The Short Dump Watch App provides a summary of the short dump data that has been retrieved for the specified RFC Destination.
A user with LiveCompare Editor privileges must prepare this App by making sure that short dump data is available for the ‘SAP System’ RFC Destination. See the ‘Prerequisites’ section below for details.
Before running the Short Dump Watch App for the first time, you will need to make sure that short dump data is available on the RFC Destination selected for the ‘SAP System’ system. Select the RFC Destination in the LiveCompare hierarchy and click the SDD tab. Select the number of months of data to retrieve, then click ‘Update Data’. The short dump data may also be retrieved using a schedule. See the Retrieving Short Dump Data help topic for details.
Running the App
To run the Used Objects App, select the App from the Apps screen and create an App variant. Set the ‘SAP System’ field to the RFC Destination for the system to be analyzed and click ‘Run’. When the variant has completed, its results may be accessed from the App Cockpit screen.
The Impact App generates a Dashboard report, which includes the following charts:
- The ‘Top N by Type’ pie chart displays the top 5 short dumps grouped by type.
- The ‘Top N by Program’ pie chart displays the top 5 short dumps grouped by their associated Program.
- The ‘Top N by Include’ pie chart displays the top 5 short dumps grouped by their associated Include.
- The ‘Top N by User’ pie chart displays the top 5 short dumps grouped by the user who generated the short dump.
- The ‘By Month’ column chart displays the number of short dumps generated in each reported month.
- The ‘By Time of Day’ column chart displays the number of short dumps generated in each hour of the day.
The Dashboard report also includes links to the following reports:
