1909707 - How to handle HANA Alert 16: ‘Lock Wait Timeout Configuration'


When checking the Alerts tab in HANA Studio or Solution Manager there is an alert called “Param lock_wait_timeout in indexserver.ini section transaction is set to value: 1”

  • For HANA Studio, you would find the alert by going to Administration Console -> Alerts -> Show: all alerts -> Filter input ‘lock’.


  • For Solution Manager you would find the alert using transaction DBACOCKPIT -> choose HANA system -> expand Current Status -> Alerts.

Remember for this “Check lock waittimeout” alert in Solution Manager, it is auto-refreshed every 15 minutes, so the time stamp on the alert may not be the exact time when the alert occurs.

To check the exact time please go to Administration Console -> Alerts -> double click on the alerts -> more occurrence for this alert.
