Hi All,

I am new to this ABAP field..

I know how to do SQL trace ....But what I am not getting is " <b>HOW CAN WE TELL FROM THE OUTPUT OF SQL TRACE, THAT THIS IS THE CAUSE OF SLOW PERFORMANCE OF A REPORT</b>" Based on what are we determining the performance?

Can Anybody help me here pls?............

    Hi Kelly,

    if you really have no idea, why a report is slow, then you have to start with SE30 (runtime analysis).

    There are three bargraphs: ABAP / database / system.

    System should be more or less nothing.

    If ABAP is bigger than database: have a look at slow abap-statements (normally operations with internal tables: read, delete, loop where,...); classic reason: to much reads without binary search / sorted table / hashed table use.

    If database is bigger than ABAP: have a look at your SQL statements. If you can see already forgotten key fields, fine - otherwise SQL trace will bring help in analyzing.

    A SQL trace itself says nothing about overall performance (which is done by runtime analysis), only about database part. But 'normally' programmers have their ABAP-part in control and struggle only with slow selects: that's the reason, why often SQL trace is used immediately.

    I hope, this brings a little bit light in your question,

    Hi Kelly

    Try <b>"Runtime Analysis Tool"</b> instead. The transaction code is <b>"SE30"</b>. There you can analyse database calls, etc... and see what takes how much time during runtime.

    From the SQL trace you can find,

    1. are there recurrsive database calls

    2. What index a particular selecte statement is using

    3. What is the cost per database read

    4. Which database read is taking more time, etc
