sappfpar in a SAP System
To evaluate your current profile settings or see how a change would affect the instance without restarting it, use the sappfpar utility to determine shared memory requirements. Running it as follows gives you detailed information on how those profile settings will allocate shared memory:
sappfpar pf=<instance_profile> check
Remember that profile changes do not take effect until you restart the instance, so you can change profile settings and run sappfpar without ever affecting the instance.
