SAP BASIS

SAP BASIS Consider the following example [EMAIL or RAILWAY] For Email - It requires a PC and an Application installed in it.

Yahoo/

Google

1. Client requests 2. The request is processed by an interface 3. The request reaches server 4. The server process the request 5. Response back to the user either {Ticket/ Email} This environment is called as a Client/ Server Architecture.

R/2 Client-Server 1. Client provides an interface to communicate with the server. Eg: IE, GUI 2. Client uses DB Client software to communicate with server 3. Each request is processed by communicating with server only I.e. there is no intermediate layer in R/2 4. Servers are heavily loaded/ traffic, long queues there by reducing the performance of the servers. 5. There is no queuing mechanism and only server queues are maintained. 6. Server needs to process the request (Understanding the user language). Interpretation takes time. These are the disadvantages of R/2 Systems.

Client Server Environment: Client requests and server responds. The major disadvantage of Client Server architecture is 1. DB Client is installed on the client 2. Processing takes place at client side 3. No intermediate buffers for the frequently accessed content 4. There is no queue mechanism to handle the requests there by servers are heavily loaded. 5. The server side processing consumes resources to process (Interpret the user requests) The need of middle layer/ tier rose to come out of the steps. The result is the Application layer/ Server Application server is deployed and it provides the following functionality 1. DB Client is installed to free up the clients (i.e. there will be only one DB Client for Application server earlier each client needs DB Client software) 2. There is a queue mechanism to handle the request there by reducing the load on the client and server. 3. User requests are served based on the FIFO using dispatcher. 4. Work process task handlers are used to interpret and process the request.

4 5. Intermediate buffers are available for the frequently accessed content to reduce the load on the Database server. 6. The server side processing is only takes place for new requests there by server resources are optimally used. Need for the Middle Layer: R/3 Architecture

The advantages of deploying Application Layer: It is the Intermediate layer in between the Client and the Server. It is installed with a database client to communicate with the database server i.e. all the clients are freed with DB Clients.

Application server/ layer handle the request and process them based on FIFO (First in and First out). It has its own queue mechanism to process the user request. It also contains the task interpreters to interpret the user request and route it to the server.

5 It is intelligent to store the frequently accessed data thereby reducing the load on the server.

R/3 Architecture: SAP uses the industry specific 3-Layer Architecture and named it as R/3 Architecture. It consists of three 3 Layers 1. Presentation Server/ Layer/ Tier 2. Application Server 3. Database Layer

1. Presentation Server: It is a client for all the SAP Solutions. It is also referred as SAPGUI. There are three 3 types of SAP GUI 1. SAP GUI for windows (On Windows OS) 2. SAP GUI for JAVA 3. SAPGUI for HTML (On all OS where JAVA is supported) (for web based)

SAP provides various versions of GUI (4.6c, 620, 640, 700, 710 and 720) 2. Application Server: It is used to handle the user request and process them to the database. It has dispatcher to process and monitor the user request, work process to process and interpret the requests, Buffer areas to store the frequently accessed data. It absorbs the load both from Client and the server. 3. Database server/ layer/ tier: It is the area where the complete data resides. It has its own queue, process, buffers, and request handling mechanism. Most of the databases are on Oracle. SAP is pushing MAXDB (without any license key), Microsoft SQL Server & IBM DB2 with discounted prizes. SAP is focusing SMB (Small Mid-sized Business) and promoting SAP for nearly 1 million/ Rs. 10 Lakhs/ per customer.

6 Supporting Platforms: SAP can be installed on Microsoft windows 2000, win2k3 (2008 is under evaluation). It can be installed on 32bit or 64bit operating systems. 64 bit means a single process can serve the user with 4GB RAM/ Memory whereas in 32 bit it is 1.9GB Memory. 264, 232 / 8 bytes. HP UNIX and ORACLE HP UNIX ORACLE AIX and ORACLE IBM Specific operating system with version 5.3 technical (TL) level 7 (TL7) AIX and DB/2 Proprietary of IBM gives more mileage. Both provided by IBM ISERIES/ AS400 with DB/2 This is also IBM specific which provides more consistency, reliability, mileage than any other operating system and database. Sun OS (SOLARIS with ORACLE) LINUX (SUSE, RHL (RED HAT LINUX) and ORACLE LINUX) Note: Linux with MaxDB is supported by SAP and provides more leverage (Finance) Microsoft windows and SQL Server This is the best combination for interactive usage 11.23 9.2.0.6 / 10.2.0.4

7 Installation of Presentation Server (SAPGUI) Use presentation server DVD and go to the respective OS win32 and run setupall.exe and follow the onscreen instructions.  Saplogon icon is installed on the desktop.  Double click and enter the entries of the application server Launch saplogon icon and click on New Item Enter the Description Application Server SID System No 16-jul-09

Basis provides the infrastructure to manage, monitor, and administer the SAP Applications Eg: Basis provides User Management Business process Monitoring Role based Security Performance Gauge etc.

Three 3 Tier/ Layer/ Server Architecture 1. Presentation Server 2. Application Server 3. Database Server

1. Presentation Server It is an SAP GUI. It is of 3 types SAPGUI for windows, HTML and JAVA. It is used to establish connection with SAP Application Server based on the name of the application server, Instance Number, SID etc.

The maximum number of work process an instance can support is W0 to W99 (100 Work processes). The memory should be calculated after reserving memory for OS and the Database..SM50/ SM66 . If a reporting user requires 3GB of memory then there will be a memory bottleneck.DPMON .44 Note: Create users in SU01 and assign SAP_ALL to the functional and technical team as the security is not implemented.SU56 . 24-jul-09 STRUCTURE OF APPLICATION SERVER Dispatcher Workprocess User Context Task Handler Buffers . but depends upon how heavy the processing goes. The requests are processed by using a dialogue process. If the system supports more than 100 processes then it is better to configure one more instance on the same server differed by the instance number. Dialogue process is the only process that interacts with/ communicates interactively with the user.from Work Directory . There are cases where more than 100 are configured but it is not recommended. Eg: 4GB RAM: 1 GB reserve for OS and DB 3 GB 3000/ 150 = 20 Processes Min and Max upto 40 Processes. Each process requires 75MB to 150MB of memory on any average.ST02 Dispatcher receives the request and processes them according to the queue. * The work process are configured by the parameter rdisp/wp_no_dia = XX . There should be atleast 2 Dialogue process per instance.

Each user transaction may be served by one or more processes with out restricting to the user similarly each work process serve multiple users with out restricting the user. which makes the system inconsistency) CONSIDER A TRAVEL AGENCY In a travel agency buying the ticket is LUW (Outward/inwards).

The frequently used content and less frequently modified is eligible for buffering. Company Name, GUI, screens, calendars, table definitions, programs etc are eligible for buffering. Data such as Exchange Rates, Transactional Data(PO, Sales Order, Invoice, Billing) are not eligible for buffering. Buffering is specific to instance. Each buffered element is stored in the memory of the instance in terms of Directories and Space. Eg. Programs can be stored up to 150000 KB, 150 MB in 37,500 directories. If the directories/ size is full then Buffer Swaps occurs in ST02. When SWAP occurs the content needs to be fetched again from Database which increases the response time.

It collase the space that is left in all the extents before allocating an extent. It requires database Reorganization. It reduces the fragmentation there by reorganization is not required. SAP recommends to migrate all the dictionary managed tablespaces to locally managed before 10g upgrade (Oracle).

BR-BACKUP BR Backup is used to take backup of the database (Datafiles). It identifies the tables whose statistics are outdated and updates them. Optimizer is used to collect the statistics for the tables whose statistics are outdated. There are various types of backups 1. When ever a backup is triggered BR Backup is initialized. How ever when these jobs are scheduled BRCONNECT runs in the background.e. (Eg. Next extents can be increased automatically) These jobs can be scheduled using DBCALENDER (DB13). Offline Backup (Cold Backup) The database is down during backup and no transaction is allowed as it is down. We need to run the DB optimizer once a week.

Full Offline Backup: It is a complete database backup without any Catalog. It is consistent and reliable with redo logs that are generating during backup. Incremental Backup It is initiated from level0 backup and used when the database size is too big.158 Eg: A database is of 2000 GB Which is not possible to take a daily full offline backup with a backup speed of 150GB/ Hour. Online Backup: It is consistent always with redo logs.

Database and R3 without changing OS or DB. STEPS for SYSTEM COPY 1. R3) remains the same but only database is refreshed. the system is completely build from OS. Kernel Upgrade to test the objects with Production data. Source System 2. To move out from one OS to another or One DB to another DB which is called as OS/ DB Migration which needs to be carried under the guidance of Certified consultant. QAS etc.specify Profile directory e:\usr\sap\sid\sys\profile .Use Additional Tasks . 3. 2. System Copy is performed using export and import of the database. i. DB. now we need to deploy QAS as a copy of PRD) 2. 4.System Copy . Heterogeneous Copy When ever there is a change in OS or DB then it is said to be heterogeneous.Source System .Specify the export location for Import. 5. DB Refresh It is the process of refreshing the data of one system (OS.select database instance export . DATABASE REFRESH by another system data.

Take a copy of them using transport requests. Start the system and restore the target dependencies Pre-Steps for DB Refresh 1. Users. QAS and PRD. POST STEPS Pre steps Pre Steps on the Target system.Copy the cofiles & datafiles in usr\sap\sid\trans . Delete the entire SAPDATA files. 2. Roles etc. Make the BTC Processes to 0. add-ons in the landscape. Printers. Eg. It is required to keep the dependencies of the target system to restore them later i. 3. So we will take a copy in QAS and apply before PRD. The report is good in DEV and QAS but bad in PRD that means quality checks are failed. We don't want any issues that crops up on the production system. PRE STEPS 2. Restore the database from Tape or Disk. Se we need to delete the source dependencies and restore the target dependencies. QAS and PRD existing in the landscape. Kernel .162 Let us say there are three systems DEV. DB REFRESH 3. Similarly we need to apply patches. Generate the control file from source system. screen shots etc. 1. The objects which are developed in DEV needs to be transported to QAS and PRD the objects behave differently in DEV. After Refresh the target system QAS behaves like production System. Eg. PRD DB Size 1TB 2TB. 4. . A Small report which fetches monthly sales executes 1 Sec in DEV and in QAS where as in PRD it is consuming 30Min. after refresh. Create Control file with new database structure of QAS 5. RFCDES and TBDLS And then we need to release the Transport of Copies.e. RFC Connections. Batch Jobs. so that no background job is triggered 6. Create the transport of copies by using SE01 and specify the following objects/ tables USR01. USR02. License. So we need to copy the PRD (DATA files) system to QAS system from time to time to get proper quality done. Process 1.

163 - Take the screen shots of SM59, BD54, DB13, SM37, AL11(All the SAP Directories), WE20 (IDOCS), SMLG, RZ12 (RFC SERVER GROUPS), RZ70 (Inorder to populate the backend system details to SLD), RZ04 (Operation Modes) SCC4, SPAM. 4. And then We need to delete all the datafiles related to QAS system. data1, data2 etc. First we need to stop the oracle services the structure should remain same. Directories like sapdata1.... sapdata..n, MirrorlogA, B, OriglogA, B 5. First Activity After taking the backup of PRD server we need to generate control file. > Alter database backup controlfile to Trace. It will generate the Cntrl File under usertrace directory. Copy the cntrl file to quality system and rename it as with .sql extension. If it is offline backup the foldernames offline b.afd online b.afd

DATA TRANSFER TECHNIQUES RFC: Remote function call (SM59) it is used to call the other system using the gateway to fetch or send the information. There are 4 types of RFCs 1. ARFC 2. SRFC 3. TRFC 4. QRFC ARFC : Asynchronous RFC: It is used to communicate between two systems but the source system process may not get the acknowledge from the Target. Some times the data may be lost in transition. The source system process does not bother whether the information is received by the target system. It is similar to a post card. It is not reliable and consistent. SRFC: Synchronous RFC: It is used to communicate with receiving system and wait for acknowledgement. If the acknowledgement is delayed it will go into RFC/ Sleep/ CPIC Mode. It is reliable but the resource gets blocked at the target system. If the target system is not available (Example BTC Process waiting too long in the active state) - All BW Systems uses SRFC.

288 SM58 - To find all the IDOCS TRFC: Transactional RFC : It is an advanced version of ARFC. It is used to communicate with receiving system and if the system is not available it will generate a Transaction ID in SM58. and a background job RSARFCSE runs for every 60 Seconds. It is reliable, gets the acknowledgement and data transmission is consistent. Example: Central User Administration Parent client creates users and send it to child clients. If child client is not available it creates a transaction ID in SM58 and ensures delivery when the child client is available. QRFC: Queued RFC: It is an advanced version of TRFC to ensure the jobs are processed in a queue. To execute QRFC we have a job called QUIN Scheduler - We have SMQ1 (Outbound), SMQ2 , SMQR - Quin Schedulers QRFC generates the process of LUW's in the sequence. When the sequence is mandatory in the data transmission QRFC is recommended. SAP Implemented all the above services to ensure the quality in the data transmission. SAP named it as QoS (Quality of Service). SAP consider SRFC, TRFC and QRFC.

1. SRFC --- BE (Best of Efforts) - With best of efforts it will deliver to Target system. When you find BE it is SRFC. Majorly we are going to use in BI and XI Systems. 2. TRFC -- EO (Exactly once) - It checks exactly once. 3. QRFC - EOIO - Exactly once in Order. ALE: (Application Link Enabling): It is used to transfer two loosely coupled systems (SAP to SAP systems) Eg. BW to CRM; ERP to ERP etc. SALE/ BD64/ BD54 it is used to define the logical systems and sending/ receiving systems. Each system that participates in the data transmission is identified by it's logical system name i.e. SIDCLNTCLIENTNO. Transfer ----------- Exchange -------------- Transmission => Are Same And is recommended to define the RFC's using logical system name to uniquely identify in the landscape. 1. Define the distribution model (In Sale TCode) in BD64 (Change) - Create Model View - Give the tech name - Continue.

289 2. API's Application Programming Interface: It is an interface in BD64 select the model click on ADD API defined based on your application either to send or receive data based on the business it is called as BAPI. (Business API's). The BAPI will be assigned between the sending and receiving system

BAPI contains one or more methods. Methods are similar to function modules to perform certain tasks. EDI: Electronic Data Interchange: It is used to transfer the data between SAP to Non-SAP systems and vice versa. In order to monitor the EDI used TCODE WE05 IDOC: Intermediate Document: It is in the understandable format of both sender and the receiver. Non SAP systems could communicate directly with SAP systems. They required adapters (File Adapter, J2EE Adapter, IDOC Adapter, HTTP Adapter etc) When the supply chain market is growing the necessity of 'E-Commerce' Electronic business EB's) is gaining importance and the vendors, suppliers wants the documents flow electronically with out any paper In order to monitor multiple senders and recipients it will be difficult to use SAP Standard transactions, SAP standard systems and mechanisms. XI/ PI EXCHANGE INFRASTRUCTURE/ PROCESS INTEGRATION It is used to communicate between SAP to NON-SAP and vice versa. It communicates with both sending systems and receiving systems via Intelligent Broker. XI Communicates with out Adapter for the versions based on WEBAS 640 and above i.e. 4.6c is involved then it requires an adapter. SLD : http://<hostname>:50000/SLD

290

1. Why SLD is mandatory in XI? - SLD is to define technical system (Hostname) & Business system (Client) that are going to participate in Integration . - It is used to define the roles of business systems in the XI domain. - It is used to define the XI Domain - Architectural components need to be defined. Integration Directory is nothing but customization Integration Repository is nothing but Development. 2. How to open the XI home page from ABAP? - By using Tcode SXMB_IFR => To Open the XI Home Page. We have default user PISUPER Password : Master Password. Design means IR Customize means ID config time. 23-Aug-09 XI 2.0 very limited XI20 to XI30 is called as Migration. XI 3.0 very limited based on WEBAS 640 XI30 to PI7.0 called upgrade. PI 7.0 Immediate release on WEBAS 700 which required both ABAP & JAVA Environment. It required both command on ABAP & JAVA Environment. XI is Used to exchange the information between SAP to SAP and NON-SAP systems vice versa.

- XI/PI is an Intelligent broker to communicate with systems using adapter with RFC Mechanism...... (BE, EO and EOIO) - XI/PI has not penetrated into market because ALE, EDI, IDOC, file transfer, Batch inputs, BDC (Batch data transfer communication) are in place. To replace them we need a new server i.e. landscape (DEV, QAS, PRD) environment which is expensive and technology required.. Where as companies are habituated to use TIBCO, ROSETTANET etc. Eg. In India Reliance, Hero Honda is using XI3.0 Xchange Infrastructure 3.0 based on WEBAS 640 Process Integration 7.0 based on WEBAS 700 PI 7.10 based on WEBAS 710 PI 7.10 based on EHP1 WEBAS 710 It requires both environments i.e. ABAP and JAVA. XI Architecture: Integration Builder -------- Integration Server Integration Directory ----- Business Process Engine Integration Repository --- Runtime Work bench Central Adapter Engine. PI is deployed through Integration Repository (IR). - Integration Builder is used to build the objects that are required for Integration (Source and receiving system). It contains two areas IR and ID. - IR is often referred as Design Time (Integration Repository) which is used to create and design the integration objects. NOTE: XI/PI license is based on date transfer like size -- 2GB, 5GB, 10 GB. XI Uses global format (XML Format) Extensible Markup language with the help of SOAP (Simple object access protocol). XML is an industry standard which is in the understandable format (Using meta data (Data about data)) It uses its own tags <address>, <price>, <customer>, <shannu><willsys> - ID (Integration Directory) is referred as config time (Integration directory) which is used to configure the run time objects (Sender, Receiver, Interface, Agreements). - To avoid complex developments SAP Provides predefined XI-Content which can be deployed using Integration Repository. The content provided will be in ZIP format which contains ".TPZ" Extension.

310 Kernel or Shell : The core that provides basic services for all other parts of the operating system. It provides set of services that can be used by programs insulating these programs from the underlying hardware. (It may be required to create SAPMnt in earlier versions but in the current versions based on Netweaver it is created automatically) SAPLoc in Windows This SAPmnt is shared because it needs to share the transports. -SAPMnt: Is a shared SAP Mount which is used to host the directories related to SAP. executables etc between systems in the landscape. support packages. To maintain file system 4. To handle interrupts 5. To handle errors 6. Major functions of kernel are: 1. To control access to the computer 3. [Dev] ---------->[Qlty]---------->[Prod] SAPmnt . or KERNEL: The kernel is the part of the Operating System(OS) that interacts directly with the hardware of computer through device drivers that are built into the kernel. To manage computer memory 2. To perform input and output services (which allows computers to interact with terminals storage devices and printers) and 7. To allocate the resources of the computer (such as CPU and input/output devices) among users. profiles.
