The IBM Rational Application Developer v9.5 Beta bundles the latest version of the IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix which includes 4 new features and bug fixes.
With the new support for incremental publish and remote debug of applications, we now only need to publish the delta code changes instead of redeploying the entire application, significantly reducing the deployment time and making application development targeting Bluemix easier than ever.
To try the new features check out Cesar Orozco's blog post with all the steps you need in the Rational Community here: Incremental publish & remote debug help accelerate IBM Bluemix app development using Rational Application Developer V9.5 Beta

First, make sure to have gone through the prerequisites for SAP testing. Refer the below link -
As you see in the link, you can have a maximum of only 50 virtual users on an agent for a SAP GUI test.
Beyond that, failures such as "connection errors", "SAP GUI Component not found" and "Invalid arguments" will start occurring during playback.
This is a result of how SAP has implemented the test automation API in SAP GUI.
Depending upon the script's complexity and the number of GUI components that are part of the script's scenario, it is likely that a script can be played back for only a lesser number of users. These limitations arise out of the SAP automation framework and not Rational Performance Tester (RPT) tool itself. The limitation holds good for other testing tools as well.
Since the limitation is on the on number of users per engine Java process, I tried setting up multiple agent engines in the same physical machine. This involved creation of multiple host aliases in the agent machine and then adding those hosts as locations to be used in user groups (Vertically Scaling an agent machine).
I personally saw that high capacity machine with multiple Agents did not resolve the issue.
Below are some recommendations while load testing a SAP GUI
