BW Tablespace ONLINE reorganisation

Hi community,

to regain about 60GB wasted Disk resources I am planning to reorganize my ODS Tablespace on my BW System running Oracle

In the past we did this task offline, using export/import procedure. Now I think about the possibility of an ONLINE reorganization. In Note 646661 and 771191 I understood that there are some restriction on BW systems while moving a Tablespace. It seems that in BW there are dependencies between Tablespacename and BW-Tables.

When I use brspace to reorg online from old-Tabelspace to new-Tablespace and finaly rename the new-Tablespace to it's original name - what tasks I need to take care - sorry, note 771191 confuses me and I am not sure about the required steps

I appreciate your expierence

    how big is PSAPODSD and PSAPODSI ?

    You can reorg online especially when there are no loads being done in your BW systems. That's the best time frame.

    you could reorg online to PSAPODS2D and PSAPODS2I, when finished, you will need a 5 minutes downtime to:

    0. stop SAP BW

    1. reorg again to get some objects that might have been create in original tablepsace

    2. drop PSAPODSD and PSAPODSI if they are empty

    3. rename PSAPODS2D to PSAPODSD

    4. rename PSAPODS2I to PSAPODSI

    5. restart BW

    • You got me right.

      users won't see a difference. you might have a small performance hit while reorg runs.

      BW does not really care where the info is stored when reading it. the only problem is when new tables/indexes are created. this is when BW decides win which tablespace the objects should be created. If this happens, you might get some objects in PSAPSR3ODS and not PSAPSR3ODS2.

      test this out on a test box first.
