How to give priority to a single interface regardless of system load

We're in the process of validating our 7.0 system and can't get around the fact that our time critical interfaces are not processed quickly enough when a significant load is dumped on the PI system. We're moving from 2.0 to 7.0 and do not have this issue in 2.0. We've installed 7.0 on the same hardware as our 2.0 system. Our consultants have configured the interfaces to be sent to "high" priority queues but these queues appear to be getting no more time slices of the corresponding software engines than the regular queues.

Is there any other mechanism or server configuration within PI that could be used to help make sure that a given interface will be processed regardless of server load???

Thanks in advance,

Chad

    Since there is a huge change in PI 7.0 from 2.0, so you should first check the hardware requirements to install the PI7.0 In my point of view your hardware is causing a problem.

    We had an SAP XI BASIS consultant complete the sizing exercise and we were told that our existing hardware would not be a problem.

    Current Server Specs:

    CPU - Quad 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon MP

    RAM - 12 Gig

    OS - Windows 2003

    Hi Richardson,

    You need to implement priority queuing mechanism, in which you can give the details of interface specific in that procedure.

    That interface will be processed with priority.

    Give your personal maiID, so that I will send you the procedural document.

    Provide me the rewrd points, if u feel useful.

    Thanks,

    Ramesh

      I think you have not gone through the SDN rules & regulation. Asking or providing the personal information on SDN is prohibited.

      Kindly go through SDN rules once.

    I believe that "priority queuing" is what the consultants put in place for us already with no success.

    Could you supply a link to the procedural document???

      Hi Richard,

      There might be 2 concerns for this issue :

      1. Check the Java performance statistics of the system with the help of Basis guys. They will have already tools for that.

      2. Check whether is there any Java memory leaks. These errors can be found in default trace file in visual amdin/Os level. This will decrease the performance of Java engine.

      Thanks,

      Ramesh

    Hi Chad,

    >>Our consultants have configured the interfaces to be sent to "high" priority queues but these queues appear to be getting no more time slices of the corresponding software engines than the regular queues.

    Have a look at this guide

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/20bb9649-e86e-2910-7aa9-88ed4972a5f6

    Make sure all the steps in this guide are followed correctly. You should be able to get it.

    If still the queues are not priporitized, raise a OSS message with SAP. This might be a bug. If so they will provide you with the correction.

    Regards,

    Jaishankar
