Important note: This Web log is intended for two purposes to make sure that you are aware of the online documentation that is available on this topic and to solicit your feedback. Sometimes one of my technical colleagues will step into the chain and provide some tuning suggestions, but that is not the intention of this discussion, as the topic is too broad. Please also remember to use OSS to report your performance problems, particularly if they are critical to your production environment!
Your Resources: The Business Information Warehouse path in SDN has a Quick Link to the “BW Performance Tuning Knowledge Center”. This section of SDN contains presentations, documents, and eLearning on performance topics in SAP BI. You can also find a great deal of information at the /BW alias in the SAP Service Marketplace under the Performance folder. If you havent seen the materials in these sites yet, I think you will find them very useful.
Your Feedback: Wed like to know your biggest challenges with performance. In order to keep the input manageable, lets focus on your one or two biggest issues. Be as specific as you can e.g., if you have issues with data loads to ODS objects but not to InfoCubes, make sure to specify that the performance problem is with the ODS objects. Also, include your release number since of course that can make a significant difference.
Thanks for your help!
