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

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 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.

In this scenario we advice to deploy additional instances. 2. Memory Utilization and disk response time. .118 1. The CPU idle time should not be less than 30% [For Portal up to 80% to 85%] If it is below 30% we can consider the following. The CPU is not sufficient to handle the load because the hardware is not procured as per sizing.Physical Reads]/ Logical Reads * 100 Logical Reads is the sum of [Physical reads and Buffer Reads] (Buffer Gets/ Reads) FROM ST04 Physical Reads: The reads from the database. 3. If not memory bottleneck. 1. Ensure that physical memory free is available to handle the user requests. It is calculated by using formulae [ Logical reads . Ensure that DB Buffers are configured as per the available memory. If OSCOL is not started ST06 will be blank. If the programs are expensive then refer to development team. It also displays the memory installed on the machine. ST06 OSMONITOR It Fetches the data using service SAPOSCOL and it displays CPU Utilization. The ABAP programs are expensive with multiple conditions and endless loops. DB Buffer size is not sufficient to hold the content fetched from the database. Memory available(Free) along with the SWAP space. Some times complete memory will be dedicated to DB Buffers. It is also used to start and stop SAPOSCOL (during Upgrades) Note: OSCOL brings the operating system information into ST06. If the buffer hit ratio comes down it effects on the DB response time. Frequent updates on the database 2. Probably the hardware is procured as per sizing but the number of users grown dynamically (300600).

119 We can check TOP CPU utilization for the current in the last 24 Hrs. If a user complaints that he could not connect to the server (Ping to the desktop) . LAN CHECK BY PING is used to ping to all the systems in the Network/ Landscape.

Say for Eg: from the below screen. .120 Click on Presentation Server ST07 Used to identify whether the system is optimally designed or not. Users are 9944 and the WP are 27 so each WP serves 5-10 Users so 27*10 = 270 Here users are including Active and Inactive Users.

AL11 : List the SAP Directories on Application Server. Based on the number of servers we can also define logon load balancing. When the RFC/ CPIC time are going beyond threshold value then switch on RFC Trace.121 Ask the customer to provide the list of Active users. Calculate the number of Process Vs Users to determine no of Users/ Process. It is also used to identify the memory utilized. Authorization Trace 6. Kernel Trace Available in ST01 and ST05 Only in ST01 1. When more buffer swaps occurs in the table buffering ST02. SQL Trace 5. Buffer Trace 3. It displays the log files related to work process. . Enqueue Trace 4. 2. Each work process serves around 5-10 Users. This is also used to identify Response time and Buffers Utilization. ST11: It is used to display the work directory. ST01 and ST05 Used to trace the following 1. Switch on Buffer Trace. RFC Trace 2.

7. Switch Off the trace. (Identify those statements in ST04) Eg. It will populate enormous log files and occupies the complete disk place and system stands still.122 3.

DB Refresh It is the process of refreshing the data of one system (OS. R3) remains the same but only database is refreshed. STEPS for SYSTEM COPY 1. Heterogeneous Copy When ever there is a change in OS or DB then it is said to be heterogeneous. 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. Source System 2. To setup a new system in the landscape (Only DEV and PRD exists. Kernel Upgrade to test the objects with Production data. i.161 It is used to setup a system similar to a PRD. now we need to deploy QAS as a copy of PRD) 2.

The objects which are developed in DEV needs to be transported to QAS and PRD the objects behave differently in DEV.162 Let us say there are three systems DEV. Create Control file with new database structure of QAS 5. QAS and PRD. So we need to copy the PRD (DATA files) system to QAS system from time to time to get proper quality done. Generate the control file from source system. A Small report which fetches monthly sales executes 1 Sec in DEV and in QAS where as in PRD it is consuming 30Min. Eg. It is required to keep the dependencies of the target system to restore them later i. QAS and PRD existing in the landscape. add-ons in the landscape. Restore the database from Tape or Disk. 4. We don't want any issues that crops up on the production system. Eg. The report is good in DEV and QAS but bad in PRD that means quality checks are failed. Start the system and restore the target dependencies Pre-Steps for DB Refresh 1.Copy the cofiles & datafiles in usr\sap\sid\trans . Se we need to delete the source dependencies and restore the target dependencies. POST STEPS Pre steps Pre Steps on the Target system. Make the BTC Processes to 0. Process 1. Take a copy of them using transport requests. Similarly we need to apply patches. 2. screen shots etc. RFCDES and TBDLS And then we need to release the Transport of Copies. Users. . USR02.

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.

It should atleast 20GB or 3 times the RAM (which ever is larger) Shared Memory: The memory that is shared by OS DB and R3 Processes. Local Memory: The memory reserved for a work process Ztta/ roll_area Extended Memory: The memory that is exclusively measured for all the SAP WP (It is a part of shared memory) . Virtual Memory: (SWAP) The memory that is installed could not cater to the requirements of the users so a part of disk is used temporarily which is referred as virtual memory.212 Memory Management Physical Memory: The memory that is installed on the machine and allocated to the machine by PHYS_MEMSIZE.

Eg: Note: Use only 50% of Extnd Memory for PVT Minimizing the work process will causes Hour Glass .WP congestion or Hour glass Mode WP goes to pvt mode then use DPMON and kill the session. Memory Usage sequence: Zttaroll_first Zttaroll_ext Roll_Area ABAP/ Heap 20 KB 500MB 20MB 2 GB PVT Mode DIA . ABAP/heaplimit ABAP/heap_area_dia ABAP/heap_area_nondia ABAP/heap_area_total Note: If any error encountered like Storage_parameters_wrong_set its a memory issue.213 Ztta/roll_extension per user context Em/initial_size_mb = 512MB Heap Memory: The memory that is dedicated to a process till the completion of the task or timeout.

Roll. ST02 Over all memory Page.214 Eg: Search for Rdisp* from Rz10 Rdisp/max_priv_time Rdisp/wppriv_max_no (wont waits for default 600secs) Eg: Say for eg: 4GB 50% 2GB 2GB/ 250 = 8 Note: SM04 is used to find how much memory is consuming with Tcode.

Command soladm> memlimits Multiple instances on a single server Then for eg : 64GB 16 16 16 16 PHYS_MEMSIZE .

Heap memory is configured using -XMS 1024M from config tool. If this memory is not sufficient then it uses the extended memory i. 3. The programs are loaded using class loader. This memory should be configured by (PHYS_MEMSIZE). only local configuration is allowed. JAVA uses heap memory to ensure that the requests are completed. 2. configured by ztta/roll_extension 4.. It is only configured for Active instances i.10 Users. If local memory is not sufficient the it uses the heap memory that is configured by abap/heap_area_dia which is a part of abap/heap_area_total 6. if the work process uses the heap memory it is said to be in private mode and its runtime cannot be controlled by Rdisp/max_wp_runtime but it is controlled by Rdisp/max_priv_time If more number of WP goes into pvt mode then memory bottle neck/ hourglass/ WP congestion occurs which can be resolved by killing the expensive work process using DPMON because logon is not possible to kill through SM50. byte codes are verified before they are interpreted. If Extended memory is not sufficient then it uses the remaining part of the local memory i. Dispatcher and server has their own values. In order to roll in the User Context it consumes memory that is configured by memory ztta/roll_first. Each WP required around 75MB to 150MB (DVEBMGS) of memory. configured by ztta/roll_area 5. . JAVA MEMORY ALLOCATION JAVA memory is managed by JAVA Virtual machine. When a user request for a resource the Work Process rolls the user context for handling the task. The above scenario is on process based.215 MEMORY ALLOCATION: 1.e. Each dialogue WP serves 5 .e.e.

It is configure by the parameter -XX: PERMSIZE -XX: MAXPERMSIZE It will be around 1/4th of the Heap memory. It effects only after restarting the system.It provides userid and password .SU01 or USR02 table authentication in SAP system . . Note: Only server process requires more memory because it needs to process the user requests.XX:NEWSIZE . OLD GENERATION MEMORY: (Tenured Generation) If the content is old and can be reused then it will uses OLD/ Tenured generation.the data/functions that needs access are provided with the help of Roles and Profiles. methods) then it will uses PERMANANT GENERATION MEMORY. It is calculated by using new generation memory. .

286 ST03n is used to identify the response time of the users, Transaction of reports and processes. Response time depends upon the data to be fetched, query being used, or the duration of the report. (From Date - To Date) Scheduled: When the jobs are defined the status is scheduled. Released: When the execution time is specified for a defined job then its status is released to execute at a point of time. Ready: When the specified time elapses then the status will be ready. Process Flow 1. BTC jobs are defined in SM36 2. The jobs are saved in table TBTCT, TBTCS...... TBTC* 3. A background job SAPMSSYST which runs periodically for every 60 seconds or the time specified in the parameter rdisp/btctime = 60 Secs. This period job runs in the dialogue mode and collects the jobs and runs them into active mode which are in the ready state. Active: The job is actively running on the system. Finished: The job is successfully completed/ Terminated Cancelled: The job is failed The possible reasons for Job Failure: 1. The memory is not sufficient 2. User authentication/ authorizations/ validity ......... issues 3. The variants are not properly defined. Variant is a selection criteria to provide the inputs runtime without user intervention. 4. The dependent jobs are not completed in the process. 5. Database specific issues related to space during the data extraction from backend system. 6.

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.
