SWEQADM Event queue administration
Daily checks and responsiveness
SAP Basis Administration Batch Control Job Control A large proportion of batch jobs run at night, while IT systems are available for dialog and online applications during the day. Meanwhile, web applications demand computer capacity around the clock. Even dialog systems are no longer in operation only from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., but between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. or longer. The time window for administration tasks is increasingly shifting toward transaction processing. This leaves less and less time for mission-critical batches, which can lead to disruptions and terminations. Whereas batch processing used to be a mainframe domain, companies today usually have to control background processing in heterogeneous operating system environments and client-server applications. For this reason, cross-platform, integration-capable job schedulers that can respond to unplanned events are in demand.
Soft skills in particular also play an important role in this job description. Communication skills are very much in demand on a day-to-day basis, because SAP administrators are often in close contact with customers and have to respond to their wishes and questions. They also need the ability to work in a structured manner and to find creative solutions and decisions. Continuous training in the field is advisable in order not to lose touch.
As an interface to the user, the presentation layer contains software components (the SAP GUI) by means of which the user is presented with the application. During its runtime, an SAP GUI component is always permanently linked to a user logon to the NetWeaver AS ABAP.
If you get a tp-step in the cancel message, it is a transport order-independent step whose logs cannot be displayed with logs. In this case, analyse the following files: tp-Step 6: P
tp-Step N: N tp-Step S: DS All protocols are located in /usr/sap/trans/log.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
A less good choice is the test automation for frequently changing software or processes, because the maintenance effort can be enormous.
