There seems to be some misunderstanding of what the different types of archiving is. I therefore have decided to create a video where I talk about the differences between them. Hopefully it will clear some of the misunderstanding.
I see that there are two different types of archiving
- Content archiving
This part is where messages is saved technical. It is the standard form of archiving in SAP Process Integration. Technical archiving is where all the runtime messages from SXI_MONITOR and the corresponding tables from the adapter framework are removed. This happens to conserve space in the database and ensure the PI can run fast enough.
This part is to make sure the content sent is archived. This is by extracting the message and make sure it can be recovered.
There is a 15 minutes video about the content.
