3404208 - How to check the high cardinality flag for an InfoObject


In SAP BW on HANA and SAP BW/4HANA, there is an option to mark an InfoObject as 'High Cardinality'. This flag helps in optimizing the handling of these objects by the HANA database, particularly in terms of how the data is stored and accessed, leading to better performance for read and write operations.

Tables generated for InfoObjects with property 'High Cardinality' are hash partitioned at the first level. All other InfoObject tables are not partitioned (see SAP Note 2019973 and 2374652).

You would like to check whether high cardinality is active for a specific InfoObject.
