In SM21, the Syslog does not display any information. Instead you see the message 'only_one_SysLog_file was skipped' at the top.
There is a problem or corruption in the system log file SLOGXX (XX is the system number).
- Stop the SAP system
- Delete the files SLOGXX and SLOGOXX in the directory /usr/sap/SID/INSTANCE/log
- Clear the shared memory (execute SAP OS command 'cleanipc XX remove' where XX is instance system number) and restart the system
- After the system restart a new SLOGXX file will be automatically created again by the kernel
- Also see note 45580:
45580 - How are syslog files deleted?
