Precalculation Server

Hello all:

what is precalculation server for BI?

I have seen this indicator when I send broadcasting report.

do I need separate installation ?

Thx in advance


Hi, Manthana...

It is very clear that BW system is a resource intensive m/c and mostly works on the varients of unix OS. BW systems are generally high end server grade m/c with oracle installed in it.

But the pre cal server is entirely different thing. I have got pre cal server installed in my set up. here in pre cal server u can take a PC with XP as an OS. That is recommended strongly by SAP . Though pre cal works on 2003 as well but best works with XP. This works with the varient of Microsoft OS. And Pre cal server is only used for pre cal of work books while broadcasting

Pre-calculation server can be run only on Windows Environment.

In a producttion scenario you will not run it on a User PC, but on a Windows server which will be available most of the times.
