    1. ALE is Application Link Enabling (ALE)

    It is the set of tools, programs, and data definitions that provides the mechanism for distributing SAP functionality and data across multiple systems. ALE enables the construction and operation of distributed applications.

    Its purpose was to overcome the limitations of a single SAP system. A single SAP system that runs on top of one database often does not fulfill the needs of larger corporations, either from a business or a technical perspective.ALE allows the implementation of loosely coupled SAP systems; each of the SAP systems has its own database and is essentially independent from the other systems. ALE allows us to distribute data between different systems and different business processes.

    ALE enables you to transfer data(master/transactional data) from an SAP system to SAP/Non-SAP system you can use ALE.This done using IDOCs.

    ALE can be divided into

    Output Process: Extracting data from database and putting it in the IDOC.

    Communication Process: Which involves transferring the IDOC to the target system.

    Inbound Process: Posting the IDOC data into the tables of the receiver system.

    2. SLA is service level agreement, what you need on this ?? Its an agreement betn client and service provider regarding the service request and their resolution. Like P! issue should be solved in 1 hr , P2 issue 3 hr..something like that, varies from client to client

    3. RSMO is used to monitor the data load in BW. You have several options to restrict your criteria to monitor load.

    In SM37 if you goto the job and double click on that, it brings you to another screen with some details for the job. IN this screen if you hit the job details button in the resulting screen, it'll show you a PID number and an executing server number. With this combination, you can check the job in SM50.

    Assign Points if helpfull.
