transaction SM50 / Process / Trace / Reset / All Files

after them a new empty file with the name dev_w* file will be created - the old file sap

saves in the file dev_w*.old! so you must reset all files twice again!

Hi Lal,

these files are the work process trace files one file for each work process.

everytime you restart the instance these file are written to another file as .old

and existing one emptied.

for example dev_w1 will be written to dev_w1.old for one restart and it goes on

for every restart of the instance.

For your problem, some work process is running continuously, increasing the size of the file. Go to SM50 and find the work process. If you are unable to kill there

note down the Process id and kill it from Operating system.

They contain the logs for the work processes. In sm50 you can see a column numbers. The work processes are numbered and dev_01 refers to the no 1 work process. You can reset the trace files from SM50.
