Improving the performace of RM06INP0 program

Hi all,

I need your help in solving an issue. In our project the requirement is to calculate the cost price of articles in inforecords using the RM06INP0 program. We have applied an OSS note 978131 to improve the performance of this program when running for 300000 articles..But the improvement is not good enough.It currently takes 5 hours to completely process these number of articles. Can anyone suggest what should we do to reduce the time to 1-1.5 hours as we need to put the program in a batch schedule and that is the maximum time we can allow this program to run? Thanks a lot !

    what about a bigger machine?

    who else than SAP can change the source code in this program to make it faster? Hence you should open a message to SAP, tell what notes you already implemented and what their effect was and that it is still not good.

    The issue with this program (RM06INP0) generally lie in variants used

    and the amount of info records used. You might consider not getting the

    system to gather all the info records if not all are to be updated.

    You might also try archive obsolete info records from your system. Check

    how many entries are in EINE, this is where all the data for purchasing

    info records are stored. If you have many info records you consider

    splitting the job into smaller pieces (variants) and doing these at

    different days.

      Nadia thanks a lot for your reply-Thing is I have run this program in background with the 'No date Check' checkbox as checked and without entering any article/vendor values so I think it is picking up all the inforecords in the system in which there has been a change of cost price.Till now it has run for more than 5 hours(there are 380697 records in EINE).But or requirement permits only 1-1.5 hours run.I have already applied the note 978131. As per Jurgen's suggestion think we need to approach SAP to provide us a better solution.
