The course is aimed at anyone interested in learning about the runtime environment for SAP systems that are based on SAP NetWeaver. After completing this course, you’ll understand the technical background of the Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP), which is the foundation of all ABAP applications.
The task of the client/server technology components in SAP is to provide a reusable runtime environment for other components that use client/server technology as the basis on which to process requests. The focus is on optimizing operating system resources (CPU, memory, etc.) in terms of performance, scalability, and robustness.
In this course, you’ll learn about the main components of client/server technology in SAP: SAP Start Service, dispatcher, enqueue management, memory management, gateway, ICM and SAP Web Dispatcher. You’ll also learn how to use the latest tools and features to monitor these services.
The course will be based on the SAP NetWeaver 7.4 release.
Week 1: Startup, Dispatcher, and Enqueue Services
Week 2: Memory Management and Gateway Service
Week 3: ICM and SAP Web Dispatcher Services
