RE: Workprocess in PRIV mode

Hi all,

We are facing problem in SAP. The performance of the system is very low and all the dialog workprocess are entering 'PRIV' mode in 'ONHOLD' state.

Can you please say me what are the possible reasons for process to enter 'PRIV' mode?

Thanks in advance

A work process enters PRIV mode when either a) extended memory is exhausted or b) the process has used the amount of memory specified in ztta/roll_extension.

You can check this in SM50 by doubleclicking on the process in PRIV mode to determine if it is because you are using too much total memory (~2GB is too much), or because something else used up all your extended memory and this is just a by product of running out of extended memory.
