Firefighter Background job cancelled

Problem statement:

The firefighter job runs once in every 15 or N minutes span of time. Each time when the  job runs, it will get the input from /virsa/zffnotif table to obtain the starting time frame to generate the log report.

The last time the job ran successfully was on  XX-12-20XX after which some mass change activity has been done by using firefighter id which generated huge amount of data. So the job gets canceled by trying to capture this high volume of data starting from XX-12-20XX date to today date.

Important Note:

We should not perform any mass change activity by using firefighter ID. Refer SAP note: 1378276

1378276 – Mass Transaction support through Firefighter


We have found one SAP note related to this case. Here we just change the table entries to recent date and time stamp. So the data captured time span is reduced to minimum level and then got completed without any issues.

Please follow the steps to edit the table entries to recent time stamp. SAP Note: 1444468

1444468 – TSV_TNEW_PAGE_ALLOC_FAILED Background job cancelled
Please let me know in case of any queries.
