=> The check on the issue described in SAP Note 2584388 has been improved.
=> New "Alerts" and new tables in the report-chapter  "Problematic SQL Statements in <;GENERAL;SID>" have been created in order to show clearer how an issue with an expensive SQL statement can be improved.

25.08.2020EW_R3_R3OP SAP System OperationCreated a new check that reports the number ranges that are out of the defined range. I.e. the level might be below the "from" value jor above the "to" value or the "to" level might be below the "from" level. This issue might remain undetected and is running without an issue. Nevertheless, at any point in the future, the business process that uses the number range might run into trouble out of duplicate key issues or overwritten data.
Further, the rating of the number range related checks is propagated to the chapter rating which might become "Red". A Red rating is issued for a non-rolling number range that is exhausted 90% or more. See also the FAQ section of the note mentioned below.
