Memory related query

Hello Gurus,

I want to analyse an SAP system if it is using the available memory in an optimised manner

From your past experiences , can you let me know the thumb rule to assess?

Say for Ex , I have the below memory assigned to my host

total used free shared buffers cached

Mem: 2019 1060 958 0 0 47

-/+ buffers/cache: 1013 1006

Swap: 19 0 19

Total: 2039 1060 978

and I guess we can have 60% allocated to SAP and 30% for the database.

Can you on a high level let me know , what are the main parameters which I need to check in order to make sure that my SAP server is properly using the allocated memory.

My DB size is 15 TB.

Basically i want to know the most important oracle and sap parameters to consider.

Thanks,

Sowmya

    Hi Sowmya

    1. Is this SAP CI & DI on single system? could you share the SAP & OS/DB version details?

    2. Yes, You have to use the SAP Application + OS for 70 % & DB 30 % of over all memory

    3. During the peak time are you facing slowness or any other issues?

    Regards

    Hi Sowmya,

    You can check the memory usage in tcode /ST02 . Here you can see how much paging , EM is being used. In here you can see memory related parameters under SAP memory tab.

    Also you can run sappfpar command to check.

    As such there are many parameters that needs to be considered based on the kernel version (7.2X , 7.4X) and OS related, these might include extended memory , paging , heap related parameters.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
