    Hello Diana,

    You don't need to do any thing special. because, for Program buffer (PXA) which is the most critical buffer for SAP system performance, SAP takes care of this to keep the hit ratio high even after instance restarts. To do this, SAP writes names of the programs contained within the PXA during shutdown to a file. During restart, this file (PXASTAT/PXANEW in the work directory of the instance) is read and the listed programs are put into the PXA )

    This has also been described in SAP Note 23642.

    Regards,

    Debasis.
