The Application Processes Layer
For a SAP ABAP instance, this layer is mapped to a Processes test, which will report the status and resource usage of process patterns that have been explicitly configured for monitoring. In addition to the Processes test, additional tests are also mapped to this layer to figure out the status of each central services process and SAP process, ascertain if each central services process and SAP process is running.

Since the Processes test has been discussed in detail in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document, the sections that follow will discuss the remaining tests mapped to this layer at length.
