HANA 2 Memory Leak after Upgrade


some weeks ago we upgraded our Solution Manager 7.2 from HANA 1.0 SP12 to HANA 2.0 SP4 Rev 2.

Now we have a memory leak problem on the JAVA System of the SM. (ABAP is fine with same DB Version).

Before the upgrade the system used 30GB Memory. Now the System gathers more and more memory until it allocats all (100GB) and then the errors start, backup fails, due to insufficent memory, ...

On the OS we see that the hdbindexserver is using this memory.

It's only on the JAVA production System. JAVA Development is running fine, with the same DB Version.

Did we miss to set a Parameter ? Or any other suggestions ?

    Hello Lukas,

    As you can see HANA heap memory takes around 78 GB of memory and below allocators uses the most.

    Pool/RowEngine/QueryExecution/SearchAlloc - 23 GB

    Pool/RowEngine/Session - 14 GB

    Pool/Statistics - 11 GB

    If possible kindly check below SAP Note, as solution manager java uses jdbc connection to connect to java database. Below SAP Note suggest similar symptoms.

    2711824 - High Number of Prepared Statements Causing High Usage of Memory Allocator Pool/Statistics

    If you have upgrade HANA databases, kindly update HANA client on SolMan JAVA application servers as well to version 2.3.38 (or higher).
