User-based Hardware Sizing

Long Text

Dear SAP Support,

We would like to know the SAP Hardware sizing for "User-Based sizing".

Our queries is

1. In "User-Based sizing", What we have to consider,

the number of users are calculated in the basis of

Concurrent users in the system in a given point of time


total number of users logged into the systems in the whole day?

We have referred the SAP document "Sizing SAP System" and the above

point are not clearly mentioned.

    As the document says there are number of possible definitions for "users" in SAP context...

    For understanding assume that no of users logged to the system they consume different resources / areas in the system, some login to the system whole day but they don't work whole day, some user open multiple session to work while other open multiple session but they don't exactly work on it which means (every new session consume memory/resources) like you said their are concurrent users wherein they work and consume resources (SAP WPs)

    So before finalizing the sizing first compare the both reports (user based, thorhgput) and read the advantages and disadvantages for both. You can also consult with SAP / Account Manager to help you

    • as per SAP document there's no point in counting no of pc's, laptops to calculate no of users
