Dynamic work processes



According to excellent blog post

by Ishteyaque Ahmad,

in NetWeaver 7.3 we have the possibility of using dynamic work processes.

I have been thinking about possible use cases for the technique.

When would You use dynamic work processes?

Anyone used the technique anywhere?

I have doubts, because: in such cases, where all work processes have been exhausted, the bottleneck normally ISN'T in the work processes, but rather in the database or the work processes inter-locking each other. In this case, adding new work processes would actually make the situation worse, am I right.

On the other hand, in virtualized environments, the memory consumed by the dynamically added work processes will be released to be used by other server instances after stopping the processes, right?

Please share your thoughts.
