Extracting data from SAP® has its challenges – especially if Big Data is involved. Of course it is possible to download huge amounts of data anytime, without impacting the performance of the SAP® system. However this means as well that downloading huge tables like the General Ledger lines in BSEG or the change tables CDHDR and CDPOS – which often contain hundreds of millions of records – will take some time.
But what happens, if additional data is needed „in between“, while another downloading process is ongoing? In dab:Exporter 3 we solved that problem for you by enabling “Parallel downloads”. And to ensure that the impact on the SAP® system can be controlled anytime, we invented the “Slot technology”.
In case you missed the dab:Exporter Version 3 Feature Highlights which we already introduced them here some days ago: Feature Highlights dab:Exporter Version 3.
