SAP Application Performance Standard

The SAP Application Performance Standard, known as SAPS is a unit of measurement that describes the performance (throughput result) of a SAP system configuration. This hardware-independent unit is based on the SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) Benchmark. It is defined as:

2,000 fully processed order line items per hour = 100 SAPS

This throughput corresponds to 6,000 processed dialog steps (screen changes), 2,000 postings per hour in the SD benchmark, or 2,400 SAP transactions.

Famous quotes containing the words standard, performance, sap and/or application:

    This unlettered man’s speaking and writing are standard English. Some words and phrases deemed vulgarisms and Americanisms before, he has made standard American; such as “It will pay.” It suggests that the one great rule of composition—and if I were a professor of rhetoric I should insist on this—is, to speak the truth. This first, this second, this third; pebbles in your mouth or not. This demands earnestness and manhood chiefly.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The audience is the most revered member of the theater. Without an audience there is no theater. Every technique learned by the actor, every curtain, every flat on the stage, every careful analysis by the director, every coordinated scene, is for the enjoyment of the audience. They are our guests, our evaluators, and the last spoke in the wheel which can then begin to roll. They make the performance meaningful.
    Viola Spolin (b. 1911)

    a dance sacred as the sap in
    the trees,
    Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    By an application of the theory of relativity to the taste of readers, to-day in Germany I am called a German man of science, and in England I am represented as a Swiss Jew. If I come to be regarded as a bĂȘte noire the descriptions will be reversed, and I shall become a Swiss Jew for the Germans and a German man of science for the English!
    Albert Einstein (1879–1955)
