    Hi,

    SLOG gives an overall view of all imports running in the SAP System.

    ALOG contains individual return codes for all the transport steps performed in the transport directory.

    A short status report is also entered for each export or import carried out in the transport directory

    [https://websmp130.sap-ag.de/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ==)/bc/bsp/spn/sapnotes/index2.htm?numm=43391]

    [https://websmp130.sap-ag.de/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ==)/bc/bsp/spn/sapnotes/index2.htm?numm=43404]

    You can check after importing the request or for debugging.

    Hope this helsp.

    Hi

    SLOG- The transport control program tp logs all calls and errors in the tp system log.this is used for looking any errors in tp that we face

    ULOG- This file contains individual return codes for all the transport steps performed in the transport directory i.e when we do a transport there are certain steps that are performed,so all the return codes related to each step are logged there

    Let me know of any questions

    Hi,

    These files are one the important log files, to check the heart beat of the SAP server. We can understand by reading this logs files, Why the error has come and we can get an idea to overcome with the error. While doing the version upgrade, we have to check this log files. This will help you to understand the background processing.

    SLOG: This log file provides the information on steps started by tp which have already run or in the process of running. SLOG is updated by tp.

    ALOG: This log file provides the information what actions have performed when tp has started. ALOG also updated by tp. You can find out the tp action in Transport phase log (tp log).

    ULOG: All tp calls executed by the system while doing the transports or patching are contained in ULOG with the relevant call parameters.

    Thanks,

    Nisar
