How to monitor on a compression-process?


Hi specialists,

I'd like to know how I can keep an eye on the status of a compression-process.

I need to compress aprox. 800 requests and would like to monitor the proceeding.

So far I realized that there is no kind of process-bar in the RSA1 Cube-management. Even worse - while the the compression is running, cube-management isn't possible at all because calling the cube-management ends up in an timeout and dump because the compression locks the E/F-Tables exclusively.

Same is for SM16 - I've no chace to check how many records already have been inserted into the E-table.

All I can do is monitoring the process in SM50 - but that doesn't give me any hint about the status of the processing.

Perhaps you'd like to give a guess how long it will last until 800 requests (and 70 Mio records) got compressed. Hint: It's more than 12 hours at least.
