    Hi Sachin,

    You can check the role area usage ib t-code st02

    Check for current usage percentage and max use and in memory.If max use= inmemory then there is less roll area.You can increase the value with the parameter ztta/roll_area

    Regards

    Hi

    Roll area is basically used for storing user context. In St02 you can find out the trend of consumption of this area in past.

    If in the log of this cancelled job its showing that the roll area is too small.

    First have a search in st22 dumps these kind of dumps are occuring again and again in the system because of roll area problem or is there any other job which got cancelled because of same reason.

    After that have a look of memory consumption of that job. Check various memory consumption parameters that will shown in dump like roll area, extended memory and heap memory to verify that problem lies with the roll area or why the jobs require such high memory.

    After that you can verify the memory availiablity to increase the roll area.

    ztta/roll_area: Maximum roll area per user context: set it to this value for 64-bit systems: 6500000

    Hope this helps!!

    • Hi

      You can check in ST03n which user is running that job and check the memory consumption of that user like extended memory in memory statistics option. Also check that you have set all the memory parameters according to SAP Notes.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards
