Recommendation from IBM HANA on POWER LAB:
Since October 12th, SLES 11 SP4 is approved to operate SAP HANA on
Power. It is highly recommended to deploy all new installations on SP4
and to plan for upgrades of old SP3 based installations. The advantages
of SP4 is that it is a default kernel compared to the PTF requirement of
a SP3 deployment. SLES 11 SP4 also comes with advantageous features
such as large_send for better ethernet throughput when using 10GB
Ethernet cards.
