- Support for large workloadsPage cache limit is a kernel parameter that has been introduced to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications. Some SAP solutions use systems with very large amounts of memory to keep business data in memory. Parts of this memory are very seldom accessed. When faced with filesystem load such as backup jobs, the Linux kernel decides that it's better to use memory as filesystem cache (page cache) to speed up the filesystem operations, and pages out the seldom accessed memory from the application. This feature is crucial for SAP applications to gain performance improvements. This feature is described in SAP Note 1557506.
- LicensingSupport and maintenance for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is offered as an annual, 3-year or 5-year subscription per server. It is available on the x86-64 (AMD64/Intel x64) architecture.
