2246463 - Performance problems with JobHistory growth and job System_Aggregate_History failing - SAP BPA by Redwood


In BPA/CPS environments with high volume of jobs, a growth in the HistoryJob and HistoryJobParameter tables can cause the following symptoms:

  • CPS/BPA housekeeping job System_Aggregate_HistoryJob can be seen to be running for a long time, many hours/days or is in ERROR status.
  • Reduced performance of SAP CPS/BPA application.
  • System resource utilization is very high


HistoryJob and HistoryJobParameter tables

  • Maintaining a healthy volume of Jobs is critical to ensure optimal performance of the CPS/BPA application.
  • Retention policies (Keep Clauses) should be defined for each job definition where possible.
  • Statistical data about old jobs can exist long after the jobs themselves have been deleted from the CPS/BPA system.
  • This job history statistical data is stored in the tables: HistoryJob and HistoryJobParameter (Database: JCS_HISTORYJOB0 and JCS_HISJOBPARAM0)
  • These tables hold data about old jobs, used in the Scorecard, the 'App Server load balancing' option and Redwood Intelligence module.



This issue can occur in the below versions of SAP CPS and SAP BPA:

  • SAP CPS by Redwood version 8 (M33.x)
  • SAP BPA by Redwood version 9 (9.0.x.x)
  • Running on SAP Netweaver Java 7.x and higher.
