SAP BusinessObjects Multi-Source Universe Administration Tool

During our presentation at the annual ASUG SAP BusinessObjects User Conference, we had some questions from the session attendees that asked about administration of the multi-source universes such as “How do you see the queries run against your separate data sources?” and ”¬†How can you tell the performance of each query run in a multi-source universe?”. To elaborate on the answers that were given at the conference, here is a quick overview of the tool that can help your company’s SAP BusinessObjects administrators maintain and monitor their multi-source universes.

Data Federation Administration Tool

Both of the questions that were asked at the conference can be answered with the Multi-Source Universe Administration tool that is actually called the Data Federation Administration Tool. Within this tool, administrators can look at table statistics, query monitoring, connector configuration, system parameters and actually create their own queries to perform testing and analysis of the federation services.
