Since b1611 it is possible to subdivide the Bonus Calculation process in smaller sub jobs to reduce the runtime of the job. This Opt-In is intended for customers with large number of bonus plans, otherwise the performance benefit won't be noticeable.
Please open an incident with Support asking to enable the setting in Provisioning "Variable pay bonus calculation sub job number". This functionality can have a maximum of 5 sub jobs.
