The graphic below shows the parameter’s relationship to the entire roll area (parameter ztta/roll_area).

The default value is platform-specific and is determined dynamically. The default value is specified in transaction RZ11. This value should not normally be changed.
On 64 bit platforms, where there is sufficient extended memory, the default value of this parameter is 1, the work process therefore is allocated extended memory straight away.
