    Hi Arman,

    Process chains are nothing but a tool to load the data. It allows you to take care of data load dependencies, schedule jobs in parallel and schedule at various times, without manual intervention. Take a look at the threads below for more details on Process chains, including their development.

    Process chains are used to load the data into the data targets automatically doing one step after another.

    like deletecontents-> deleteindexes->load data->create indexes->rollup->compression.

    normally if we do manually we have to go to each and every screen and do to the needed.

    by using process chain we can define the steps one after the other and just start it it will do the steps defined one after the other.

    its good to use process chains for daily jobs.

    Hi Arman,

    for Monitoring .. that means.. after create the chain.. we need to monitor the data loads.. for this go thru the following steps..

    The two most important transactions which you need to get by heart are :RSPC and SM37.

    In SM37 you can view all the jobs having different status(Ready,Active Finished and Cancelled etc).When you trigger your chain it will show in SM37 as job name bi_process_trigger(if you trigger it through RSPC). and adjacent to that you will have your username.Once you trigger the chain search in sm37 with your username.

    In the top menu you will find button job log which tells you all about what happened when this job was run.What was name of the chain which was triggered also the details about its different process types which were executed in this run.

    RSPC is the most importan transaction for monitoring and you will have to use log view button to view any days logs.In the log view ..the chain in red shows failure ,green success and yellow as still running.Right click on any variant (process type) and it will give you option display variant --> which will forward you the the concerned DTP or Infopackage or whatever process type you are trying to execute by using that variant.

    For creation of chains you can refer to help.sap.com

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/advancedsearch?cat=sdn_help&query=processchainvariantprocesstype&adv=false&sortby=cm_rnd_rankvalue

    Try to go through the links and you will know how to creat a chain.Creation of chains is not a big deal but you will have to take into account various Process Types ,what are there uses.Like some important process Types which you will have to use while creation of chains:

    Execute InfoPackage

    Read PSA and Update Data Target

    Save Hierarchy

    Update DataStore Object Data (Further Update)

    Data Export into External Systems

    Delete Overlapping Requests from InfoCube

    Data Transfer Process

    Close Request of InfoPackage (RDA/Push)

    Trigger Event Data Change (for Broadcaster)

    Delete Index

    Generate Index

    Construct Database Statistics

    Initial Fill of New Aggregates

    Initial Activation and Filling of BIA Indexes

    Roll Up of Filled Aggregates/BIA Indexes

    Compression of the InfoCube

    Activate DataStore Object Data

    Complete Deletion of Data Target Contents

    Delete Entire Content of Linked Transactional ODS

    Archive Data from an InfoProvider
