2436955 - How to collect and analyze traces using ST12 (single transaction analysis)


You wish to analyze the performance of a particular transaction/report/job and would like to use transaction ST12 (also known as Single Transaction Analysis).

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.



Transaction ST12 is available as of basis release 4.6B. It is delivered via the addon ST-A/PI (Application servicetools for EarlyWatch/GoingLive, see SAP Note 69455).

The ST-A/PI version should be 01F* or higher.

The feature to switch on the ABAP trace for another user requires:

  • on basis 4.6*: Addon ST-A/PI >= 01F*, Kernel 46D patchlevel >= 1805
  • on basis 6.x: Addon ST-A/PI >= 01G*, Kernel 640 patchlevel >= 83
  • on basis 7.0 or higher: Addon ST-A/PI 01G*
