SQLM vs ST04/ST03

I have a doubt regarding the usage of SQLM vs ST04/ST03 for performance monitoring.

Currently our basis team uses ST04 and ST03 to find out the worst performing programs in our production system. I know there must be some advantage of SQLM over these tcodes but can't really find out what. In all the places it just mentions that the main disadvantage of these tools are that they either don't provide a link to the driving business process or don't give enough data. But I'm not sure what that means since I can easily navigate to the source code position by double-clicking the SQL statement.

It'll really help me if I can find out a scenario where SQLM works better than ST04.

Go to transaction SQLM and click Application Help (blue (i) icon).

These are simply different tools IMHO, one is "better" that the other not more than a hammer is "better" than a fork, for example.
