SAPWL_GET_WORKLOAD_SUMMARY: Units for time fields?

Former Member

For SAPWL_GET_WORKLOAD_{SUMMARY,STATISTIC}, what are the units for the time fields (CPU, response, etc.)?

I thought they were microseconds (like in the raw statistics records), but comparing results to ST03 GUI it looks like they're milliseconds.

Where can I find definitive documentation?

Thanks.

In pre-NetWeaver systems, the units of the time fields in SAPWL_GET_WORKLOAD_SUMMARY are milliseconds.

In NetWeaver, the equivalent function is SWNC_COLLECTOR_GET_AGGREGATES. This function, by default, will return time fields in milliseconds. But there is a scale FACTOR parameter that defaults to 1000. If you set it to 1, then the time units will be microseconds.

See these blogs on the functions to get ST03 data:
