multiple application servers on development system


forgive my ignorance as I am a developer, so not from a Basis background. Our Basis staff have recently switched from 1 to 2 application servers on our development system. This has meant that there is up to a 2 minute delay in updates occurring due to the synch that needs to take place between the 2 servers. Of course, this hampers the development effort as it means that each time a change is made we need to wait up to 2 minutes to see the impact of the change.

Our Basis staff have told me that 2 minutes is the SAP-recommended synch time as any less could impact upon the whole performance of the development system.

The change has been made in order that each system is the same throughout the landscape (dev, qa, Prod).

Can anyone offer any thoughts on this issue? For example, is it usual practice to have multiple application servers on a development system and if so, is there a way around the delay that happens until the synch takes place?

    Hi ,

    There should not be any delay if all the application serevr has enough resource .

    Because there will be central enqueue for lock management which is responsible for sysn or update.

    best regards,

    Hi Malcom,

    Firstly there is no need to have application servers on development server. Never seen in any landscape so far.

    The delay defined is not SAP standard, the issue could be with the database resources. I feel there are no sufficient resources in the system and hence resulting into delays.

    What actions/changes you do that require up to 2 mins to sync?
