Performance analysis of customized tcode

This blog gives a small insight into working on performance related issues. There will be many reasons for performance degradation and once such reason is below.

Users complained that tcode ZSDG_VIA was taking 5 to 6 minutes to process data which normally takes around1 minute. Checked sm66 and found the process is accessing table EDIDC. Updated the statistics for table EDIDC from DB20 but still performance was bad.

DB14 logs below

  • Good Work Ranjith .. I felt the blog ended can come up with some general transcations and procedures to check for performance related issues in ABAP System

    Kind Regards,


    • Hello Jacob,

      Thank you. I will definitely write something on st12, sm30, st05 which are all performance related transactions and their procedures very soon.


      • Performance issues in custom code 90% of the time are related to expensive SQL statements or poor use of indexes which should be spotted during QA testing.

        I agree with Jacob, you should add your own input into the blog and close it with your recomendations.

        After all if the blog does not reflect your opinion it's simply a document.

        Regards, Juan
