    Hi Nikhil,

    SAP Note 62418 - Network Load of SAPGUI Frontend Communication

    The above mentioned note gives details about the network requirement.

    The note contains the following..

    To calculate the required bandwidth for frontend communication, see the document "Frontend Network Requirements for mySAP Business Solutions" at -> Sizing Guidelines -> Solutions & Platform

    This note includes frontend network load information as of SAP R/3 2.0. The table below contains the average number of kilo bytes per dialog step for the standard application benchmarks SD, FI and MM.

    Release (R/3 / ECC) 2.0 3.0 4.0 4.5 4.6 4.7 5.0 6.0

    kByte per dialog step 1.2 1.4 1.4 1.4 2.6 4.3 4.6 4.6

    Some explanation of the figures:

    - The increase from 4.5 to 4.6 stems from the new frontend architecture with ActiveX, table controls, etc.

    - The increase from 4.6 to 4.7 is occasioned by a change in the MM Standard Application Benchmark business process, so that 4.6 and 4.7 cannot really be compared. The new MM Benchmark is called MMN.

    We strongly recommend to measure the network load of critical business processes. For more information on how to calculate the required network bandwidth see the above mentioned document.

    Hope that helps.
