Introduction

SAP released the Benchmark Tool for analysing your system performance as part of the performance analysis tools with Wave 2022.08 and 2022.Q2 QRC Release.

The Performance Benchmark helps to measure your client hardware score and network speed. These have a measurable influence on your SAP Analytics Cloud user experience.

With this you are able to run a performance test not on your stories or applications but on your client or network.

Every user is able to perform their own client and network performance test here to determine system benchmark score and network latency and their bandwidth.

Network performance and ping rate have a significant impact on Stories and Analytic Applications loading times and it is advisable to keep an eye out for these.

The Number can be improved by turning off CPU intensive applications, business conferencing tools etc. while loading the SAC stories and analytic applications.
