This blog will explain on the new USMM2 procedure.

Questions that will be answered are:

  • When do I get the new USMM?
  • How to technically activate the new USMM?
  • How to run the new USSM?

Activation of USMM2

USMM2 is activated if you install a recent support package: SAP_BASIS release 7.50 (SP 11), 7.51 (SP 06) and 7.52 (SP 02). With the import of the support package the old USMM is simply replaced with the new one. Official background document from SAP: please follow this link.

The old transaction USMM is still available using transaction USMM_OLD. The only action to do is to activate the new SICF nodes:

The basic options are still the same. Here you set the basic master data for the user measurement.

Newer feature is the rule-based classification:

More information from SAP on this feature: follow this link.

Executing the new system measurement

From the USMM start screen hit the system measurement button. The new web part of USMM will start.

USMM check notes

The first part is to update the USMM tool and measurement programs.

Yes, also the user measurement programs are written by SAP and are definitely not bug free.
If the measurement program measures too much, apply the notes you find. If the measurement program measures not accurately and SAP does not inform you to apply the note, then you cannot help it that SAP makes a mistake and charge you too little. 
When SAP asks you politely to apply the OSS note best to comply to the request.

In the second step you can do the user classification check and adjust when needed:
