LATEST UPDATE: December, 2020 =========================================

For the latest information, visit our blog post series about SAP HANA certification:

This blog is part of a series to help you pass the SAP Certified Technology Associate - SAP HANA 2.0 certification exam, C_HANATEC_13.

For an overview of the exam, see

For the sample questions, see

Topic Areas

There are 10 topic areas and you can expect about 8 questions for each topic.

In this blog, I will discuss the Monitoring and Troubleshooting topic.

This topic is an exception to the 10% / 8 question rule as I counted a whopping 13 questions marked for this topic! Your mileage may vary but you might want to take note. It is a big topic.

On the SAP Training website for C_HANATEC_13, the exam objective for this topic is stated:
Use SAP HANA cockpit or DBA Cockpit to monitor the SAP HANA database, 
configure the traces and collect diagnosis information.

On my exam there were exactly 0 questions about DBA Cockpit, but again, your exam could very well be different.

Study Material

The exam guide states that the study material for this topic comes from training

You can download the index of the guide with the units and lesson objectives from the SAP Training website.

For such an important topic you would expect a dedicated unit or lesson about monitoring and troubleshooting but this is not the case. There are two exercises for monitoring, one for HANA cockpit and one for DBA cockpit. It is covered in the units Administration Tools and in Database Administration Tasks which we discuss in another blog

The topic is also mentioned in the lesson about Memory Management and Data Persistence, for this see the blog about

For SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 02, there is a dedicated SAP Training about this topic

It might be listed for the upcoming C_HANATEC_14 on SPS 02 but it is not listed for C_HANATEC_13 (SPS00). I will discuss some of the topics of HA215 below.

There is an openSAP course on SAP HANA Administration which includes monitoring

There is also a TechEd recording available from Lucas Kiesow, product manager for SAP HANA

What’s New?

The focus will be on the new SAP HANA 2.0 features, so if you are new to this version you might be interested to view the What’s New videos first:

Note that C_HANATEC_13 covers SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 00 only. C_HANATEC_14 will cover SPS 02.

Capture and Replay

The capture and replay tool is only mentioned briefly in the HA200 training so you are not expected to be familiar with this tool in any depth.

Should you be curious and want to learn a bit more: for a good introduction on the topic, see

There is also a tutorial video about capture and replay on the Academy

SAP HANA Academy - Administration: Capture and Replay

If you want to set your own test/training environment up, this guide may be of use

For the documentation, see

Workload Management

Workload management is not mentioned at all in the HA200 training so you are not expected to be familiar with this tool.

Again, should you be curious: for a good introduction on the topic, see the whitepaper and/or the TechEd talk by the product manager Ruediger Karl
