SAP Application Server Load Balancing


Good Day,

We are currently using Redwood CPS as our Enterprise scheduler. My question revolves around load balancing amongst SAP application servers. As an example, we have 3 application servers for BIP – let’s call them 0081, 0082 and 0083. Here is a couple of things that I am seeing. At first, it appears that the workload is being evenly distributed amongst all 3 App servers but then a cyclic job which runs every 5 minutes seems to grab a hold of a particular App server (say 0082) and will continue to submit work only to that Apps server for 30 to 40 minutes while the other 2 App servers sit idle. Then, this same pattern will repeat itself with another App server (say 0083) for 20 minutes or so and so on. Now on the Redwoods side of the house, I have all 3 App servers configured the same way. Load Balancing is enabled and the Multiplier and Thresholds are identical for all 3 servers. Not sure what to do at this point. It is not a game breaker or anything – I’m just curious. Thanks in advance for any help. Take care.
