Proxy or File which is better approach

Hi

I am using PI 7.1. I need to pass some informations (approx. 40K records per day) from SAP CRM database to a third party application. The target communication will be file. What is the best approach for source communication? Is proxy the better option or should I write an extraction programme in SAP CRM, generate one file, and then do the transformations required in PI?

Regards,

Nirupam

      Hello Nirupam,

      If you want to invest few mins to know more abt proxy's and comparing to RFC/IDocs, refer the below! Though your choice is between proxy & File, but below is useful to you(i hope)!

    Hi Nirupama,

    >>40K records per day)

    per day 40k records will not be a problem for file adapter.

    >>The target communication will be file.

    so let the source also be file (provided it is not difficult to make one)

    >>What is the best approach for source communication? Is proxy the better option or should I write an extraction programme in SAP CRM, generate one file, and then do the transformations required in PI?

    if a record will be of size 40 k then both mode is ok.. the one for which you will have less overhead to create and maintain should be selected.

    Hi

    Use of Proxy will be the better approach!!

    If you use File based communication, Adapter engine has to convert this file to an XML format and then IE will process this message

    But if it is Proxy, Proxy Run time will directly send the message in XML-SOAP format from local IE to PI IE. So your run-time is saved by skipping Adapter Engine .
