Fire Figther jobs issues

Continuation with the blog on installing FF, I am posting some issues we might face with FF jobs.

Fire Figther jobs were failing with dump SYSTEM_NO_ROLL


We might think that the memory parameters or system is not tuned to handle the load


The spool above shows that data was pulled from Dec 2011 till date.  This was caused by a wrong entry in table /VIRSA/ZFFNOTIF

As per note 1444468, we need to modify the entry NOTIFTYPE = 2 in table /VIRSA/ZFFNOTIF to current date. The date was pointing to 2011 as below


As the LAST_RUN_DATE has an old date for NOTIFTYPE = 2, you will need to update it. The job /VIRSA/ZVFATBAK is trying to retrieve information from 05.12.2011 to the current date. Please, update the LAST_RUN_DATE for NOTIFTYPE = 2 from 05.12.2011 to today’s date.

This change will resolve the issue and /VIRSA/ZVFATBAK will run normally again.

The table cannot be edited using sm30(if maintenance view is not created) or se11, we need to use the debugging mode to edit the entries/

Double click on code and change to EDIT as below


Click on pencil

Click F8 and we get below screen


Edit the date to current date and time and save.


This fixed the issue with the memory dump. We also faced issue with runtime of the FF jobs which I will post in the next blog.
