Please have a look at SAP Solution Manager processes, including Data Volume Management






















Many customers use the Data Volume Managements tools and processes to manage & control their SAP Landscape data. 
Growth in data volumes can be driven by numerous factors. As a result too much data tends to remain on the live database, in many cases data that is never used is stored on the live database. Retaining too much data or keeping it when it is no longer useful or required can lead to rising IT costs, complex system management and decelerated system performance.
