How to check the process is running

Hello Gurus,

Is there any way in UNIX at OS level (like tail -f) to find out that the upgrade process is running or stuck, other than the Upgrade Monitor in Upgrade Assistant

Actually we are into process of Upgrade from 4.7 to ECC6 and PREPARE phase is completed successfully.Now we are into upgrade phase in UNIX with Oracle

My concern is to check whether upgrade is runnning or not.

Thanks & Regards.

Rajesh

    Hello,

    In the Upgrade Guide Chapter 7 Troubleshooting:

    SAP ERP Central

    Component 6.0 ABAP

    Support Release 2

    Operating System and Database

    UNIX

    Oracle

    Target Audience

    - System administrators

    - Technology consultants

    Document version: 3.02 ‒ 08/31/2007

    You get this information on page 171 172.

    7.1 Upgrade Logs

    SAPup logs all actions in log files. You can use these log files to monitor your upgrade. If you

    encounter any errors, you can analyze them to help you find a solution.

    Features

    SAPup records all actions in log file SAPup.log in the log subdirectory of the upgrade directory.

    The tp steps are also listed in file SLOG<rel> in the log subdirectory of the upgrade directory.

    Additional detailed logs are usually written for these tp steps.

    A simple method of monitoring the progress of all tp-driven phases is to use tail to monitor the

    SLOG log. To do this, open another terminal window and enter the following command:

    tail -f <upgrade directory>/log/SLOG<rel>

    Each tp-driven phase is divided up into a number of different steps whose start and end times are

    noted in the SLOG log. The start and end of a phase are indicated by the lines START put and STOP put.

    Best Regards,

    Erick Ilarraza
