    Hi all,

    I got the solution.

    While activating the trace i have to give the full day and time. Means i have t give the details in the following way.

    From - the particular date / Time - 00:00:00

    To - the particular date / Time - 23:59:59

    If we give the above inputs, the trace will work. But just one week before there were no situations like this.

    But now it is only working like this. I am wondering how this happened?

    HI Praveen,

    probably it is something as explained in SAP Note 516398 (Trace display in ST01 does not work correctly).

    Best regards,
    Andreas

    Hello Praveen

    If possible, try to use ST12 instead of ST01, check if the outcome is different and you improve stability.

    Hi Praveen,

    Did someone else activated the trace in the meantime? There can be a situation that the trace you're trying to look at was overwritten by the last activated trace.

    If yes, you can go to administration section in ST01 (Shift+F7) to increase file size and count.

    Hi Praveen,

    It can be done by ST01 --> Administration (Shift+F7) in the next screen adjust below two parameters

    I guess max file size is 100 mb that is allowed.

    Also, more the big size more time it takes to read the file and you may also receive memory dumps while retrieving the trace data.

      Hi Praveen,

      There is no thumb rule of setting the file size. But if it is production system than 30-40 mb file is more than enough.

      You need to also take the side effects of increasing the file size into consideration. (mentioned in my earlier response)

      Also, I guess you will need to restart the system to bring the change into effect.
