Extractors generate system load. Ensure that extractors are only active when you actually use the scenario for which the data is collected.


  • You have started the Extraktor Framework management, in the SAP Solution Manager Management work center, (Solution Manager Administration) in the Landscape or Infrastructure view.
  • In the Extractor Framework tab, you have selected Refresh, to display the current extractor information.
  • You have chosen Change.


Data collection ends when you deactivate an extractor. The data is not available in the work center (e.g. Root Cause Analysis).

Active extractors are indicated by a switched-on light-bulb.

  1. Select the active extractor.
  2. Choose Deactivate.
