2⟩ What is the difference between 11 and 1M extension tables?

1:1 extension table is like an extension to the base table. if we do not have the required table space in the base table for craeting new extension columns, we will use the 1:1 extension table's columns using an implicit join.

in contrast, 1:M extension tables are used for parent child relationship with the base table. where the 1:M extension has only related to the base table. for example, for a contact (S_CONTACT) there will be a number of specialities in the extension table(S_CONTACT_XM) with the parent child relationship.


3⟩ What difference between Fields and single value fields?

multivalue field has the child values from a chind BC for the parent record configured through MVL. single value field will be either from the base table or joined table.

the Difference between Single Value Field (SVF) and Multi Value Field(MVF)

SVF- a field in BC which references a column in a table

MVF- a field in parent BC which references a field in child BC

Field-Identifies and defines a field in a business component. All fields making up a business component record contain entries from both Single Value Field and Multi Value Field object types.

9⟩ Optimization techniques in EIM?

1) Limit base tables and columns to be processed by using : only base Tables,ignore base Tables,only base Columns,ignore base Columns.

2) Always delete batches from EIM tables upon completion. Leaving old batches in the EIM table wastes space and can adversely affect performance. For other suggestions on working with batches.

3) Run independent EIM jobs in parallel. Two or more EIM processes can be started simultaneously by using the Siebel Server Manager.

Limiting the Number of Records and Rows for Merge Processes.

like this many techniques are there which will optimize the EIM process
