Background Job cancelling & ABAP dump in Business Process Monitoring

Hello SAPians,

We're configuring Business Process Monitoring for our Development system from our SolMan Development. During that for a business scenario, most of the times the background job got cancelled and throws a dump and rarely it gets completed successfully. While analyzing the dump it shows ASSIGN TYPE CONFLICT error in /SSA/EKP program.


Our doubt is why it is getting cancelled most of times and rarely gets completed successfully when the parameters for BPMon are same? Any help will be appreciated 😊

    Hi Palaniappan

    Background data collector start data collection to the key figure that is due.

    Judging from the dump, some key figure belongs to /SSA/EKP seems to have problem.

    /SSA/EKP is program mostly for ERP logistics. So I assume you configured some key figure related to ERP logistics area like Sales Order, Purchase Order, Production Order etc.

    Anyway, if you face a dump on EKP, I recommend you to check your ST-A/PI version and required correction note by following SAP Note 1759233.

    Refer to the SAP Note SAP Notes managed system

    Depending on the ST-A/PI, required SAP note is different.

    You should implement note with key word "TBIs for ERP" "Infrastructure" "framework".

    And please implemented latest version of each Note. Because when some bug is found, the correction is added on new version of same note. So if you implement old version of listed note, you may miss some of the correction. So please check implemented SAP note and version as well.

    Best Regards

      Hi Palaniappan

      Regarding on the note 2124552 , do you mean a report ZZ_ADD_POSTPROC_TR_CUST ?

      The report is needed if you uses described through put key figure like below.

      The report provide correct key figure repository configuration.

      Production Orders (Created) ('Production Orders', KPPP0001, key figure 7)

      Process Orders (Created) ('Process Orders', KPPP0002, key figure 7)

      Purchase Order items created ('Purchase Orders', KPPURCH2, key figure 1)

      Purchase Requisition items created ('Purchase Requisitions', KPPURCH3, key figure 1)

      MM Invoices (Created) ('MM Invoices (AP)', KPPURCH4, key figure 4)

      MM Invoices (Posted) ('MM Invoices (AP)', KPPURCH4, key figure 6)

      Total number of Notif. created ('PM/CS Notifications', KWPM0001, key figure 1)

      Notifications from Maint. Sched. created ('PM/CS Notifications', KWPM0001, key figure 2)

      Manual Notifications created ('PM/CS Notifications', KWPM0001, key figure 3)

      Number of Orders (created) ('PM/CS Orders', KWPM0002, key figure 1)

      Even if you implement the note, you still have dump, I recommend you to raise your error via SAP incident.

      Best Regards
