SMP 3.0 sizing for SAP Work Mgr. 6.2
We are in the process of revalidating our SMP 3.0 sizing based on more accurate numbers regarding our data volume(number of work orders synced per day- during peak time, average number of operations per work order, number of equipments/functional location per operation etc.).
I have read the latest SAP Work Mgr. sizing guide as well as KBA 1918717 and have the following questions:
1) The SAP Work Mgr. sizing guide gives an idea of the number of SAPS our server will need based on our data volume, But it only takes into account the throughput based on transactional data (work orders). As part of the initial sync, we have a LOT of master data that is being downloaded to the client - equipments, functional locations, characteristics etc. Does this not have an impact on SMP 3.0 server sizing? I did not see this as part of the calculations in the sizing guide.How do we include these numbers as part of the SMP server sizing calculations?
2) Also, we are including the functionality to integrate with GIS, this of course means that more geometry relevant data is being fetched as part of the initial sync. How do we include these as part of our iterative sizing calculations?
Any help or insights would be very much appreciated!

Thanks for the response. I completed the sizing exercise about 3 weeks back, I referred to the "Sizing guide for SMP 2.3" for Agentry applications, most of the concepts were identical:
We have to calculate the following:
1) BASE SAPS - Determine the peak number of users that interact with the server during any one hour period
2) Download SAPS - The download data SAPS is determined by the number of rows transmitted through the Agentry Server to devices
3) Upload SAPS - The amount of uploaded data is dependent on the number of transactions (insert, update, delete) performed on the device
The only question I had was the sizing guide talks about a BASE SAPS multiplier, table 16 on page 24 - number of instances in each device database. I have no idea what that it, for my calculation I just "assumed" that my BASE SAPS multiplier was 26.
We are now waiting for vendor to come back and confirm if our servers are indeed these many SAPS.
