AWS Systems Manager
What is the AWS Data Provider for SAP?
The course is part of this learning path
In this section of the AWS Certified: SAP on AWS Specialty learning path, we introduce you to strategies for operating and monitoring SAP workloads on AWS.
- Understand how to use Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, and AWS Config to manage and monitor SAP infrastructure on AWS
- Describe various AWS cost management tools including Cost Explorer, AWS Cost and Usage Reports, and AWS Budgets
- Understand how to automate patch and state operations for our SAP instances using AWS Systems Manager
- Explain how the AWS Data Provider for SAP is used to help gather performance-related data across AWS services
The AWS Certified: SAP on AWS Specialty certification has been designed for anyone who has experience managing and operating SAP workloads. Ideally you’ll also have some exposure to the design and implementation of SAP workloads on AWS, including migrating these workloads from on-premises environments. Many exam questions will require a solutions architect level of knowledge for many AWS services. All of the AWS Cloud concepts introduced in this course will be explained and reinforced from the ground up.
Let's talk about reports. Reports can be super, super, super useful. For example, in this case, I build a specific view for EC2 instances running in Frankfurt, in the EU region on a monthly base, like on a base for December, in this case. And because I wanna use this view more often, I can save it as a report. And to do this, I just click here on save as. I give this one a title, EU-EC2. I save it, and that's it.
By clicking here, on recent reports, I can see this report. Or I can just go under report overview and see all the reports that I have here. The reports with a lock here are default AWS reports, and the one without a lock are my own reports.
Some of the AWS reports can be pretty useful. For example, what I use quite a lot is the RI utilization and coverage, or the savings plan utilization and coverage, that basically shows you how effective or efficient your reservations are.
