In more complex system environments, thousands, if not tens of thousands, of SAP jobs can run per day. Their interdependencies create a high level of complexity. If administrators or admin teams want to maintain an overview, they have to rely on meaningful monitoring. It must be clear at all times which jobs are running and which are not, in order to ensure proper SAP operation. Ideally, one is informed of critical errors by e-mail or SMS. The trend towards internationalization, outsourcing and mixed operation with on-premise and on-demand systems means that SAP landscapes are often widely distributed. This makes monitoring more difficult and, at the same time, clarity must be maintained. Integrating SAP job management and job requests into a central system, such as SAP Solution Manager, therefore makes sense and is useful for supplementing IT service processes in a meaningful way and accelerating process flows.
You would like to know more about what is happening on your SAP systems - then I recommend that you take a closer look at the Solution Manager Usage Procedure Logging (UPL) functionality. What code is often executed? Which database tables are accessed regularly? What unused developments exist? - The UPL provides answers to these questions. You can implement the functionality into your existing SAP landscape without additional licence costs and with moderate effort. What information does the UPL provide? Usage Procedure Logging is used to log and record user behaviour data roughly comparable to the ST03N workload statistics. UPL is able to record the call and execution of the following ABAP objects: Reports Functional Blocks Classes Methods Subroutines SQL Calls In addition, UPL is able to detect dynamic programme calls and generate transparency about the modifications used. All usage data is recorded in detail and automated and, if desired, made available centrally in the SAP Solution Manager. Benefits 1) Hardly measurable Performance Impact 2) Central collection of data of all systems in the SAP Solution Manager's BW 3) No complex setup 4) Once activated, the collector and extractor jobs run regularly and without further manual activities Possible usage scenario If you have Solution Manager 7.2 in use, you can use UPL within the framework of "Custom Code Lifecycle Management" (in German: management of customer developments). After one activation of the BW content and some standard jobs, you select one or more systems for which you want to activate UPL. If you already have the SP05 installed, there is a separate "Guided Procedure" for configuring the UPL in SOLMAN_SETUP.

Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
SAP Basis experts ensure optimal integration of the SAP system into a company's individual IT landscape. Depending on the agreement, the team of experts takes care of the administration as well as the hosting and operation of the SAP system.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Proactive monitoring of your SAP landscape; automatic notification by mail/SMS in the event of critical system statuses.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
The growing number of installed components - such as SAP BW, SCM, SRM, PI/PO - and systems integrated via interfaces - RFC, WebServices - further increase the requirements.
