|Component|| The benchmark component indicates the SAP component that is
mainly tested by the given benchmark.
Shown are only those components, for which there are certified benchmarks.
|Config|| There are three configurations:
|Release||The release indicates the release of the used SAP software. Each benchmark component has it's own releases, e.g. ERP benchmarks have ERP 6.0, ERP 2005, etc., BI benchmarks have a NetWeaver release etc.|
This is the name of the hardware provider.
As a company name is nothing stable, you may find several company names if you choose only one. E.g. if you choose "HP", you will also find results from Compaq and Digital, or if you choose "Fujitsu", you will also find results from "FSC", "SNI" and "Siemens".
|Database||This indicates the database software.|
|Operating System||This indicates the operating system of the central server in a two tier configuration. In a three tier configuration, the operatingsystem of the database server is the important thing. In heterogenous environments, also the operating system of the application servers is displayed and therefore will also match the query.|
|Server Type||Here you can fill in any string you want. A result is displayed if this string is found somewhere in the server details.|
|BW EML/AML: No. of Records||The BW-EML and BW-AML benchmark can be executed with different data volumes which is defined by the number of initial records. Choosing the number of records in the drop-down list, will select only the BW-EML benchmark that were using this data volume.|

The meaning of the keywords in the result list
|Nr||This is the unique certification number.|
|Date||The date, the benchmark was certified.|
|Vendor||The hardware provider.|
|Component||The benchmark component (like SD, ATO, etc.).|
|Throughput||The throughput is the result of the benchmark. The unit is depending on the component. E.g. SD benchmark generates a throughput value of "SAPS", the ATO benchmark generates "orders/h". There are benchmarks that will have more than one value displayed. These benchmarks have more than one KPI as a result and each of the KPIs is displayed with its unit of measure.|
|User||For dialog benchmarks, users are the main result. The users are simulated benchmark users with a thinktime of 10 seconds. By doing their work, they will create the shown throughput.|
|Rsp||The dialog response time for dialog benchmarks. This is the response time in seconds, the users sees when he sends a screen to the SAP system.|
|Config||Configuration 2-tier, 3-tier or cloud. For more details see the first paragraph.|
|Release||Release of the used SAP software. For more details see the first paragraph.|
|DBMS||Database server type and version.|
|OS||Operating system release. In a 2-tier configuration this is the OS version of the central server, in a homogenous 3-tier configuration (all servers use the same OS) this is this one used OS, in a 3-tier heterogenous configuration, the different OS versions are shown. In virtualized benchmarks, the virtualisation software is displayed in this column.|
