Posted: December 26, 2015 Modified: December 26, 2015


Overview

The SAP Adaptive Service Enterprise Insight Pack provides the capability to ingest and perform metadata searches against various SAP Adaptive Service Enterprise (ASE) logs in the IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis.

The SAP ASE Error Log file stores start-up messages, back traces and stack traces, fatal error messages, kernel error messages and informational messages from SAP ASE server. You can use the Operations Analyics – Log Analysis dynamic dashboards, views and quick searches to analyze SAP ASE error messages and drill down into those messages needing attention.

The SAP ASE Insight Pack includes “Quick Searches” so users can create saved searches for a keyword or a series of keywords. You can run the searches at a later time from the Log Analysis Saved Searches pane. The installer provides the following quick searches:

  • Common Patterns: These searches are simple or common strings used while looking for different problems such as error, fatal, critical, failure, warning, and so on in the logs.
  • Functional Searches: These searches are specific searches used while looking for specific and detailed data known to impact the functional areas. You can also use these searches to look for specific patterns known to indicate performance or availability issues.
