5,250 customers have adopted SAP’s platform-as-a-service HANA Cloud Platform (HCP), along with 525 partners, according to figures SAP shared publicly in early November 2016. During 2016 many organizations started to ramp up their use of HANA, as can be seen from these numbers to the ones SAP supplied two months earlier in September, which had HCP customers at over avantr4,000 and partners at 500.
As defined by SAP, HANA is deployable on premise or in the cloud. It is an in-memory computing platform that lets you accelerate business processes, deliver more business intelligence, and simplify your IT environment.
As with any new system, HANA brings new challenges. As a non-cloud server, it needs to be monitored to ensure that the system is available, working properly and performs as expected. Daily tests & reporting needs to be part of the daily routine of every SAP Basis engineer who manages a SAP HANA environment.
We’ve created a checklist to help simplify your HANA monitoring and ensure that you are monitoring the right things.

While each is vitally important and requires proper monitoring, there are various documents already written on it. In this post, we will review three unique HANA health checks that can help ensure that your HANA environment is running properly
These are just a few examples to the extensive list of HANA health checks that needs to be done in the least detail. The depth of the monitoring as high or low as the reporting granularity and availability that you are looking to achieve. While each system is different, we’ve assembled a list of a set of daily health checks that can be done manually.
