DMIS 2011 SP6/DMIS 2101 SP10 was released yesterday (http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/1958809) and brings in some nice features, details of which are described in the note. Bellow is a quick summary of what I managed to have a play with thus far, mostly on the new UI features:
Transaction LTRO (monitoring)
We can now view details of multiple configurations in one screen 😎
Number of available DIA/BGB processes can bee seen as well as configuration status/alerts.
The Configuration view provides further detail (status/latency…etc) and enables drill down to the tables within each configuration
Transaction LTRC enhancements
Multiple configurations can now be stopped/started in one go via the additional buttons:
The Data Provisioning function is now able to create ’empty’ tables and DB Views:
Some new ‘Expert’ Functions available, including ability to Log replicated records (needs to be activated for the configuration) as well a function to display table information from the source system. New options for latency notifications at table level are now available…yet to play with that.
Transaction LTRS (advanced replication Settings)
A new way to deal with ‘legacy’ IUUC_REPL_CONTENT
I still need to go through the new features as there are quite a few, however, from a usability point of view, things just got better!
