Buffer analysis
In the authorization environment, in addition to assigning authorizations to SAP users, there are a number of important SAP Basis settings that you should check regularly to ensure that your SAP system is fully protected, both internally and externally. For example, particularly in the context of an audit, it is important to ensure that changes to the SAP system always remain traceable. In this blog, I would like to show you how you can best implement this and what to look out for.

When I began my career administering SAP ERP on Oracle in the early 1990s, running a database required far more knowledge. An Oracle administration expert with a decade of experience understood perhaps only about 5% of what the database required.
System Updates
There are the following reasons that may lead to the termination of this step: CANNOT_GET_OBJECT_LIST: The Object List of a Support Package could not be found because the Support Package does not exist. CANNOT_GET_LAST_UPGRADE_INFO: Unable to locate information about the latest Repository Switch upgrade. UNRESOLVED_ADDON_CONFLICTS: Conflicts with add-ons could not be resolved because the corresponding CRTs from the queue are missing. SPDD_SPAU_CHECK This step will check if a modification match (transactions SPDD/SPAU) is necessary. DDIC_IMPORT This step imports the ABAP Dictionary.

Using profile parameters, we can configure everything in the SAP system. Some parameters are dynamically modifiable, which means that they can be changed without restarting the system. However, these changes are not permanent, i.e. after a system restart, the pre-set profile parameters are used again. Other parameters, however, are static, i.e. only with a restart and only permanently modifiable. Most profile parameters for memory allocation are actually static. However, there is the possibility to adapt it dynamically with the report RSMEMORY. Read how to find out if a parameter is static or dynamic and how to use the RSMEMORY report to dynamically adjust the memory allocation parameters. RZ11 - Maintenance of profile parameters The transaction RZ10 gives us information about profiles, which in turn contain different profile parameters. In the transaction RZ11, however, it is possible to view information about individual parameters, provided that you know their name. As you can read in our Memory Parameter Post, the following 5 parameters are particularly important for memory management: abap/heap_area_total abap/heap_area_dia abap/heap_area_nondia ztta/roll_extension_dia ztta/roll_extension_nondia If you don't know exactly what a parameter might be called, it's worth using the F4 help here. For example, for the parameter abab/heap_area_dia, the RZ11 outputs: Description of the parameter abap/heap_area_dia in the RZ11 As you can see here, it is not a dynamic parameter. Now it is rather sorry if you want to test whether there is enough memory available to restart the system again and again. For this purpose, there is the RSMEMORY report. RSMEMORY - Test your memory allocation strategy Report RSMEMORY Report View No documentation or value help available here, but SAP documentation tells you how to use the report. This first distinguishes between dialogue and non-dialogue work processes. That is, in the first area you can set Extended Memory (Storage Class 1) and Heap Memory (Storage Class 2) for Dialogue Workprocesses, and in the second area you can set it for non-dialogue workprocesses.

Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".

Their interdependencies create a high level of complexity.

The website offers many useful information about SAP basis.

Also, what happens when you try a double spending by sending one transaction to one miner and then another transaction with the same money to another one millisecond later? These two could not yet exchange and thus information would be different in the network.
