Control-M for SAP
Control-M/CM for SAP
Control-M for SAP version 7.0.00 and higher
Why do I have so many sapcmbe/java processes running on the Control-M Agent machine where I have Control-M for SAP installed?
In case of Unix environments, when running ps -ef|grep java, many entries as follows are shown:
ctmagent 20776 1 0 Jan14 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh ./cm/SAP/exe/sapcmbe.sh start 0
ctmagent 20798 20776 0 Jan14 ? 00:35:31 /opt/ctmagent/ctm/cm/SAP/JRE_64/bin/java -Xms32m -Xmx1024m -Djco.cpic_maxconv=2000 -Djco.trace_level=5 -Djco.trace_path=../../proclog -Djava.library.path=/opt/ctmagent/ctm/./cm/SAP/exe/sapjco -classpath /opt/ctmagent/ctm/./cm/SAP/exe/ctmsap.jar:/opt/ctmagent/ctm/./cm/SAP/exe/sapjco/sapjco3.jar com.bmc.ctm.cmsap.exe.SAPstart 0
In case of Windows environments, when opening the Task Manager, many java.exe processes are running, and when checking the properties of any of these, in the General tab, under location field, the process belongs to the Control-M for SAP module.
This behavior occurs when the recycle feature of the Control-M for SAP is enabled and defined with a very low value. Please refer to Knowledge Article 000073058 for further details about this feature. We recommend to set recycle feature to value of 12 or 24 (value defined in hours).
