BPM waits longer than it should

Greetings

Im having a problem with a BPM.This BPM waits for two idocs, its configured to wait for the second idoc 1 minute, and It does, but when I transported it to the production server it takes 45 minutes.

do you know how come the 1 minute time out gets fired only 44 minutes later than it should?

thanks in advance for your help

any help would be appreciated

    Can you try a service market place search for some SAP notes on this issue? I think I have seen a few notes on the wait step "misbehaving" in XI.

    Hi,

    in tcode SWU3 you can configure under Schedule Background Job for Missed Deadlines a time interval how often deadlines should be checked.

    This could be the reason.

    The wait step in BPM isn't accurate. You'd better build in a wait step (user defined function) in your mapping. Create a simple dummy mapping (message type A to message type A) for this purpose.

    Pause for 10 seconds:

    try {

    Thread.currentThread().sleep(10000);

    }

    catch (InterruptedException ie) {

    }

    return (a);

      thanks guys

      I didnt knew that bpm time is not accurate

      The proble was in part solved taking some load of the server, cleaning queues and stoping some bach jobs

      the time went down to 3 minutes on the faster execution

      Im gonna keep trying configuration to make it faster, if not Ill go with some redesigning of the BPM to make the change the way in wich the bmp waits the second idoc

      thanks a lot
