Printing in SAP seemed too slow

Hi All,

We're using SAP system for more than a year now. Everything was working quite fine until these past few weeks where my users are encountering slow responses with regards to printing of their documents. I've set a background job that will automatically remove all spooled requests older than 2 days. Likewise, I check the filesystem utilization and they are just 0f 70% and lower.

Can anybody help me where to check?

Thanks

    Hi Aurelio Tadlas,

    encountering slow responses with regards to printing of their documents

    I want to know solw performance with all the printouts or any particular tcodes?

    I guess issue with particular tcodes, not every printout.

    Generally abapers will configure output type for particular printouts (for example the tcode FBCJ). Your issue may related to the output type program. it may need to fine tune. You can trace this through ST05 - Performance trace.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Nagendra.

      Hi,

      Pls check the st03n spool statistics which should indicate the avg wait if this is high and in the workload overview if the average time is more than 1 secs.

      This would indicate that your system has less number of spool work process allocated and also do a bit of tuning if necessary if your environment has lots of spool outputs being generated.

      Further do a review of the type of spool servers/ spool type being used still meets your requirement.

      Cheers Sam
