    What's new in Avantra 20.11?

    Featured Image

    We are thrilled to announce the release of version 20.11 of Avantra providing the next step on the journey to a data-driven fully automated AIOps solution.

    Our final major release of 2020 is now available for download from  downloads.avantra.com. It brings a whole set of new features and updates that will delight our customers and help them to take a significant step forward in their SAP Operations modernization journey.

    For a full explanation of what's new in Avantra 20.11, join Brenton O'Callaghan, Avantra's Chief Customer Officer, and Bernd Engist, Avantra's Chief Technology Officer, in this short video covering all of the new features in detail:

     


    Introducing support for SAP IQ Database

    With 20.11 we're introducing native support for SAP's IQ database including eight (8) new out-of the-box checks which are applied automatically during configuration. Avantra 20.11 also includes resource usage predictions (forecasting), performance data collection and support for customer-defined checks (custom checks) for SAP IQ.

    SAP Cloud Platform & SAP Cloud Connector

    The majority of SAP customers have some set of cloud components integrated into their landscape, and this aligns to SAP's mantra to "Keep the core clean". With Avantra 20.11, we're introducing native support for the on-premise component "SAP Cloud Connector" so that you get instant visibility into your connection and integrations to SAP SaaS products. We also include support for the SAP Cloud Platform (Neo and Cloud Foundry). This feature contains out-of-the-box checks for day to day operations, including Keystore expiration issues or failed messages.

    SAP SLT

    We've enhanced our auto-detection within SAP systems to include support for SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server (SLT). When detected, Avantra applies five (5) new out-of-the-box checks to the system to cover topics such as "IUC Jobs", "Unprocessed records" and much more.

    SAP HANA Enhancements

    As part of our constant expansion of system support, we're introducing five (5) new native checks for SAP HANA out-of-the-box bringing our total to twenty-three (23) SAP HANA checks applied to HANA systems automatically by Avantra 20.11. Further checks include:

     

    HDB_Admission

    Checks for delayed SQL statements due to admission control – introduced in HANA 2.0

    HDB_License

    Checks license expiry date and peak memory consumption of the HANA instance compared to the licensed peak memory.

    HDB_SystemUser

    Verifies whether the user SYSTEM in a HANA environment is deleted, deactivated or in use

    HDB_TableAllocationUse

    Checks how much memory in % does the table row store uses compared to the defined global_allocation_limit

    HDB_TableRowCount

    Identify table partitions approaching the upper limit of the 2 billion rows.
