The SAP HANA cockpit 2.0 provides a single point of access to a range of tools for administration and detailed monitoring of SAP HANA databases. It also integrates development capabilities required by administrators through the SAP HANA Database Explorer.
The SAP HANA cockpit 2.0 is a web-based HTML5 user interface that you access through a browser. It runs on SAP HANA extended application services, advanced model (XS advanced).
The cockpit handles single-container and multi-container systems as of SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 12.
You can use the cockpit to monitor and manage multiple SAP HANA database systems and tenants
The cockpit can be installed separately on dedicated hardware, shared hardware or in an existing SAP HANA database tenant. It provides greater flexibility, because it allows you to

The Database Directory is like a summary of all the databases you're responsible for. If you see a database marked as Stopped, Running with issues, or Unknown, it means there's a problem. To figure out what's wrong, you can go to the System Overview page in the cockpit by selecting the corresponding line.
If the entire SAP HANA database system is having issues, it's crucial to quickly find out why so you can fix it and get everything running smoothly again. Even if the whole system is down, you can still use the cockpit to investigate the main cause of the problem. This is done through the SAP start service connection
