    Hi,

    By default you will be having 7 Dialog process while installation. If you are having excess users then increase Dialog's to 14 that will be sufficient.

    Go to RZ10 and increase Dialog's to 14 then restart the server once then it will be effected permanently.

    Go to MMC there u can see the increased Dialog's (or) you can see at SAP level t-code: SM50.

    Hello,

    That depends on the no of users that are going to logon.

    For windows based operating system, it depends on the no of processors you have in the server.

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/EN/02/962817538111d1891b0000e8322f96/frameset.htm

    While increasing the no of work process, you need to note that per work process, you have to assign 50 MB to 60 MB of memory, depending on the SAP release and operating system.

    Regards,

    I also want to do the same, to increase the number of work process of our application. Is there an official SAP document listing all the parameters that should be considered when increasing the number of work process? I tried searching SAP support portal but I can't seem to find one.

    formula you are looking for is

    No.of Workprocesses depends on RAM Size.plz see the below formula for WPu2019s

    No.of Dialog WPs=RAM Size(MB)/250.

    No.of Background Wps=RAM Size(MB)/750.

      yes, Matt is right...

      or, just out of curiosity, that value is 0:00:03 on iSeries systems 😊
