SAP

StackState Self-hosted v5.1.x

Overview

The SAP StackPack is used to create a near real time synchronization with your SAP system and also pulls the metrics from it. The components supported are:
  • SAP Host
  • SAP Host instance
  • SAP Process
  • SAP Database
  • SAP Database Component

Setup

Prerequisites

To set up the StackState SAP integration you need to have:
  • ​StackState Agent V2 installed on a single machine that can connect to both your SAP Instance and StackState.
  • A running SAP instance.

Networking requirements

The StackState SAP integration requires the following TCP ports:
  • 1128 for HTTP
  • 1129 for HTTPS

Install

Install the SAP StackPack from the StackState UI StackPacks > Integrations screen. You will need to provide the following parameter:
  • SAP Host Name - the SAP host name from which topology and metrics need to be collected.

Configure

To enable the SAP check and begin collecting data from your SAP host instance, add the following configuration to StackState Agent V2:
  1. 1.
    Edit the Agent integration configuration file /etc/stackstate-agent/conf.d/sap.d/conf.yaml:
    • Include details of your SAP instance:
      • host
      • url - Use http for basic authentication (user/pass) and https for client certificate authentication.
      • user
      • pass - Use secrets management to store passwords outside of the configuration file.
    • To authenticate with a client certificate and private key, add:
      • verify - Set to False to skip verification of the client certificate (default True).
      • cert - Path to the client side certificate.
      • keyfile - Path to the private key for certificate.
      # Section used for global SAP check config
      init_config: {}
      ​
      instances:
      - host: TEST-01 # <sap_host_name>
      url: https://test-01 # <sap_host_url>
      user: test # <username>
      pass: test # <password>
      # Extra parameters for client certificate authentication:
      verify: False
      cert: /path/to/cert.pem # <certificate_path>
      keyfile: /path/to/key.pem # <keyfile_path>
  2. 2.
    ​Restart StackState Agent V2 to publish the configuration changes.
  3. 3.
    Once the Agent is restarted, wait for the Agent to collect data and send it to StackState.
