WAS inlcusion in FrontEnd BI 4.0
I would like to ask a question about the BI 4.0 sizing documentation – WAS inclusion in the total FrontEnd SAPS for BI applications.
From the BI 4.0 sizing PowerPoint presentation u2013 it says that the WAS is included in the FrontEnd unless stated otherwise in the guides.
Than inside the Companion guide for all BI applications (OLAP analysis, WebI, Cystal, etc.) it says “The Web/App Server SAPS rating is the same as the SAP BusinessObjects machine SAPS rating”. Does it mean that the WAS is not included in the sizing? Meaning that in case the sizing documentation recommends FrontEnd tier to be M size = 8440 SAPS, based on the statement above do I have to add another 8440 SAPS only for the WAS? – seems to be quite high.
It is a bit confusing but crucial for proper sizing.
