Performance Assurance of SAP Application

Handling large data set for performance testing

One of the main challenges with any SAP Performance project is the availability of large volumes of test data (both Master data and transactional data). The data can be created using SAP transactions which in turn can be automated using Performance test tools, however there is a cost factor involved with licensing of these tools and also the user is expected to have expert in scripting. These challenges can be handled efficiently using inbuilt options available within SAP. We will share our experiences and walk you through the process of automating SAP business transactions by using available inbuilt utilities.
We will explore:
• Best practices to assure Performance of SAP applications
• Automating SAP business transactions with no extra license cost or knowledge of performance scripting
• Monitoring SAP work processes, RFC Calls, lock entries and DB SQL queries
