Saposcol question

Dear Gurus,

My saposcol was down and ST03 statistics were missing. Then I restarted saposcol and all the statistics were back from that day.

-my question, how this could happen if saposcol was stopped?

Please Advice,

Dimitry Haritonov

    Hello Dimitry,

    I don't think that the two points have any connection. saposcol is responsible for operating system data only (st06 and the operating system part of rz20). st03 has nothing to do with saposcol.

    Most probably the two symptoms occurred together by chance.

    Regards, Michael

      Hello Shanti,

      > What all the information avilable in at the SAP level like response time and all(In ST02, ST03, and so on), this all avilable due to OS COL only

      no.

      saposcol is only responsible for OS data. If you stop saposcol, only st06 (and the operating system part of rz20) will be affected.

      st03 data will still be collected because it has nothing to do with saposcol.

      st02 data will also still be collected.

      You could simply test this behaviour by stopping saposcol on your system. The workload data in st03 will not be affected from this.

      Regards, Michael

    Off the top of my head I would say that most of your st03 statistics should be there.

    Not sure about your st06 ones as the saposcol is mainly for O/S monitoring

      SAPOSCOL collects data from operating system.

      You can see this data from transaction ST06.

      If you go to Detail Analysis tab in transaction ST06 you will find detail information for you CPU ,File system etc.

      If SAPOSCOL is not running you will not see ant data there.
