A DB Analyzer running on a Solaris x64 system is showing after starting:

*  I  Version information:

Where does the database get those 256 CPUs from? MaxDB 7.7 didn't show this behaviour. Not a problem actually, just curious.

Hello Markus,

please update with output of the commands "psrinfo -pv" and "uname -a".

Please review the sun docu at

http://www.sunsolarisadmin.com/general/psrinfo-find-number-of-physical-virtual-processors-in-solaris...

Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina

Hi Natalia,

this is not a T-Series server with an UltraSPARC CPU but an AMD machine:

# psrinfo -pv
The physical processor has 4 virtual processors (0 2 4 6)
  x86 (chipid 0x0 AuthenticAMD family 16 model 2 step 3 clock 2311 MHz)
        Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 8356
The physical processor has 4 virtual processors (1 3 5 7)
  x86 (chipid 0x1 AuthenticAMD family 16 model 2 step 3 clock 2311 MHz)
        Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 8356

# uname -a
SunOS xvm006s 5.10 Generic_141415-07 i86pc i386 i86pc

As you see there are only 8 CPUs listed.

Hello Markus,

1.

I will check with DB analyzer developer on this question & update the thread after that.

2.

Could you please post the CPU statistics for the database server from /nst06N, if the database connected to the SAP system.

Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina

Hello Markus,

-> could you, please create the SAP message on this question.

-> Please update the message with output of the SQLcommand:

select * from MACHINECONFIGURATION

< Number of logical CPUs is value of 'CPUNUMBER', which you saw in DBAnalyzer protocol.

You could check dbanalyzer78.cfg located in /sapdb/<SID>/db/env >

Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina

2012-02-14 06:36:17 RTEKernel 22: Processors: 5 (logical: 48, cores: 6)
