BPS Save Issues ...

Former Member

We upgraded to SAP_BW 350 0013 and SEM-BW 400

0009 recently. The issue I see is that when I press save for a large

record set (say 50000 records), instead of writing directly to the

database, it seems to get hung up on the pretty printer program,function PRETTY_PRINTER (an ABAP trace shows that it consumes over 60% of runtime).

Sometimes it causes a memory short dump (over 1gig requested for 50000 records?). We didn't seem to get this issue before and have had no success

finding similar issues with a notes search or the SDN. If you have any ideas it would be great!

the issue is related to trace that is being recorded. If the trace is on, the system records all saved data into a program. With high data volume, the program and therefore the pretty print becomes very long.

Turn off the trace to resolve the problem: Use program SAP_RSADMIN_MAINTAIN and set value DEBUG_RSDRI = OFF (or space or delete the value).

Your patches seem to be not recent. Please upgrade to current patch level as follows: SAP_BW 350 0015 & SEM_BW 400 0011. Please also look at FINBASIS 300 which is at the current supplied patch level 0011.

I give the following suggestions:

1. Based on the short-dump error message, you can search SAP notes and fix the problem.

2. Your sizing may be incorrect. Please look at the sizing calculation.

If you can eloborate more, I can give you accurate solution.
