    Hello Praveen,

    Could you please specify what kind of batch jobs you are looking for? Neither batch jobs on OS/400 level nor batch jobs on SAP level would be recorded in the system log (Tcode SM21)...

    Best regards,

    Victor

      Hellp Praveen,

      If I remember it correctly, the system log is saved in file named like /usr/sap/SID/DVEBMGSnn/log/SLOGnn.LOG (replease nn with the instance_number).

      The way it is written is that when it reaches the end, it simply goes back to the beginning... so there are about 2777 lines all the time. No batch job flushes it.

      Best regards,

      Victor

    Hi,

    you should check your running Batchjobs at the time of the creation of the new syslog file. It is possible that a reorg job like RSBDCREO get TemSe errors and this errors overwhelm the syslog. I solved this problem by a TemSe consistence check with SP12.

    Hi all,

    I am having the same problem. Where SM21 is just giving me one day worth of logs. It says it is going through 2777 lines...and for some reason just displaying 60 lines which are for Todays date. I made a selection criteria of the past 15 days. PRD, DEV, arent having this problem only QAS.

    Would appreciate the Help.

    Thanks,

    Fiyaz
