The Job monitoring application in Focused Run helps to monitor ABAP jobs in your on-premise landscape. Job monitoring is the real-time observation of the jobs regarding cancellation, duration, technical start delays and if a daily or more frequent job is still running (metric “job active”). On top you can get alerted if critical job log messages occur.
