W1 1 traces are active!

We are currently running MaxDB on Red Hat Linux 5.1 for our BW instance.

The output of DBAN.prt gives me "W1 traces are active!" message.

I looked at the Database Trace settings via tx: DB50 and they all say trace is switched off.

I also reviewed OSS Note 837385 under item 11, to deactivate.

Any ideas ?

    can you please show us the output of the following DBMCLI command:

    dbmcli -d <DBSID> -u <dbm-user>,<pw> info STATE -d

    • Hi,

      well, the first DBAnalyzer interval ('0') collects general information of the db instance and will also display whether the database trace is active. This first interval is triggered either daily or whenever the DBAnalyzer is restarted.

      The most obvious reason would be that the database trace was still active during the DBAnalyzer collection of interal 0 on that specific day. After you switched off the trace, only the subsequent interval 0 will not show the message again (that the trace is active).
