File adapter probem

Hi,

we have file->XI-BPM->RFC scenario. The file adapter has to pick the file the text file, convert it to XML and send it to BPM. we tested this scenario with a 1 MB file . This whole process of picking the file, converting to XML and sending it to BPM was taking around 6 minutes. Whe we monitored the same through SXMB_MONI the satus was 'message waiting in a queue' for about 3 minutes before it was delivered to the BPM.

Please let me know if there is a way to improve this time ?

Regards

Anand

    Hi,

    Interesting one..

    what if you break this process, into Two steps.

    1) Parse your file and make it as XML. (if it is worth developing a program/using a parser). I am not sure, what kind of structure your file has. (may be a logical/better structure helps, in better performance)

    2) XI Processes - send the XML file to the file Adapter,

    so (PROBABLY) performance of file adapter is better.

    hope this helps

    HI,

    Are you using FTP Adapter? If so pls try with NFS. Definitely performance will be better.

    And wrt BPM is concerned, it will take some etxra time. It is prefer to avoid BPM if it is not required.

      Have you noticed how large the converted XML file is. Try to download the data from the message flow.

      If it is too big you might try to reduce the lenght of some of your large tags and use abriviations instead.
