Sherlock® System Metrics

The real question is: what can’t we measure?

Sherlock® System Metrics is a near real-time inspector aimed at providing up-to-date information on the performance and utilization of your SAP BusinessObjects environment. Want to trend your concurrent Web Intelligence utilization? How about your overall license utilization week over week? We can even keep tabs on the throughput of your Crystal Reports Job Servers throughout the day.


You can use Sherlock® System Metrics by itself or combined with the Sherlock® Inspector Suite.
