Chapter 10. Performance and Troubleshoot... > Hardware Capacity Analysis

Hardware Capacity Analysis

As explained in Chapter 2, client/server architecture, such as the one SAP systems are based on, several servers might play the role of application servers, and only one is assigned the role of database server. A SAP system is scalable; therefore, you may add application servers, as needed, if the workload increases. It is essential to understand, though, that resources are limited, in particular, hardware resources.

In this topic, it is time now to check the capacity of your hardware in terms of physical memory and CPU. Monitoring the hardware consumption of your servers on a regular basis is a best practice that can prevent performance problems due to hardware bottlenecks, if these are detected on time and the proper actions are taken.
