Open the Database Assistant (transaction DB50) or the liveCache Assistant (transaction LC10). Choose   Problem Analysis   Performance   Database Analyzer  .


Open the DBA Cockpit (transaction DBACOCKPIT) and select   Performance   Database Analyzer  .


The following performance analysis options are available:

Starting/Stopping the Database Analyzer

When the SAP system or the SAP liveCache starts up, the Database Analyzer is automatically started for the system's Basis database. With other systems, you need to explicitly start the Database Analyzer. The Database Analyzer must always be activated. The default collection interval for the performance data is 900 seconds.

If necessary, you can start or stop the Database Analyzer explicitly with the Bottlenecks user menu.

For SAP liveCache you have the option of setting, with Automatic Monitoring, whether the Database Analyzer should always be activated or not.
