The batch input system keeps a detailed log of each session that is
processed. The log contains not only progress messages from the batch input
system itself, but also error messages from the transactions that are processed.
To analyze an error in a session, you should start by checking the session
log for relevant messages.
A session log is kept only if the session was generated with the KEEP option
or if the session is aborted or contains an error.
Start the batch input management tool: Select
or Logs. Alternate: Enter transaction SM35P. You can display logs from
the standard session overview, or from a special separate transaction for logs.
The log functionality is in each case the same.
To display a log, mark a session and choose Log from the tool bar.
A session log contains any error messages issued by transactions in the
session. It also includes batch input error messages reporting any problems in
running transactions, together with the transaction and screen at which the
problem occurred. Finally, a log contains a set of summary statistics.
