In this video tutorial, we show how to work with alerts using the Alerts card on System Information and the associated view. You will learn how to enable and schedule alerts, define thresholds and run a check. We also show how you can deal with alerts and consider with the proposed solution.

SAP HANA Cloud – SAP HANA Cockpit: Alerts
Alerts in SAP HANA Cockpit
Alerts is a card (tile) on the System Overview page of the SAP HANA cockpit. It displays the number of high and medium alerts in a category and KPA (key performance area) view. The card also contains a link to the Alert Definitions view.
When selected, Alerts opens (view/app), listing all alerts with a header with search and filter functionality. We can filter on
- Type: past and present
- Priority: Error, High, Medium, Low, Information
- Time: 24 hours, 7 days, last 30 days, range, none
- Category (CPU, Disk, Memory, Security, Availability, etc.)
When selected, a detailed view of the alert occurrence is displayed, including proposed solution and past occurrences (24 hours, 7 days, last 30 days).
SAP HANA Cloud uses the same internal monitoring infrastructure as the SAP HANA platform (on-premise) edition and working with alerts in the SAP HANA cockpit is the same.
For the documentation, see
For more detailed information about each of the alerts defined and available for SAP HANA cockpit, there is a knowledge base article (KBA) on the SAP Help Portal. Similar information is also found in the Alerts Reference of the Troubleshooting and Performance Analysis Guide.
For each alert, the ID, name, description, and how to handle information is provided, pointing to additional KBA’s as appropriate.
Note that not all alerts are applicable to SAP HANA Cloud.
