Buffer trace for more than 5 defined tables possible?

Hello!

With ST05 you can switch on a buffer trace. Using 'trace on for user' makes it possible to activate the trace for a defined number of tables. The number of tables is limmited to 5.

I would like to trace 100 tables. Is it possible to extend this formula. Is it possible to do this with one trace at one time?

Thanks,

Holger

    Hi Holger!

    You can, but you don't need to restrict the trace to specific tables.

    So one option: just don't filter any tables and ignore the additional lines later in trace analysis.

    Other option: use wildcards (e.g. MAR* for MARA; MARC; MARD tables)

    If some tables are blowing up your trace, but aren't any performance problem -> use the exclude part.

    Also a restriction to a special program can restrict the tables without using the tables filter explicit.

    Also a filter in trace display can restrict the results - but it's still using more memory and time.

    Regards,

    Christian

    Hi Holger ,

    This is the limitation. However you can use generic names to include / exclude like DD* ot T*.

    The only other option is to activate trace for a bigger list of tables ( if possible restrict by generic names ) and only analyze the desired 100 ones. While dipalying trace you have very good option to filter out .

    Cheers.
