    Goto ST22 --> Goto --> statistics

    I suggest you first check why your programs are going for dump. You can check under st22 --> select your dump --> Under user view and Abap developer view.

    SNAP table cannot become full. Actually, a tablespace where SNAP is stored can become full.. and this is not likely to happen.

    to delete entries, read SAP note 16083.

    look for job name SAP_REORG_ABAPDUMPS which calls program RSSNAPDL.

    you should know this by now?

    ADM100 cover this.

      hi Rahul,

      • The SNAP table is very large. It contains many (very old) records that are no longer required.
      • The SNAP table is stored in PSAPSR3.
      • You can see the size of SNAP table. Go to DB02old > Current Sizes > double click on PSAPSR3 > object name SNAP* > execute.
      • Click on table SNAP > select Detailed Analysis.
