
Carl replies: "Did you ever think how you can check the health of all the systems and services that you are running?". Scott admits that Carl has touched on a very interesting point and he asks Carl to explain more on this topic.
Health Monitoring Allows to Check the Application Health of Cloud Services and Systems
Carl states that Health Monitoring in SAP Cloud ALM visualizes the health of cloud services and systems to identify service disruptions or degradations. It is intended to monitor technical metrics and events for both systems and cloud services from a customer perspective. For this, the health checks and metrics are regularly collected and stored in the database of SAP Cloud ALM.
Carl explains that Health Monitoring allows Scott to check the status of many aspects of cloud services and systems, such as persistency, jobs, and connectivity. It has an embedded alerting capability that can trigger notifications and corrective actions, It also has embedded analytics that will allow Scott to analyze trends and identify the root cause of a discovered problem
