Background jobs behaviour after a stopsap/startsap

Hello,

I am wondering how background jobs behave in case of long stopsap period.

I have checked in sm37, my colleagues do not set "No Start after" time.

I will stop sap on Friday night and restart it on Saturday morning.

Will all the jobs that were released for this inactive time window

be started just after starting sap?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Hi ,

    If you do not suspend the jobs ,they will get queued for running once the SAP system is up .

    Please always follow the suspend /start the jobs before you stop/start SAP.

    BTCTRNS1 : tempararoly suspends all the released jobs in SAP.

    BTCTRNS2 : It will release all the jobs which are suspended by the earlier report.

    Hello Benoît,

    This is my personal experience that all jobs which are active at the time of system shut down gets canceled and the b/g jobs which are scheduled during the maintenance window will be queued and gets started as soon as the SAP system starts according to availability of b/g work processes.

    So its better to set "No Start after or suspend the B/G jobs for the maintenance widow.

    Thanks,

      Hi Gurbir,

      To think this is load specific is incorrect! Support packs can change the reports used by administration jobs. So you should suspend them as well. BTCTRNS1 would suspend everything except RDDIMPDP which is used to trigger import and subsequent jobs used for method execution,conversion etc.

    Hi,

    May be you can suspend all the background jobs before stopping SAP using BTCTRNS1 and again release all the jobs after starting SAP using BTCTRNS2.

    Thanks,

    Hi All,

    Can you please help me understanding the use of

    BTCTRNS1 and BTCTRNS2 in process chain scheduling and de-scheduling. As if we say the

    BTCTRNS1 will suspend all the job which are released then what about the job which are still not released. Is that means that those job will run as usual. If no shall we good to use these TWO program in our production system for de-scheduling and scheduling of Process chain. As scheduling and de-scheduling huge number of PC is really time taking.

    Any quick answer on this will be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.😊

    Kind Regards,

    Chandan Praharaj.
