How to reduce the number of Remote Gateway connections from one server

Hi ,

We have an XI 3.0 prod system which is being flooded every month end by the invoices generated in our ERP system and occupying all the gateway connections, what I see is that all the remote gateway connections are being established by our ERP server and still there are many requests waiting at the ERP server and failing.

When we ran the same in our test landscape, the invoices are getting transferred to XI with out any problems, the remote gateway connections are free even when the invocie Volumes transferred are the same in Prod and Test servers.

we are not considerint to Increasing the rdisp/max_gateways as the volumes of invocies transferred are really huge and in one of the test, we observed that when 40 invocies are transferred from ERP, it occupied 40 Remote gateway connections in our XI prod

We are looking for the option similar to our test system of transferring many requests from one connection. Is there any such specific option?

    Dear Santhi,

    every gateway establishes only one connection to another gateway. If there are that many gateway/gateway connections, then you are probably connecting from more than one instance. You could circumvent this, if you use gateway options in the RFC destination being used, as this will force all outgoing RFC calls to go through a single gateway. This will then mean that the system has a single point of access.

    Best Regards,
