Optimizing the number of SAP work processes

This is a simple method to determine the optimal number of work processes DIA, BTC, UPD, …

– Execute transaction SM50
– Display CPU time via CTRL+SHIFT+F6 or menu List -> CPU

For each process type (DIA, BTC, …), you must have at least one process with a very small CPU time which mean that this work process was never used since SAP startup.
