Hi Experts,

We recieved a request to investigate why database analyzer was not running from 8th to 12 th August.

I couldnt find any log or trace related to database analyzer .

The info i could find was that LVC data base was restarted on 5th August

dbmcli on LP5>dban_state

OK

0,OK: everything works fine

0,/sapdb/programs_plsaplp500/bin/dbanalyzer -d LP5 -u , -state

    HI Ameya,

    the first place to look would be the DBM.PRT file (database manager protocol) and check for "DBAN_START" or "DBAN_STOP" commands during the timeframe you mentioned.

    Apart from that you can find the DBAnalyzer logfiles in the analyzer subfolder of the RUNDIRECTORY of the the MaxDB/liveCache-instance.

    The files you should check are DBAN.err and DBAN.prt (check the [documentation|http://maxdb.sap.com/doc/7_7/45/7936cc1f2f401ee10000000a1553f6/content.htm] as well!).

    best regards,

    Lars
