1867132 - Performance issue in transaction KE13N


  • You perform a Flexible upload using transaction KE13N. The execution of this transaction is endless (performance) and it may fail with time_out error/shortdump: TSV_TNEW_PAGE_ALLOC_FAILED. You have used a big file for your uploading. 

    In some cases, this is not only about the number of lines in the upload file, but rather about the overall size of the data including the existing data in the database.
    The upload functionality reads also the data from the database to calculate the delta for the final posting. It reads the superset of data provided in the upload file
    As there are many characteristics defined as lead columns in the layout which can have many distinct values (Product, Customer), it reads all values for these characteristics. So it can then happen, that there are too much data to be processed.

  • TIME_OUT dump during KE13N with error that program "RK2BXXXX_READ_COST" has exceeded the maximum permitted runtime.
