Our SAP file system is filling up because initially it was defined too small. What are the non-required files that...
can be deleted from the SAP system? We are using HP-UX NetWeaver2004s on an Oracle database.
The files that can be deleted are mentioned below.
- Offline Redo log files
Backup them and then delete
- Old spool and log files
They are not necessary for R/3 functions and should be deleted regularly by scheduling a periodic batch job.
- File name "CORE" (Unix only)
The R/3 System work directory (e.g. /usr/sap/c11/D00/work ) often contains a file called 'core' from previous program terminations. This file may be deleted at any time.
- Old ABAP/4 trace files.
Use Transaction SE30 to delete the files
- Old output requests
They are stored on the data directory as files SP*.
Remember that deleting these files is not a permanent solution. You should increase the file system sizes.
