   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for sapconf

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2017:1017-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1031073 #1032516 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Raspberry Pi 12-SP2
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP2

   An update that has two recommended fixes can now be


   This update provides sapconf 4.1.7, which provides the following fixes:

   - SAP HANA performs better with "force_latency=70" in its tuning profile,
     so the setting is now introduced to the profile. (bsc#1032516)
   - sapconf's sap-hana tuning profile incorrectly used "noop" IO scheduler
     on disk block devices, which is not explicitly recommended by either
     SUSE or SAP. Performance regression showed up during benchmark runs.
     Hence, the IO scheduler setting is removed from tuning profile, and left
     to be decided by end-user. (bsc#1031073)
