SAP Power Benchmarks

SAP Power Benchmarks

Today's hardware and software choices are made using a discriminating and increasingly sustainability-oriented set of criteria – decisions are no longer based on performance aspects alone. With the help of the SAP power benchmarks, customers and partners can now take energy consumption into account when determining the appropriate hardware configuration for their IT landscapes.

The SAP power benchmarks demonstrate how SAP system configurations can be optimized for power consumption while continuing to deliver performance.

Benchmark Types

  • SAP system power benchmark – The purpose of this benchmark is to show the power consumption of an entire SAP system, i.e. the power consumption of the server(s), the storage and the network to connect them.
  • SAP server power benchmark – The SAP server power benchmark provides information about the power consumed by the server(s) in an SAP system environment. This encompasses CPU, memory and, in the case of a three-tier setup, the power consumed by the network connections between the servers, excluding the storage.

The key figure of this benchmark is the power efficiency indicator watts/kSAPS.

For information on the benchmark definition, the measurement methodology, the load and run rules, and further details refer to the SAP power benchmark specification

The SAP server power benchmark has a fixed, SD-based load profile. The high-load phases (between 15-20 min) of the following load levels are included in the measurement:

0% (active idle), 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 65%, 80%, 100%

While system-side power management activities are permitted, manual interference with the system during or between high load phases is prohibited.

The following actions are simulated in each load phase:

  • 0. Logon
  • 1. Main screen
  • 2. Call /nVA01 (Create customer order) (Posts goods issue)
  • 3. First screen
  • 4. Second screen (with five items)
  • 5. Choose Save
  • 6. Call /nVL01N (Create a delivery)
  • 7. First screen
  • 8. Choose Save
  • 9. Call /nVA03 (Display customer order)
  • 10. Choose Enter
  • 11. Call /nVL02n (Change delivery)
  • 12. Choose [F20]
  • 13. Call /nVA05 (List orders)
  • 14. Choose Enter
  • 15. Call /nVF01 (Create invoice)
  • 16. Choose Save
  • 17. Call /nend
  • 18. Confirm log off
