Kill Idle / Old sessions in BOBJ 4.1 SP2 without Restart - BOBJ on SAP JAVA


Hi Everybody,

We see tons of resources for BOBJ on Tomcat and ironically very few (if not rare) to the point, direct reference to BOBJ on SAP JAVA !! I wonder how

long it will take before Sr. SAP Persons in Waldorf will release Notes / KBAs which is cent percent relevant for SAP's own SAP JAVA + BOBJ 4.1 combination !?!

We have typical issue of ' Idle/Old sessions not being released ' and being Production, we were hoping to see at least 1 or 2 notes which talks about killing sessions in BOBJ 4.1 on SAP JAVA and (NOT on BOBJ 4.0 / 4.1 on Tomcat) without server restart ..when we found

#1803138 : how to kill session in BOBJ without restart and

guess what? to our most annoying surprize --- on standard : Document is not released ??!!

We know not all " BOBJ on Tomcat " notes are applicable in cent percent manner to " BOBJ on SAP " and SAP is deafeningly silent on this !!

#1886165 - How to terminate user session manually in XI 3.1 and BI 4.0?

this note available ( and again it talks only about Tomcat !! ) but, it says SAP Do not support this method and CMS DB Back up is suggested

-- what is the use of this note in PROD Env ???

#1668750 - Sessions not being released in SAP Business Intelligence Platform 4.0 - Requires restart of server !!

Does anyone have / tried successfully work around to kill old / idle user sessions in " BOBJ on SAP JAVA " environment And / Or

Anyone knows any other note / KBA which actually talks about " BOBJ on SAP JAVA " for killing session without restart and actaully available on SMP ?

Thanks for your inputs and time,
