Work Processes - RZ04

Oracle 10g - Unix - BW system

My BW production environment has no configuration for RZ04. (Dummy).

I'd like to configure it, but this would be the first time for me.

Does anybody have some material / clues about how to define the total number of work processes, and how to define the number of dialog and Background processes ?

I think I should follow this sequence :

1) Define how many work processes my system would be able to work with.

2) Define how many work processes I should create for each task (DIA, BKG,..) during the day and night.

3) Perform the configuration in RZ04.

I'd like to understand how to deal with the step 1, a very technical step, but under a simple and safe point of view.

Could you please help me with some clues or material ?

Regards,

Eduardo

    Hi Eduardo,

    In RZ04>Instances/operation modes double click the "Day" entry.

    This will open a window with a button at the bottom "Other operation mode", click this.

    The Operation Mode at the top will become modifiable - use the drop down to select "Night" (assuming it is entered correctly it will appear).

    The select the number of work processes you want to change, e.g. Background and click on the "+" or "-".

    Then save it.

    Hi,

    > 1) Define how many work processes my system would be able to work with.

    You can refer SAP Note 39412 - How many work processes should be configured.

    > 2) Define how many work processes I should create for each task (DIA, BKG,..) during the day and night.

    It depends upon number of batches that you run during night. If you run high number of batches than number of background processes should be more.

      I created the operation modes Day and Night, but I don't succeed in finishing the procedure.

      My system had no configuration at all.

      I created the operation modes and then I had to create an instance in RZ04 and I linked it to Day operation mode.

      But it seems I have to create another instance which I should llink to Night operation mode.

      And I don't understand how to do that.

      If I create another instance and use the same information for Host Name and Profile Name, I will be told that the name of the server name must be unique.

      What do I do in order to create this other instance in RZ04 for my Night operation mode ?

      What do I have to change in order for the system to accept this Night instance as another instance, different from the Day instance ?

      Thanks in advance,

      Ed

    You can use below link:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/c4/3a5e76505211d189550000e829fbbd/content.htm

    Just goto 'RZ04 >Operation Mode >Create' and create a operation mode "Night" .Once that is done you can assign WP and goto 'RZ04-->Timetable' here you can define the time of operation for Operation modes.
