Several parts of ActiveControl process significant amounts of SAP object level data, and use another SAP add-on developed by Basis Technologies called Diffuser (previously known as Mass Data Runtime (MDR)) to enable ABAP programs and transactions to run in a fraction of their normal run-time without the need for additional hardware.
Diffuser is used to process the object linkaging which is used in in Deep Impact Analysis, Test Impact Radar and several other ActiveControl functionalities.
Setting up Diffuser for ActiveControl
|1.||A Diffuser license key needs to be uploaded to the Development system using transaction /N/BTR/LICENSE.|
|2.|| Define the following programs via /n/BTR/MDR in the Development systems:
|3.||Create number range for /BTI/TE_OI via transaction SNRO.|
Initial Object Linkaging
There are two main ways of setting up the object linkaging, and it really depends on what ActiveControl functionality you want to use it for.
1) Object Linkaging for use with Test Impact Radar
Use /BTI/TE_REP_MDR_OBJECT_DI_LINK in the Development system. This will typically run for days and use a lot of data. Function module flag should be left unticked. “Save links determined” should be ticked to avoid errors
2) Object Linkaging for use with Deep Impact Analysis
Use /BTI/TE_DI_LINKS_UPDATE_JOB in the Domain Controller, on every transport form in the relevant paths, a dev target for each path and * for the location. This will schedule /BTI/TE_REP_MDR_CR_TRAN_LINKS on each dev system, creating links for every transport with a TF.
