The sysprocsdev Device

The sybprocsdev 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, for example sp_configure, that perform system tasks.

The system procedures that are needed 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.
