Tivoli Manager for R/3 can provide system administrators, operators, and IT managers with the essentials of their short-term and long-term R/3 and mySAP operations. It is a comprehensive R/3 management solution for the mySAP.com e-business environment. V2.2 of Tivoli Manager for R/3 extends functionality to the CCMS Monitoring Architecture, a common architecture built into every R/3 system and providing a CIM-based data store. R/3 and mySAP applications provide feeds to the CCMS Monitoring Architecture.
Tivoli Manager for R/3 now interfaces with CCMS to retrieve important alert information about the entire R/3 system and mySAP applications. Using Tivoli's integrated management facilities, Tivoli Manager for R/3 provides key information to accelerate the troubleshooting process for R/3 and for mySAP applications. The synchronization of both Tivoli and CCMS Monitoring Architecture events provides a consistent view of the system status for all administrators.
In addition, Tivoli makes available a monitor set as a Tivoli best practice through the Tivoli International Center of Excellence for SAP (Walldorf) with the essential monitors inside the CCMS Monitoring Architecture. The Tivoli monitor set nicely complements the CCMS architecture and it is tailored to cover areas that many R/3 and mySAP customers need.
Tivoli Manager for R/3 also includes the
Tivoli Decision Support Guide for R/3
. While Tivoli Manager for R/3 is strongly focused on real-time
monitoring and automation, the
Tivoli Decision Support Guide for R/3
can help you avoid unnecessary investments in additional server capacity
by providing you with quantitative information and analysis about your
SAP workload patterns, trends, and the service you provide to your
customers on a transaction-by-transaction basis.
