Its extremely importanat that you know the fundamentals of background processing in an SAP System is most significant to schedule different types of jobs in background efficiently. This is what i share with my students who enrol in my high impact sap basis training course pricisely By reading this article, I am confident that you will understand the fundamentals of background processing in an sap system completely.
while writing thsis article i have taken the neccessary care and attention so that you can get an complete idea on background processing in an sap system, ask yourself the following questions and try to answer one by one clearly. If possible, please try to analyse the answers using an sap system with consists of 2 or more instances.
Q1. How many background work processes are configured in your sap system?
A. Check how many instances are available for your sap system using the t-code SM51 then you can log on to sap system using each instance and count the number of background work processes are configured using the t-code SM50 then add all the background work processes of all the instances to determine the total number background work processes that are configured in your entire sap system
You can also find the total number of background work processes using the t-code SM66 without logging on to each instance. T-code SM66 shows the global work processes overview.
In the initial screen of SM66, select the process pushbutton and then select the type of work process and status as wait and click on execute button in the application toolbar. The resulting screen will be displayed with the total number of configured background work processes in all the instances of entire sap system.
Q2. How do you determine the number work processes are configured in an sap instance within the sap system
A. The system parameter rdisp/wp_no_btc determines the number of background work processes that are configured in an sap instance. You can display the value of this parameter using RZ11 t-code or RSPFPAR t-code. You can use RZ03 t-code to switch between different operation modes that are configured to overwritten the number background work processes that are configured. Using the concept of operation modes, you can change the number of background work processes without restarting the instance.
Q3. How many jobs that can be processed simultaneously in background in an SAP system?
A. In an SAP system, the number of jobs that can be processed simultaneously depends on the number of background work processes available in an SAP system. For example, if there are 6 background work processes are configured in an entire sap system, sap system can process 6 jobs simultaneously. If you try to schedule 7th job, job will be scheduled and will wait for the free background work process to perform the 7th job.
Q4. Can you increase the number of background work processes when all the background work processes are busy in performing different jobs, without restarting the instance?
A. Yes, it is possible only when the operation modes are configured with operation mode that has more background work processes. You can manually switch to other operation mode using RZ03 without restarting the instance or entire SAP system.
