Operation Mode in SAP
Operation modes in SAP is a concept provided by SAP to define more dialog processes during day time and more background processes in the night time. In SAP, we can define operation modes like day and night and configure more dialog work processes and less background work processes during day time and more background work processes and less dialog work processes during night time. We can set interval for day and night operation modes so that operation mode switch will happen at defined time and dialog work processes will be converted to background work processes in the night and vice versa.
