With the recent release of SAP Lumira 2.1, SAP has come up with multiple new capabilities & improvements for existing features delivered as part of Lumira 2 with much more stability & responsiveness for SAP Lumira applications.


This blog provides a high-level overview of various performance improvements that can be expected:

  • Leveraging “Processing group support” in Lumira 2.1 (similar to Design studio / Designer) which enables the database queries to run parallel and get data faster in Lumira to provide better responsiveness for:
    • Opening of document (~10%).
    • Loading of Visualisation/Charts in a Story faster due to parallel data fetch compared to earlier release.
    • Better Page & Story navigation (~10%). Even better can be achieved with higher user load scenario.


  • Live Connections to SAP Hana & SAP BW have improved response for prompts.


  • Improved filter/drill/prompts responses can be achieved.


  • List of Values (LOV) based filtering have improved drastically with this release.


With this release of continuous improvement, better stability can be expected with Lumira 2.1 along with below recommendation:


Along with these recommendation, I would strongly recommend to use and follow below:

  1. Lumira 2 Sizing guide available under References section in Help portal of SAP Lumira along with SAP Quick Sizer.

    one additional comment. If the RFC Connection to BW is not released automatically in BW (TC smgw) this Note could help.

    2078698 – RFC connections in BW are not automatically closed when viewing Design Studio reports from BI LaunchPad –> should also work for Lumira 2.x (LumiraServer).

    Maybe after this it is not necessary to increase the number of connection on like described above (2579319 – Lumira throws JCO_ERROR_COMMUNICATION error for “max no of 202 conversations exceeded” for BW Connectivity.)

    Kind Regards
