Background job running long time could not able to kill the process

Hi,

One customize background job running long time. I tried to kill that job through following 3 ways but job was not cancelled.

1. Tried to cancel the active job using sm37 tcode

2. Tried to kill the particular background work processor through SM50.

3. Tried to kill that WP at OS level using dpmon pf=<instance profile> command.

Till now job is not canceled. Kindly give any other solution for kill that long running job.

Thanks and Regards.,

Yogesh B.

    The Yogeeswaran,

    The last way is to kill the process using OS command: kill -9 <Process PID> (Got from SM50 column Process PID for the specific background workprocess)

    Make sure the option restart after error is yes.

    The WP should restart automatically after killed.
