|Component|| The benchmark component indicates the SAP component that is
mainly tested by the given benchmark.
The componet actually defines the benchmark.
|Config|| There are differnt configurations, depending on the component:
|Release||The release indicates the release of the used SAP software. Each benchmark component has it's own releases, e.g. ERP benchmarks have Enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0, etc., BWH benchmarks have a NetWeaver release etc.|
|Type|| On premise or cloud.
"cloud" is considered a different configuration because of some general differences to "on premise" benchmarks. Please find more information about this topic here
This is the name of the hardware provider.
As a company name is nothing stable, you may find several company names if you choose only one. E.g. if you choose "HPE", you will also find results from HP, Compaq and Digital, or if you choose "Fujitsu", you will also find results from "FSC", "SNI" and "Siemens".
|Database||This indicates the database software.|
|Operating System||This indicates the operating system of the central server in a two tier configuration. In a three tier configuration, the operatingsystem of the database server is the important thing.|
For benchmarks running in a virtualized environment, this will
show the used hypervisor.
In cloud environments, typically hypervisors are used but they are not considered like in on premise benchmarks (indicated by "n/a").
Here you can fill in any string you want. A result is
displayed if this string is found somewhere in the
You can therefore search for e.g. CPU-Types (type "8180" to look for all benchmarks running with Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 processor)
|Date From and Date To||Select the date when the benchmarks have been certified.|
|BW EML/AML/Edition for SAP HANA: No.of records||
Some of the benchmarks use a varying amount of initial data. These benchmarks are:
Please note that only those benchmarks can be compared that use the same number of records.
|Display Server Details||
The meaning of the keywords in the result list
|Nr||This is the unique certification number.|
|Date||The date, the benchmark was certified.|
|Vendor||The hardware provider.|
|Component||The benchmark component (like SD, ATO, etc.).|
|Throughput||The throughput is the result of the benchmark. The unit is depending on the component. E.g. SD benchmark generates a throughput value of "SAPS", the ATO benchmark generates "orders/h". There are benchmarks that will have more than one value displayed. These benchmarks have more than one KPI as a result and each of the KPIs is displayed with its unit of measure.|
|User||For dialog benchmarks, users are the main result. The users are simulated benchmark users with a thinktime of 10 seconds. By doing their work, they will create the shown throughput.|
|Rsp||The dialog response time for dialog benchmarks. This is the response time in seconds, the users sees when he sends a screen to the SAP system.|
|Config||Configuration 2-tier or 3-tier or in case of BWH scale-up or scale-out. If nothing else is show, this is an "on premise" benchmark. In case of a cloud environment, the word "cloud" is added.|
|Release||Release of the used SAP software.|
|DBMS||Database server type and version.|
Operating system release. In a 2-tier configuration this
is the OS version of the central server, in a homogenous
3-tier configuration (all servers use the same OS) this is
this one used OS, in a 3-tier heterogenous configuration,
the different OS versions are shown.
In virtualized benchmarks, the virtualisation software is displayed in this column.
