The SAP Service Layer

The tests depicted by Figure 1 help administrators to find quick and accurate answers to the following questions:

  • Are all SAP ABAP sub-systems functioning smoothly, or has any sub-system reported errors? If so, how many errors were reported?
  • Is the Dialog service taking too long a time to respond to requests? If so, where does the maximum delay take place - during network transfer or in the queue or during GUI call-back or at the database end?
  • Is the SAP ABAP instance available? What is the connection time?
  • Are too many users logged on to the SAP ABAP system? If so, who are they and what are the client activities they are logged into?
