SAP Power LPAR's SUSE Linux 11 SP4 network performance slow

Hi Team ,

We have SUSE LInux LPAR's which all are running in the Power 822 ,These LPAR's are hosted in the AIX VIO servers . As of now the " niping "values from SAP level is not good values , It shows around 360 msec. They want to reduce less than 100msec. Please let us know any kernel parameter or network parameters can be tuned to reduce "niping" values . Any parameter available to increase network parameters

    Hi Sebastian,

    unfortunately, you've not posted that many details of your test. Where did you run niping, how does it connect (network- and "SAP Router"-wise) to the target instance? The LPARs you're trying to optimize, are those running SAP applications or are these SAP routers?

    As a first step, have you checked the IP-layer response time of the (client to SAP server) connection (or all individual connection legs, if crossing one or more SAP routers), via a traditional ICMP echo (AKA "ping")? If you face high network-added delay because of i.e. small-bandwidth or high latency network connections, that's what you should try to improve first.

    Regards,
    J
