SLT DMIS 2011 SP6 – a quick look
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!
Thanks Kris, for sharing the details.
DMIS 2011 SP6 seems to have more promising features. Looking forward to implement it.
Great Kris - any more people out that installed the new version? Any feedback? What do you miss?
I published a complete ppt on DevNews SP06 here: https://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-52552
Currently only option for migrating the advance replication settings between SLT landscape is through export and import of setting files. This does bring challenges in terms of control and audit in a productive environment. Since all of these setting and entries are stored in SLT tables, is there any possibility of getting this integrated with standard SAP transport. This will help in terms of automated migration of settings along with the custom ABAP includes and will have proper control and audit.
Please share your view and if you are aware of any planned development in this area.
