Hi there

Well first you need to know how you current system is coping with the available resources,

Memory, cpu, IO on disks.

Having pretty much always used SUN for the last 7 yrs in one form or the other I love the equipment but a lot have to be said for the new Intel Itanium 2 technology out there, I am getting pretty partial to the HP offerings considering the same chip/configuration can run HP-UX and Linux (Red Hat Advance Server the OS of choice here).

Add this to some nice internal DAS storage or a Hitachi San and you have a pretty sweet solution,

But getting back to reality, know how you current environment is doing under normal and load conditions before looking to size something new,

Then also ask the considerations/requirements management want next, redundancy etc.

Hi Listers,

I'm using Oracle 9.1, Solaris, SAP application.

Damagement asked me to make recommendation for future system based on evalution of current system i.e :

I'm just wondering what aspects to monitor, what kind of report should I submit.

Sounds like capacity management or planning.

If you have a checklist about what to do (and I think unix command to do so) or example of report, it would help.
