WORKITEM_WRI: archiving workitems with SARA


we have a problem with SARA transaction when we try to archive workitems.

We have problems running the programm WORKITEM_WRI that have spent 18

days and 19 hours (we had to stop the proccess because of a machine shutdown) and only the 3% of archived was done.

We have done an upgrade of a 4.5B version to ECC6.0. In 4.5B version the same process with old program RSWWARCA takes 1 hour and 15 minutes in order to complete the whole archive process.

We have been tying to solve the problem checking out our system following the note 621258. But we can not find the Business Configuration Set (BC Set) ARCH_WORKITEM. Due to our patches level it should be exist.

What is happening in our system? Can anybody help us to solve this problem?

Why the process takes so long?

    Have you deleted all the work items of type C before archiving? If you haven't you probably should. I think you will also find OSS Notes about work item type C.

    Thanks so much for you suggestion but I think that workitem type C is not the problem because in the 4.5B version the archiving process of the same table only spent 1 hour an 15 minutes.

    The issue is why in one version the process runs properly but in ECC takes so long... and the process do not finish. Notice that we canceled the process after 18 days and only the 3% of the archived was done!!!

    I am new working with workflows and archiving process and I do not know if the problem is something about the customizing of the machine, size of the tables, and so on.

    Best regards.

      Since you have upgraded to ECC6 there is no need to activate the BC set. You are already using the new program WORKITEM_WRI. The BC set needs to be activated if you are currently using the old archiving program but want to start using the new archiving program. So note 621258 is not a solution to your problem. I have looked in service marketplace and there is not OSS note for the issue reported by you. I suggest you open a customer message in SAP service marketplace. Meanwhile have you tried to run the archiving program in test mode with a small set of data eg: 100 workitems ?

      Hope this helps.
