With the "diagnosis" functions in the Extras menu, you can test the lock management system for errors. There are two test functions:

  • Diagnosis: Checks that the lock server is responding to lock requests. When a user locks an object, the work process in which the user is active and the lock server must communicate to register and subsequently release the lock.

    More information: SAP Lock Concept

  • Diagnosis in VB: Checks that a lock held for a user transaction can successfully be passed to an update server, used during update processing, and released.
