SAPS information

Hi All,

I would like to find out a running application, the current SAPS value. Is there a way to find out either by calculating some formula?

Beside SAPS, what is the next better value which I could provide to the user about the utlization/performance of the systems which they are paying for initially?

Regards

Kim

    Hi Kim,

    In order to provide performance and information pertaining to response time and usage, you can use ST03N and use various options there to get the information that you would need to report to the users.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello,

    Use transaction SE30 - you can measure the runtime of any transacation here. It does not give you SAPS but allows you to compare systems, at least.

    Hi,

    Sizing SAPS is done through Quick sizer Tool. Following are the methodology used to arrive it

    1. User Based Sizing

    2. Throughput Based Sizing

    3. Customer Performance Test

    For your question you can choose option 2 as it is done based on the actual throughput.Third option is also viable however you have to invest time and money.

    Please refer the link https://websmp206.sap-ag.de/sizing

    Hi Kim,

    SM_BAIAS is correct. Find the SAP's rating from the link he supplied. Once you know your saps rating you can use your earlywatch reports, ST06, or OS commands to determine your peak CPU usage. If your DB saps rating is 50,000 saps and your peak CPU is 75%, than you are using 37500 SAPs. Add all servers together and that is what you are looking for.

    Hi,

    If my physical box is sharing serveral SID, then will the peak CPU for calcuation still work?

    • Kim,

      Yes. Sharing a server just means the SAPs you calculate will be for the combined instances to be summed into the total SAPS for your entire landscape. If for some reason you must break it down for each instance than I would compare the ST03N stats for each instance for that peak day and get a ratio of workload as determined by CPU time.

      Hope this helps. Good luck.
