Customizing for the FI_SL_DATA Archiving Object (FI-SL)

Use

Before you start the archiving programs, you must maintain various settings for archiving, including the size of the archive file and variants for the test and production runs of the delete program.

Features

Archive File

You have to enter the size of your archive file in megabytes. It is recommended that you enter between 10 and 100 megabytes.

Variants for the Delete Program

You have to enter variants for both the test run and production run of the delete program.

You must ensure that the Test run indicator is not selected in the production run variant for the delete program. If the test run indicator is selected, the records that have been archived will not be deleted from the database after they have been written to the archive files.

You must also ensure that the Test run indicator is selected in the test run variant for the delete program.

Commit Counter

The commit counter determines the number of data objects counted before the program sends a commit to the database. It is recommended that you enter between 10 and 100 as the commit counter.
