How to improve the performance of the workflow system in an operational system.
Stechies

As the system is running, index records are frequently created for the workflow runtime tables and then deleted again. This has a negative effect on the performance if you access the system using these indexes as a result the performance of the workflow system in an operational system becomes increasingly slow, even though the overall load remains the same.

To improve the performance of the workflow system depending on the data volume of the processes, indexes of the database runtime tables should be reorganized regularly (for example, on a monthly basis). If you use ORACLE or INFORMIX, you can use the SAP tool SAPDBA to do this. After an archiving run, you should always start the reorganization. For this purpose, edit the indexes of the following tables:
