I was wondering if the latest levels of SM 7.0 w Enh 1 have changed with respect to resource requirements, specifically memory.

I recently went from SPS 26 which used BI Content 7.04 to SPS 28 which uses BI Content 7.06.

Suddenly I'm geting lack of memory style errors...

There are many reason for high memory usage, we need to find out exact applicaiton cause this issue and turn off the one.

exactly when are you getting this ABAP error? have you upgraded BI_CONT for any specific purpose

like for IT performance reporting, BI reporting in BPMon.

can you give some more specific hint here,

I used SM MOPZ support stack 28 for SolMan 7 Enh pk 1.  It included the BI_CONT upgrade.

There seem to be multiple problem locations...

My ABAP configuration includes a 2G EM allocation.

OS is AIX 5.3 TL 11, so per process heap is limited to 180M.

The LPAR has 8G RAM, 8G swap.

I run dual stack SAP, diagnostic agent, wily introscope EM and db2 udp for LUW 9.7 in this LPAR.

The ABAP stack has the following:

Failure location #1

User DDIC client 000 - I think this is triggered from collector_for_performance job.




This is followed closely by a PARAMETER_CONVERSION_ERROR, current program SAPLSCSM_COLLECTOR

Quite often followed by System 33 shortage of swap.

Location #2

User SOLMAN_BTC client 010 - this is SM:EXEC SERVICES processing EWA for solutions for production solution (includes ECC 6, SRM 5, EP 7).




Location #3 User SOLMAN_BTC client 010 - An extractor?




I've been unsuccessful in matching these up with unapplied notes.

Thus the thought that SPS 28 for SM 7 Enh 1 somehow requies larger memory configurations...

By the way, most SM usage is Batch.

I am monitoring (according to EWA) 37 systems, mostly through ccms agents, but there are 13 diagnostics agents connected and 6 wily introscope agents.

I've configured EWA reports, E2E Diagnostics, IT Performance Reports for Prod ECC and SRM.

No ChaRM, no Service Desk...
