The sysprocsdev Device

The sysprocsdev devices stores the sybsystemprocs database, which contains most of the SAP-supplied system procedures.

System procedures are a collection of SQL statements and flow-of-control statements that perform system tasks. The system procedures that are needed, for example sp_configure, during recovery situations are stored in the master database.

Note: sysprocsdev is the default system name for this device. However, it is frequently referred to as the sybsystemprocs device, since it stores the sybsystemprocs database.
