Analyze Archiving Variants DistributionLocate this document in the navigation structure

With the transactional app Analyze Archiving Variants Distribution you can analyze the distribution of the data across the variants for a specific archiving object. For every archiving object, the app displays the total size of the archived data, the corresponding variants used for archiving the data, and the number of variants that did not archive the data (Empty Archive Runs). For every archiving variant, the app displays the history (time stamp and size of the archived data) and the details such as set of selection parameters used for archiving the data, time duration taken to archive the data.

You must activate all the relevant business function switches for ILM Data Archiving to load the live data.

The archiving administrator has to find the fastest growing table to perform archiving. You use the transaction DB02 to find the fastest growing table. After finding the fastest table you need to find the archiving objects associated with the fastest growing table. You use the transaction DB15 to find the archiving objects. Now you can perform the TAANA Analysis to find the suitable variants for the fastest growing table.

Key Features
  • View the graphical representation of the distribution of the archiving variants using any of the options - View by Size, View by Duration, and View by Size with Live Data

  • You can compare the distribution of the variants with the live data using the option View by Size with Live Data

  • Identify the variant that took less time to archive the data and the archived data that occupies less space

  • Edit the variant details to improve the size of the archived data or the time taken to archive the data

  • Navigate to the transactional app Monitor Archiving Job

  • View the results from TAANA Analysis on the tables corresponding to the archiving objects while editing the variants. You can view the results only if you have already performed the analysis.
