Optimize the environment

Hi Gurus ~

I've been just approached by senior management to optimize the system's environment. I'm not sure on how to do that since I'm kind of new to BASIS. Our system consists of:

Dev, Qa, Prod


They have FI, HR, MM, SD, PP, PS, QM, CS

I turn to you for some help. If you have any ideas, would you please share?


Denny Mathews.

Hello Denny,

Here are set of transactions which can give health of your system

ST03N with expert mode can give you the average response time of the system, DB request time, and other response times.

It also gives the list of TOP transactions and programs which use system resources.

One of the focus can be to reduce resources utilization by custom transactions and programs which will considerably reduce resource usage.

ST02 will give usage of Buffers and swap. Based on the usage of them tuning of buffere and swap would also help the system performance.


Check the WP distribution in different operation modes. Usually the working hours needs more dialogue WP and night hours would need more BGD WP. Try running all background jobs in night time.

Check for loadbalancing of the application servers using SMLG.

DB02 keep an eye on indexes and tablesapces.

Verify the SP and kernel patch status with service marketplace
