I know it. ASE 15.7 isn't better way for BW... I hope tu upgrade it next year. Now I'm living with poor performance. Really poor performance. We have also an ERP box with the same HW configuration that runs so fat and it is used by more then concurrent users.
Have you got any suggest on ASE tuning side? It's a Windows box with 128 GB ram
