Export performance is likely to be a major bottleneck for Origin during the "initial load" sync process where FIM is writing back network account and email address to SuccessFactors (SAP HR). Current performance metrics from DEV are not a great guide due to the limited number of employees loaded into FIM for that environment (<50), however the last sizeable batch was 39 user updates in 00:09:50 (a rate of 1 every 15 seconds!!!). When it comes to a full set we are talking upwards of 33K users requiring updates - and at the above rate we will be looking at 8250 minutes, or 137.5 hours, or 5.7 days.
In an attempt to head this problem off in advance of it coming to the attention of the testers, I am thinking that we may have to rethink the way we are applying updates for the initial load.
See linked issue for idea as to how the PS connector architecture might be improved for exports in future.
