No changes in Work Processes after restarting the SAP Instance


Dear All,

I have made some changes in the Application Servers.

I had 22 work processes on my Application Servers out of which, 16 were Dialog work process, 6 Background work processes and 2 Spool.

I changed the instance profile through RZ10,

I made Dialog work process to 14 and Background work processes to 4 and added one(1) Critical Update and one(1) Non-Critical Update without changing the number of Spool work processes which were 2.

After i restart the instance i can see that there are 14 Dialogs 6 Background and 2 Spool.

I cannot see the Critical and Non-Critical Update which i added in the instance profile on both the Application Servers.

When i checked the value of parameter rdisp/wp_no_btc (background) the value is showing 4, but in sm50 the background work processes are 6.

Please can anyone tell me why the update work processes which i added are not shown in SM50 and,

why there are 6 background work processes showing in SM50 where as the current value for the background work process is showing 4 in RZ11.

Thanks in advance.
