we are running an upgrade on an ERP system (Linux SLES12 & MaxDB 7.9), with target EHP7ERP6.
For some reason phase ACT_TRANS (activation of customer objects) takes in excess of 10 hours(!!!)
There seem to be no errors in the log files and the system is doing something (activity in SM50 and "top" shows some stuff happenning on OpSys level, too), its just happening very, very slowly.
There is never more than 20% load on system resources (RAM, disk, a.s.o.), no excessive swapping and never more than 2 or 3 disp+work processes active at once.
For me it looks like the system is activating one object at a time and that very, very slowly.
Is there any way to speed this process up?
For this is the test run for your production box and with 10+ hours for that phase alone, I am afraid we can't keep our downtime window.
As alway, thx in advance for all helpful replies.
