Select statements used in POSDM Z-implementation

Dear Expert ,

The code being run by  ABAP team is hitting an upper limit.  We had reduced the transaction volumes to 10000 per batch and appears to be running OK. But when loads increase the system deteriorates.  we need to investigate the following.  

  1. 1.       The SQLs are using the indexes. ( Cost Optimizer). need to  re-create all the missing indexes, If any. ( else SQL goes for a table scan.) Need to knw How big this table is and whether an index has an impact is another issue…)
  2. 2.       Regarding the “time-out” error occurring for huge loads, why is a Dialog WP being assigned to run the job? Whereas, it should be typically be assigned to a background WP.

  Could you please help us to investigate and let me know the results. If necessary I may free to turn on the trace in the quality.

Kindly guide us how to proceed with this further ?.

It is odd that you would expect someone in SCN, who know nothing about your implementation, would correct errors in, or be willing to redesign, your Z-code

It is even more odd that you would post a query about a POS-DM problem in a Production Planning forum.  I can't think of many SAP subjects that are as unrelated.

I suggest you close this post, and repost in a more appropriate forum, and pray for a very accommodating SCN member.
