Measuring in SAPS-To Calculate No. of SAPS in Hardware Sizing of SAP Systems...

This article shows,how we calculate no. of SAPS when we are doing SAP systems hardware sizing.

What is SAPS :-

SAP Application Standard (SAPS) is a hardware-independent unit of measurement that describes the performance of a system configuration in SAP environment.

It is derived from the Sales and Distribution (SD) benchmark.

100 SAPS = 2,000 fully business processed order line items per hour

100 SAPS = 6,000 Dialog Steps (Screen Changes)

= 2,000 Postings per hour

= 2,400 SAP Transactions

To Calculate No. of SAPS

No. of Transactions

No. of Transactions

Large Firm   =   3,20,000

Middle Firm  =   80,000

Lower Firm    = 20,000

Formula for Calculating SAPS :-

Method 1 (Based on No. of Transactions) :-

Method : 1

SAPS =   No. of Transactions *1.5

100

=  20000*1.5

100

SAPS       = 300

Method 2 (Based on No. of CPU):-

Method : 2

No. of SAPS that a CPU can hold  = 1400

No. of SAPS = No. of SAPS * 1.5

= (1400*2)*1.5    ( i.e.2-CPU's)

= 2800*1.5

No. of SAPS = 4200 SAPS

Method 3 (Based on No. of Users):-

Method : 3

If No. of users = 100

Then No. of SAPS = 100*20 (As Standard)

No. of SAPS      = 2000 SAPS

With the help of SAPS/CPU's you can calculate the numbers of Low/Medium/High(Based on No.of Transactions-Input) users in your SAP system.
