2996445 - ST03N - Increase of number of steps since Kernel upgrade


There was a Kernel upgrade to at least 7.53 and ever since there is an observation of changes in the statistical information in the transaction ST03/ST03N.

The process is the same as before the Kernel upgrade - like there are no more of start processes of jobs/steps and there are no changes in executing more RFCs -  only STAD records are increasing after the Kernel upgrade (while gross time and other characteristics remain the same).
