CC v5.2 - Multiple background threads

Right now we are limited to running 3 background jobs at any given time due to a background thread configuration option in "Performance Tuning" that is set at 3 which the SAP default value.

We need to run a slew of reports right now to prepare for our year-end audit, and are looking to increase the value from 3 to 10. If we make that configuration change (for # of background threads), what are the negative impacts if any?

Thanks ahead of time for your assistance

    Hi

    No of background jobs would increase

    subsequently resource constraints may come up,

    Jobs would go on to delay if the BTC processes are not available, System load will increase and inturn the performance may get affected

    Hope this helps

    Thanks

    Please consider you hardware resources before increasing it.

    Dear Roddy,

    As per the SAP standards for BG jobs, 4GB of RAM is sufficient for 3 jobs working together at the same time.

    Now you can surely increase the number of threads and the only impact you can see for this is that effectively, the time for each job will increase a bit as each job will consume equal resources while running.

    Thus you can say:

    Time taken for job to complete is directly proportional to RAM and also to the number of threads.

    Regards,

    Hersh.
