    Hi Midhun

    What is load balancing in the RFC client parameter in th RFC adapter ?

    Load balancing option will allow you to configure more than one J2EE instance that your SAP system supports to balance the load of incoming messages through RFC

    Refer the thread to get details of configuration

    RFC Sender (XI 3.0, SP14) Load Balancing doesn't work

    When is it used?

    Load balancing is used when you have a sender RFC adapter communication involved.

    Why is it used ?

    Maximum possible number of initial connections required between sender system and adapter. This value is limited internally to a maximum of 50. With this more number of RFC connections slows down the system. In this scenario load balancing is required.

    Thanks

    hi,

    we use load balancing for better performance . if you select the load balancing option in RFC adapter it asks what other system details for RFC data for better perfomance as number calls increase. when the no. of calls increase it distrubes among these system to load balance it.

    well we use load balancing when the sender RFC adapter is using the messaging system.

    For more details on load balancing please refer this

    Hi Midhun,

    When we using the Load Balance in RFC adapter, the RFC channel can register the multiple processing threads at the Client Systems gateway.

    The main use of load balancing is to improve the performace by optimizing the resources.

    XI, load balancing is especially useful in inbound request processing.

    You can use outbound load balancing if the receiver application or component is prepared for and can benefit from load alancing (for example, a receiving IDoc or RFC application is addressed using its message server to distribute the load).

    for more clarification please go throgh the following link.

    Thanks&Regards
