Most companies use a standard template for their local buffer pools, so we make that assumption. The final variable is the volatility of the individual buffer pools. A volatile pool is one where the update rate is less than 10% of the requests. These pools require a 40% backing in the group buffer pool per member times the equivalent number of members. Virtual pools with an update rate of less than 10% are considered read-intensive and should have 10% backing in the group buffer pool. Uncategorized pools should be given a backing of 30% (for example, the default buffer pools BP2, BP3).

Using the transaction or the command SMMS, the state of an instance can be changed (to passive). In this state, the application server can continue to process received requests or create requests itself. However, no new requests should be sent to the server. The purpose of this state is to logically remove from the system a server that has to be stopped during productive operation. The server finishes processing its existing requests but does not accept any new requests and can be terminated without having to interrupt any relevant requests such as updates or batch jobs.

The virtual IP address (VIPA) feature of TCP/IP is used in this solution to provide for IP takeover for the enqueue server components. In order to keep the setup of TCP/IP and SAP profiles small, all of the components use the same VIPA. The application server instances connect directly to the enqueue server via the VIPA. To provide for high availability and continuous operations, along with transparent failover of the enqueue server, there is a new component called the enqueue replication server.
