19 Jan (9:30am EST; 3:30pm CET) Interpreting traces collected with the Single Transaction Analysis tool (ST12)

[This webinar is hosted by SAP Product Support, continuation of ABAP Troubleshooting call from Dec 5, 2016]

The Single Transaction Analysis tool, transaction ST12, allows support professionals to collect both ABAP traces and performance traces with an integrated user interface. It offers different methods for tracing and also allows the recording of traces of ABAP transactions, ABAP reports, Webdynpro pages, BSP pages and background jobs. The traces collected by this tool can be used to investigate code errors and performance problems. This training will show you how to interpret the traces collected with ST12 as well as how to deal with common problems you may see while using ST12.

    Todays call on interpreting ST12 was very interesting!

    This are some keywords I noted down whilst listening to it:

    ABAP Trace
    – Texts
    – Changed on, changed by
    – by ModUnit
    – bottom-up Call hierarchy for entry
    – (+number of calls)
    – Type: DB -> Jump to SQL Summary

    Performance Traces
    -Aggregate:
    — Structure-Identical
    — Value-Identical
    — Table Access
    —Component Hierarchy
    (ABAP-Trace: Show/hide Application Component)

    Thanks Marco for giving us this insights and thanks Jason for making us aware of it here!

      Hello Joachim,

      I need to use ST12 to optimise performance of a transaction. Do you have an idea if there is a Blog written on this 19th Jan Webinar on St12

      Thanks

      Smriti

    Hey Jason,

    why didn’t the  19-Jan call on ST12 get its own blog entry, like all the other ones?

    I think it still makes sense, maybe you can create one?

    Such a blog would be the right place for comments like the one above I had to give here. (Also, I would like to comment a link to a recent ST22-Dump-Question I have).

    Also, I think  you need a place to provide the recording as well?

     

    Thanks a lot!

    Joachim

        Hi Tammy,

        I think not exactly – if I got it right, your blog is a review of the Dec 5th 2016 Community-Call on ST12 (“how to collect traces”), announced at https://blogs.sap.com/2016/11/23/dec-5-sap-community-calls-abap-troubleshooting/ (also linked in the table above).

        But there was a follow-up call to that on, on the 19th Jan 2017 (“ST12 – how to interpret traces”). -> this called is featured in the list above, however it doesn’t link to a blog post (link goes to a webinar registration). And such a Blog is what I’m looking for!

        Still, thanks for you link, didn’t know it, and I think it’s quite useful!

        best

        Joachim

          Ah – I didn’t know about the January 19th one – it wasn’t on my calendar – so I will defer to Jason re: blog.  Thank you for clarifying, Joachim

      Hi Joachim, and James, sorry for the very late reply! The Jan 19th call was hosted by SAP Product Support. That’s why I didn’t post a seperate blog for it. I will ask for the recording of the call, and post it above.

      Regards,
      Jason

      Hi Jason,

       

      Thanks for asking for the recording! (I saw it live, but I’m sure others will benefit from it!)

       

      I’m not sure if I got the connection right, though:

      Usually, a SAP Mentor is hosting the talk – in that case, you will create a blog for it.

      But this time (Jan. 19th), “SAP Product Support” was the host, so you didn’t create a blog for that?

       

      Taking the perspective of a “consumer” of those talks, I would wish that there’s a blog for each talk, regardless of the host.

      (That blog would serve – amongst others* – as a platform for comments on that talk).

       

      *Another benefit: A new blog will show up in RSS-Clients, making interested users (that might not check this blog regularly) aware of it.

       

      Hope I’m getting my point across without sounding demanding or anything, really appreciate what you’re doing for us!

       

      Best

        Hey Jason,

        a quick idea: maybe you could re-schedule a similar session (on “Interpreting ST12 traces”), as it was really interesting and helpful for me?! (I’m really happy I got to watch tat session live!)

        Maybe this time with a SAP Mentor as a host (as usual), so we wouldn’t have to go through the troubles described above?!

        Best

          +1 Joachim – leave it to you to come up with an excellent and totally logical solution! Sometimes an obvious solution is not so easy to see when I’m sitting ‘in the box.’ I will contact Marco.

          Thanks,
          Jason

            Hi Jason,

            any news about this? I would also like to join a second webinar with Marco about analysing the traces. I loved the first part, but missed the second. And it would be quite helpful at the moment.

             

            Thanks & Cheers,

            Martin
