 Buffering PermissionLocate this document in the navigation structure


You must define whether and how a table is buffered in the technical settings for the table. There are three possibilities here:

  • Buffering not allowed:

    Table buffering is not allowed. You use this option when, for example, application programs always need the most recent data from the table or the table is changed too frequently.

  • Buffering allowed but switched off:

    Buffering is allowed from the business and technical points of view. Applications which access the table work correctly with and without table buffering. Whether or not table buffering results in a gain in performance depends on the table size and access profile of the table (frequency of the different types of table access). Initially the table buffering is not activated because it is not possible to know what these values are in the customer system. If table buffering would be advantageous for the table size and access profile of the table, you can activate it in the customer system at any time.

  • Buffering switched on:

    The table is buffered. In this case you must specify a buffering type .
