Scansor 2020.05 Release Notes

Generated on May 27, 2020 
Technical version: 2.0.0


We are proud to present you a brand new release of Scansor - formerly known as SAP monitoring for PRTG - the one and only tool to monitor SAP systems, the tool our customers love.


With this release we introduce new license keys. You will need a new license key for using it. Existing customers will be informed and contacted automatically. Please do not hesitate to contact our support or sales if you have any questions to your existing license.
This release includes also new sensors that will change your way of monitoring.


New Sensors
SAP PI/PO Sensor

This brand new sensor contains parts of the PI message monitor and allows you to monitor the status of the messages. You get an overview of the amount of messages with the following status:

  • error messages
  • canceled (with error) messages

By default the monitor covers the messages from the last hour but that can be easily adjusted.


SAP Security Check

From a production perspective, it is considered critical if authorization object S_DEVELOP is assigned to users. In general, authorization object S_DEVELOP with more than display access (ACTVT 03) is not required by any user in production.

Unlike other Sensors, this Sensor outputs not a PRTG result but a list with the UNAME (username) and AGR_NAME. With this check you get a list of users who got that auhtorization object assigned.


SAP Certificate Monitor
This sensor represents the state of certificates in SAP. It returns the following channels for each PSE:
  • OK: Certificate valid
  • Warning: Certificate expires in 30 days
  • Error: Certificate expires in 7 days
  • Error: Certificate not yet valid
  • Error: Could not parse PSE validity

It returns an error message as result text if there is an exception while collecting PSE or OS executes.


SSH File Monitor
There is a standard sensor which can do this on Windows systems. But this new sensor allows you to monitor the modification date of one or more files also on Linux systems by using SSH. The last modification time will be shown in hours.


Bugfixes
SAP Job Monitor ignores warning limits
  • Correction of limit parameters in "Aborted" and "Suspended" channel (change warning limit min to warning limit max)
  • Add options to check also for "ENDDATE" and "ENDTIME" (not only "STRTDATE" and "STRTTIME") for all channels except "Suspended"
  • Parameter "Days" removed; using only parameter "Minutes"

SAP STMS Monitor checks wrong time value

Fixed a bug where the sensor returned too many results due to wrong date and time handling.
