    Regarding archive logs, the questions is do you need archive logging enabled in IDES? Archive logs are used to recover the system to a point in time. If IDES server crashes and do you need to recover the system to the point in time before the crash? If yes, then backup the archive logs at regular intervals. If you d not need point in time recovery for your IDES system, then disable archive logging in the database (instead of enabling logging and just deleting them from oraorch). Make sure the end-users are aware that if the system crashes, they lose their data since the last data back up. Our IDES system is just a play ground system, so archive logging is disabled.

    Hi Manjula,

    Its very simple to clear down all the logs, for ABAP dumps you need to schedule the Background job in sm36 (SAP_REORG_ABAPDUMPS) - report name (RSSNAPDL) and schduled for every day morning at 3am.

    for the SAPARCH file system you need to schedule the archive job for every hour in DB13, create a new job in DB13 and select the cleanup log and there you should select the option -sd, and you need to schedule this for every 1 hr so that all the logs will archived automatically.

    Let me know if you need any more help.

    Cheers,

    Praveen
