Old Locks on table FDC_TIMERDAEMON_LOCK in SM12

Hi All,

We have installed S4 HANA 1709. We are noticing locks (X) on table FDC_TIMERDAEMON_LOCK table under user DDIC. These locks are not getting cleared automatically and is available in each client in the system.

What are these locks? How and why are these created and can these be deleted?

Please advise.

Thank You!

    Hello,

    The lock is part of the running FDC_START_TIMERDAEMON - it is implemented as a daemon running in the background - most of the time just 'sleeping'.

    So seeing the lock in SM12 means, that the clean up process is running in the background.

    Regards,

    David

    Hello, David.

    Thank you for the reply.

    We are seeing locks older than 2 weeks in SM12. Is it common to have FDC_TIMERDAEMON_LOCK table locks in the system?

    Is there a need to delete these locks or can these be ignored?

    Thank You!
