Dear Shreya

1. SAP now offers upgrade adjustment for all objects being upgraded in the form of transactions SPAU and SPDD

SPDD allows you to adjust modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects during an upgrade.

SPAU allows you to adjust programs, function modules, screens, interfaces, documentation, and text elements after an upgrade

Please refer

2. Output Request can go directly to printer, or it can go to spool, if it goes to spool then spool request is generated, you can view it in SP02.

3. You can monitor system performance using the CCMS. SAP provides a round-the-clock sevice (Early Watch) for this. The purpose of the Early Watch service is to improve system performance through preventive identification and the avoidance of system bottlenecks.

To benefit from the Early Watch service you need to have a separate client (066 is standard) in the production system that is used exclusively for measuring system performance (for security purposes, to prevent company data from being accessed when system performance is measured

The Early Watch service measures the server, database, applications, configurations and system load. The results are recorded in a status report with recommendations for system tuning.

Hi Shreya,

Certain points that i want to add to what Jitesh has told

Differences between Spool request and Output request :

The SAP System differentiates between two types of request when printing:

· Spool request

· Output request

A spool request is a document for which a print function has been selected. However, it has not yet been output on a printer or another device. The output data for the print document are stored in a partly formatted form in the TemSe Data Store, until an output request is created for it, that is, until it is sent to a particular output device.

The spool system uses a spool request to store the print data temporarily in TemSe and to be able to access it. The data is stored in a temporary format. You can also display the print document.

The system automatically assigns a 10 digit ID number to a spool request.

From the point of view of the SAP spool system, an output request is outputting the print data of a spool request on a particular output device.

Multiple output requests may exist for a single spool request. Each represents an instance of the output of the same spool request. Each of these output requests may have different attributes, such as the target printer, number of copies and so on.

By differentiating between spool request and output requests, the spool system provides way of storing the data temporarily.

You an administer spool requests and output requests using the Output Controller (Transaction SP01).
