Tools for System Copy and Migration

Postby Rajnikanth »

These are the new Java based tools that are developed to improve the system copy process for ABAP systems. These tools can be used together with the old system copy procedures based on R3SETUP as well as for copying older SAPinst based products.

Migration Monitor (MIGMON)
Package and Table Splitter (SPLIT)
Time Analyzer (MIGTIME)
OraBRcopy (ORABRCOPY)


Migration Monitor (MIGMON)
The Migration Monitor is a tool which helps you to perform and control the unload and load process during the system copy procedure.From NetWeaver 04 SR1 on the Migration Monitor is integrated into the SAPinst system copy tool, but it is also possible to use the monitor for copying older releases by starting it manually.
The Migration Monitor will:

* create R3load command files

* create R3load task files if required

* start the R3load processes to unload the data

* transfer packages from the source to the target host if required

* start the R3load processes to load the data as soon as a package is available

* inform the person performing the system copy in case of errors


Package and Table Splitter (SPLIT)
Splitting packages is only available for release 4.0B and above.
Splitting tables is only available on project basis for release 6.20 and above.
The Splitter tool can be used for splitting the following:

* STR/EXT files

* 6.40: TSK files with WHERE clauses (including an adaptation of the corresponding STR/EXT files)

* 7.00: WHR files with WHERE clauses (including an adaptation of the corresponding STR/EXT files)

CAUTION: Please pay attention to note 833946.


Time Analyzer (MIGTIME)
Tool to analyze the runtimes of the Export/Import

* Calculates the runttime per package

* Lists the long running objects within a package for further splitting

* Creates a list with Start- and Enddate/Time per Package


OraBRcopy (ORABRCOPY)
Tool to prepare the system copy using Oracle Backup/Restore. This tool replaces the former UNIX R3COPY shell script. The tool works on UNIX and Windows and generates the control files and the new init<DBSID>.ora for the target system.


Conclusion: All listed tools are downwards compatible and SAP recommends always to use the latest tool version available - unless not stated otherwise.
