3462032 - How to handle HANA Alert 98: ‘LOB garbage collection activity’


When checking the Alerts tab in HANA there is an alert called 'LOB garbage collection activity'. The alert determines whether or not the lob garbage collection is activated.

  • In HANA Studio, you would find this alert by going to Administration Console -> Alerts -> Show: all alerts
  • In Solution Manager you would find this alert using transaction DBACOCKPIT -> choose HANA System -> Expand Current Status -> Alerts
  • To check the alert details and the exact time when this error has occurred, please go to HANA Studio -> Administration Console -> Alerts -> double click on the alert:
    • The lob garbage collection has been deactivated in 'indexserver.ini'  because the parameter 'garbage_collect_interval_s' in the section 'lobhandling' is zero.
