3424808 - High memory consumption under Pool/Statistics/Others


  • The HANA system's indexserver and/or nameserver traces show high memory consumption on the 'Pool/Statistics/Others' allocator

    GLOBAL_ALLOCATION_LIMIT (GAL) = 262.31gb (281659473920b), SHARED_MEMORY = 5.59gb (6008467456b), CODE_SIZE = 3.34gb (3591475200b), NVM_ALLOCATED_SIZE = 0b, OOM_RESERVATION_ALLOCATOR_SIZE = 96.14mb (100810752b)
    PID=1342499 (hdbindexserver), PAL=262.44gb (281793691648b), AB=214.85gb (230701150208b), UA=0, U=193.86gb (208161113364b), FSL=0b, FMC=0b
    [Some processes may have been skipped]
    Total allocated memory= 261.87gb (281182674944b)
    Total used memory     = 237.27gb (254776221535b)

    Sum Used              = 245176278879

    Top "M_HEAP_MEMORY" allocators (component, name, size). Ordered descending by exclusive_size_in_use.
     1: Monitoring & Statistical Data:              Pool/Statistics/Others   78.56gb (84356804784b)

  • Other secondary heap allocators consumed by the backup catalog are observed to have high memory consumption also :
     2: System:                                     Pool/BackupRecoveryAllocator                                             50.71gb (54458097264b)
    3: Monitoring & Statistical Data:              Pool/RowEngine/MonitorView/StatisticsMonitors/M_DEV_BACKUP_CATALOG_LOG   22.01gb (23643517440b)
     4: Monitoring & Statistical Data:              Pool/Statistics                                                          17.16gb (18436880464b)


  • hdbcons output reveals that the largest contributors to 'Pool/Statistics/Others' are on the log backup catalog entries (44 GB & 39 GB in this example) :
