Trading partner inbound tRFCs and IDOCs flood our system
One of our trading partners send IDOCs and tRFCs and it swamps our server. Is there a way they can reduce the load on our system? Do they have the ability to throttle the loads, or is that on our side.
If we can throttle the traffic where is that done in ECC? I thought logon group could be they have no where to enter that data?
Where can they trottle it? They are also running SAP (IS_UT).?

There is a bit more background required to aid properly. In relation to IDOC transfer:
1) Is XI/PI involved, or is your trading partner sending directly from SAP (another ECC system)?
2) For the relevant IDOC partner profiles, on Inbound to your system how do you have the messages configured for the partner? To post immediately or to process in background via batch job, etc? This can make a big impact if post immediately is selected.
If your trading partner is sending IDOCs via SAP ABAP platform, then dependant on the release, you may be able to work with them to configure the queues properly as well for IDOC transfer. We have been in a similar position, and what we have done is configure our source systems (your trading partner systems in this case) to utilize queue processing in the Outbound partner profiles. This allows for message serialization in queues, and you can also tailor max connections,etc per queue as the previous poster has spoken too.
