System Measurement in the SAP Admin Module

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

You can measure the SAP systems in your SAP landscape using features of the SAP Admin module.

SAP requires their customers to regularly perform a system measurement. This is executed using the transaction USMM and the LAW (License Administration Workbench). While FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications is not necessary to run a system measurement, it gives you the tools to store and analyze valuable licensing and usage data of your systems.

The system measurement workflow in FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications usually comprises the following steps:

  1. Optimizing the license types. For more information, see Optimization in the SAP Admin Module, Regular Optimization of the SAP License Position in FlexNet Manager Suite, and Remediation in the SAP Admin Module.
  2. Running the measurement program (standard SAP transaction USMM). For more information, see Performing a System Measurement.
  3. Consolidating the USMM results in the LAW and sending the output to SAP, if desired. For more information, see Consolidating Measurement Results in the LAW.
  4. Uploading the LAW results into FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications for evaluation. For more information, see Loading the LAW Measurement Results.
