Background documentationTechnical Information about ABAP Statistics Data Reporting


This section presents technical basics, troubleshooting tools and ABAP statistics data (ASRs) reportings performance information. This reporting data is displayed in the following applications:

The information in this section is mainly background information for technically-interested customers, and help when errors occur or if the performance of reporting or the underlying technical infrastructure is unsatisfactory. It also tells you how to reduce the reporting scope if the system load is too high.

Getting ABAP Statistics Data for Interactive Reporting

This section tells you how the Extractor Framework (EFWK), the central SAP Solution Manager data collection and distribution infrastructure, determines the reporting data. The Extractor Framework architecture, and the extractors and main extractors used, are presented.

This information is under Gettng ABAP Statistics Data for Reporting Applications.

Passing ABAP Statistics Data to the Business Warehouse

This section tells you how the data obtained by the EFWK is stored in the Business Warehouse (BW) and further processed. The following areas are displayed:

  • Data Loader (writing the data into BW data store objects)

  • Further processing in BW (write DSO data into InfoCubes)

This information is under Passing ABAP Statistics Data to Business Warehouse.

Troubleshooting Tools

There are various tools available to check the data provision and processing for the ASR reporting scenario. They are presented in Troubleshooting Tools.

Monitoring and Optimizing ABAP Statistics Data Reporting Performance

If you have performance problems in ASR reporting sczenarios, you can respond in two ways:

  • Optimize the extraction of the data and writing the aggregates in BW for the same number of ASRs collected.

  • Reduce the scope of ASRs collected. This method will usually produce a greater performance improvement, but you reduce the level of detail of the data saved for different applications, so some reports may no longer work properly, depending on the settings changes.

This information is under Monitoring and Optimizing ASR Reporting Performance.
