Table name: /USI/BAL_LV_RTIM Maintained via: SM30

The logging API can produce a huge amount of log data, that needs to be deleted as soon, as nobody needs it anymore. The SAP Standard deletion report SLG2 will delete Logs, as soon, as they are expired. You can maintain the retention periods for your logs in table /USI/BAL_LV_RTIM.
