VMware: Troubleshooting SAP Performance with VMware vRealize Operations
Over the years VMware support has investigated numerous performance escalations of virtualized tier 1 applications. One of the more challenging aspects of this task is coordinating all the key performance monitoring metrics across the different technology layers from the application down to the hypervisor. This is where VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) with the Blue Medora Management Packs can help to expedite the troubleshooting process. I will show an example here with a virtualized SAP on Oracle system.
The Blue Medora website has links to all the installation documentation for the different application management packs. Once the SAP and Oracle Management packs are installed and configured in vROps to connect to the individual SAP and Oracle systems, the adapters will discover and generate SAP and Oracle objects in vROps which can be accessed via menu Home -> Environment -> All Objects. The following screenshot shows the discovery of the SAP system.
As shown above the different instances of the multi-tier SAP system have been discovered: two application servers; Central Services; database instance with system ID = “TST”. You can then drill down into the SAP metrics for an application server.
This SAP system is running on an Oracle database. The Oracle management pack will discover the Oracle database as shown below.
