Exporting and Backing Up Your SLD Information

All SLD data is stored in the Java EE database and is therefore automatically backed up during the database backup. However, from time to time, especially before installing updates, you may want to create SLD-specific data backups.

For more information, see Exporting and Backing Up Your SLD Information .

Synchronizing the SLD Content

If you have a landscape with several SLDs, you have to make sure that their content is correctly synchronized.

For more information, see Synchronizing SLD Content .

Viewing Logs

During a system process, the SLD server logs relevant information for monitoring purposes.

For more information, see Viewing Logs .

Cleaning Up Data

The data supplier programs report data about the systems in your landscape to the SLD. When a system no longer exists in your landscape, you have to clean up this data manually in the SLD.

More information: Cleaning Up Data .

Creating System Messages

You can create an informational system message, which will be seen by every user who logs on to the SLD.
