SAP FC: Archiving of Reporting IDs/Category Scenarios...

Hello,

is there a possibility to "archive" reporting IDs, categroy scenarios,... so that they do not get loaded all the time? The longer SAP FC is in use (we are using it since 2004) the slower some parts get, because all these data is loaded every time.

Regards

Martin Gebhartl

    Hello Martin,

    If you are using the version 10 of FC, you can use the archiving tool .

    This tool allows you to archive consolidated data and clean-up the Financial Consolidation database through a graphical interface, without having to run queries directly into the database.


    You can delete the following objects:


    - schedule


    - report


    - folder


    - reporting ID


    - category scenarios


    - filter


    - rule


    - set of rules


    - subset of rules

    Regards,

    Inès

      Dear Martin,

      Indeed to Ines’s response, generally the consolidated data presents 50% of the total FC database
      size.

      The standard tool provided with the version FC 10 and named “Archiving tool” help to only archives consolidated related tables which help to :

      • Decreases the size of Financial Consolidation production databases
      • Better monitors the volume of consolidated data
      • Guarantees a high level of performance for the data most accessed by users
      • Reduces the need for additional fast disk storage devices

      For more details, you can refer to the FC administration guide.

    Hi,

    Could you please indicate your type of database server (Oracle or SQL ) ?

    You can find the the administration guide some recommendations for improving performance.

    In fact, it's recommended to perform regular backups and archive backup tapes.

    Best regards,

    Siwar

    Hi Martin,

    How are you ? 😊

    Which part of the product becomes slow?

    From my point of view, if you select a reporting ID, the category builder view should not be slow to load (unless you have hundreds of category scenario).

    Regards,
