The administration and monitoring features of the SAP HANA cockpit are now split into the tile catalogs System Administration (for MDC) and Database Administration
Manage Services app (replaces Database Status app SPS 09): app that allows you to start/stop/remove services (same actions as in SAP HANA studio)
Performance app (replaces Memory Overview and Resource Utilization Statistics apps of SPS 09): This app allows you to visually analyze historical performance data across a range of key performance indicators related in particular to memory, disk, and CPU usage.
Monitor Statements app is a new app that provides you with information about the 100 most critical statements currently active in the database.
User Tables app is a new app that allows you to visualize tables by size, explore the usage history of tables, and move tables to warm storage.
