RZ20 Service "<SID>\Background\...\BackgroundService" missing

Hello experts,

we are facing the issue, that in rz20 the service "<SID>\Background\...\BackgroundService" is missing, which gives information about the Background-Job environment.

I already tried the reset via RZ21 a few times, but didn't help.

Any other ideas for this?

Kind regards

Hello Christian,

for which slots there is no more space? You have several possibilities:

1. Increase the value for alert/MONI_SEGM_SIZE on the affected instance --> disadvantage is, that after a while the space will be consumed again, if you did not find the causeer

2. If you can identify the monitor consuming the space, then you can check, what creates this monitor (log attributes lines? alerts?) and if this monitor is OK, or if this monitor has a  problem. If you are not using this monitor then you can disable it and delete its structure in RZ20.

Is this a BW system? In a BW system the process chains monitor can consume to much space.

3. You could move the background context in RZ21 to the instance, which has enough space in monitoring segment --> disadvantage is, that the context will be fixed to a segment of one instance, and if this instance is not available, the monitor will not be available too.
