SAP Performance Slowdown

Hello,

 

I am experiencing an issue with the SAP application where the performance appears to get increasingly slower with each transaction executed by the bot.

 

We are using SAP transactions MIRO, MIGO, ME21N for this process.

 

The first iterations of the loop appear to happen with good performance, but further iterations seem to get slower until eventually SAP crashes. For example:

 

Transactions 1-10: 1 min each

Transactions 10-15: 2 min each

Transactions 15-25: 5 min each

Transactions 25+: the bot is probably going to crash somewhere around here because of unresponsive SAP application.

 

I have tried implementing login/logouts between a set amount of iterations, but this makes no difference.

The only way that the performance resumes is to end the bot runner session and re-deploy the bot.

 

This does not happen when a user is doing the same transactions manually.

 

I have seen someone else having this problem on another site: https://forum.uipath.com/t/robot-slows-down-after-several-iterations-in-sap-gui/486520/4, which suggests this is a general RPA problem.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Adam

Hi @AWilson,

Have you tried adding a delay between actions to see if that works out?
