Hana db filesystem directory structure and process command line

Hi experts,

Could someone provide please actual directory structure of Hana db filesystem?

Generally speaking, I need to model some Hana db(of 1.0, 1.5 versions) entities. Among them:

  • Schemas

  • Data files

  • Log files

  • Important configuration files

  • Database parameters(guess found in config files and command line)

  • Database version

The question is where i can find such information having access to filesystem?

One another question is how common Hana db commandline looks like?

Does it have one process or several?

It would be perfect if someone give some ps -aef command result grepped with relevant Hana Db processes

    Eugene - Below are the default directory structure per HANA Install guide:

    Installation Path /usr/sap

    Home directory /usr/sap/<SID>/home

    Home of the login shell /bin/sh

    Data volumes <inst_path>/<sid>/global/hdb/data

    Log volumes <inst_path>/<sid>/global/hdb/log

    Under the global directory you'll have the following sub-directories:







    | -hdbuninst

    | -hdbaddhost

    | -hdbrename







    I hope the above information helps.
