import abap on ECC6 EhP 4 takes along time

Hello experts,

we're running SAP ECC 6 EHP4 and solman 7 Ehp1 fresh installation on IBM P720 with powervm. Both LPAR allocated with 8 CPUs, memory 8 GB, swap 30 G on AIX 6.1 TL5 - DB2. Now it's running phase import abap. But, we see it was nothing activity since running 1, waiting 1, completed 1, total 30 for almost 3 hours. From AIX we checked CPU, Memory, Disk no high activity. Is it normal and we just need to waiting until it completed or something wrong that we need to run reinstall? Thanks for any helps.

regards

Erwin Wijaya

    how many parallel process you have used for the installation? Looks like only one. You should have used multiple as you have 8 CPU then you can use 8 parallel installation process.

    The installation is now running, looks like you have to wait. Also have you followed the AIX related notes from the installation guide?

    8 GB is not really much memory for an ABAP + Java installation, for SolMan I'd consider it the absolute minimum to work with the system.

    The import may create indexes on the database, check the latest logfiles in the installation directory to find out what the system is doing.

    I tried to install DB2 windows 2008 r2 Solman. My first try as I am AFS consultant and not Basis. The first time it took 3 hrs for 4 jobs for ABAP import. I stopped and redid. the parameters I changed are "No of parallel process" = 8, since I have 4 CPUs so 4x2 and page sizing to >25000- 50000 MB, an dit was 3hrs 22 jobs, 4 jobs are still running. Lets see how it goes

      During the import you will find this file "import_monitor_cmd.properties" inside you sapinst_dir

      if you only see 1 process please increase it to 6..

      with 1 running process your import will be very slow.

      firys on the aix just run ps -ef | grep R3load to check how may r3load process is running.
