CA SaaS PPM SaaS Service





CA measures Service Level Agreement targets as described below:

CA runs test scripts using application monitoring tools on the Production system to verify that the CA PPM SaaS service is available. Test scripts are run approximately once every ten (10) minutes, twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven days per week, throughout the contracted term of the service.

Service Level Availability (SLA) is measured using the formula defined in the table below.

The percentage availability is calculated based on the number of successful monitoring tests recorded in any one calendar month divided by the total number of monitoring tests conducted in that one calendar month:


SLA (%) =

(Total number of successful test scripts outside of planned outage time periods) /
(Total number of planned test scripts outside of planned outage time periods)
