Scheduling System Logging in the Background


You also have the option to schedule system logging as a background job. There are two ABAP programs available for this:

  • For creating a local system log: RSLG0000
  • For creating a central system log (not on Windows NT and AS/400 platforms: RSLG0000


  1. Execute one of the above programs in the ABAP Editor (Tools ® ABAP Workbench), set conditions if necessary and save your selection as a variant.
  2. Schedule this variant as a background job using the transaction for Background Processing (Tools ® CCMS ® Jobs ® Definition).


The programs create either a printout of the system log or a spool request, depending on the settings you have selected.
