SAP landscapes are substantial and complex deployments that require constant monitoring to ensure optimal and efficient operation. It's not practical to manually keep an "eye" on virtual machines and network resources to ensure they aren't overwhelmed by spikes in workload or sitting idle or underutilized, consequently wasting money. Azure provides several services and tools that assist in monitoring infrastructure use in near real-time with automated alerts and resource scaling. Azure provides built-in integration with SAP database and application logs, providing a complete picture of overall system performance. This course explores these Azure services and how you can use them to monitor and optimize your SAP workloads.
- Get a foundational understanding of Azure Monitor and Network Insights
- Learn how to set up basic networking monitoring
- Understand what Azure Site Recovery is and how to set to implement it through the Azure portal
- Learn about SAP Hardware and Cloud measurement Tools as well as SAP Application Performance Standard
- Get an overview of Azure Advisor and how how to optimize Azure ExpressRoute
- Anyone who wants to learn how to monitor and optimize their SAP landscapes using Azure services
- Those studying for Microsoft's AZ-120 exam
To get the most out of this course, you should understand how to operate SAP workloads on Azure. If are new to this, we recommend you take the following courses first:
Hardware and Cloud measurement tools, HCMT, assist you in optimizing your infrastructure when deploying SAP Hana 2.0 or newer or you're applying for SAP Hana certification. HCMT collects system performance metrics and then allows you to verify the metrics against SAP Hana requirements. The HCMT tool is downloaded onto the target test system and requires at least 20 GB of free storage and ports 50000 and 50001 open. The tool performs preconfigured performance tests on the file system, network, and CPU benchmarks. The results of those tests are then uploaded to the online HCMT analysis tool.
