Quadcore processor

Hi,

I have one server with one quadcore processor.

It is necessary to configure MAXCPU = 3 ?

Or Its better to use MAXCPU = 1?

Is there any other configuration when I change my environment to a quadcore processor?

Best regards,

    Just SAPDB is running in this server, nothing else.

    Data Collision.

    When I had a dual core server, sometimes in the dbanalyzer messages, I could see some data collision rate.

    Best regards,

    It depends on what else is running on the system and how the load distributes between the application and the database.

    We always set MAXCPU equal to the numbers of cores in the system because the chance, that all 8 CPUs will be used 100 % by the database is very low.

    Hello Daniel

    In addition to Markus' answers:

    In your situation:

    - set MAXCPU=4

    - no

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answers.

    I set MAXCPU to 4 and everything is fine.

    It solved my performance problems.

    Thank you !
