ABAP Cache Not Refreshing

Hi,

 

We recently patched our DEV system from NW7.02 Supp Pack 10 to NW7.02 Supp Pack 12. Since then we have had problems with the ABAP cache. Not sure whether this is as a result of the patch (i.e. it contained a bug) or there was an issue applying the patch. What is happening is as follows:

 

* Activate a change to a Configuration Directory object

* View Cache Notifications

* Two lines displayed as follows:

As you can see (if you zoom in on the image) the ABAP Cache has not updated. If you click on the 'Problems' tab there is one associated error which says:

 

Unable to notify integration runtime (ABAP) of data changes

http connection to "http://devserver/sap/xi/cache?sap-client=001" returns the status code "500" in response

 

If I go to a browser and enter the URL above I am able to refresh the cache i.e. the cache notifications tab shows 2 green lights. For info I have checked the HMI connection in SM59 and it gives "Internal Server Error 500" which I am led to believe shows it is working.

 

Any ideas why this patching exercise could have caused this caching issue ?

 

Thanks,

 

PaulC.

    Hi,

    try this,

    goto SXI_CACHE --> goto-->Adapter Engine Cache--> delete the entry and made a full cache refresh.

    check whether the status is green.

    also perform an SLDCHECK and check if all status are green.

     

    Let me know.

    Regards

      Hi,

       

      Thanks for replying.

       

      I am currently able to refresh the cache manually by entering the URL in my first post. What I need to try and establish is why it is not refreshing automatically ?

       

      Thanks,

        its related to a  basis issue because the cache refresh has by default an schedule, contact your basis team to check it

          Hi,

           

          In our live environment when I activate a change to a configuration directory object the ABAP cache is refreshed immediately. I assume this refresh is triggered by me activating the changed object. Are you saying this is not the case and that there is actually a scheduling element to the ABAP cache refresh ?

            every time you activate and object in the Integration Directory will refresh the ABAP Cache. this refreshing is tigth to the RFC destination LCRSAPRFC.

            sometimes, for server issues the refresh is not performed once you activated but is rare, in this cases you have the possibility to force it manually as i suggest before.

             

            confirm me a doubt. If you refresh it manually it works?

            you have some possilities to check this issue

            1. check the steps a proposed to you in a previous Post
            2. Perform a CPA Chache and check whether its works, if not check whether the user PIDIRUSER or PIREPUSER or PIRWBUSER are Blocked

            Check that and let me know

            Regards
