Technical clean up

There are also technical tables that might grow fast in SAP Focused Run that will consume memory in your HANA database.

Fast growing table LMDB_P_CHANGELOG

Fast growing SISE_LOG table

Run program SISE_LOG_DELETE to clean up SISE_LOG table. See OSS note 2984789 – Scenario F4-help not working for SISE_LOG_DELETE report.

Idoc and PI monitoring data fast growing

Invalid entries in MAI_UDM_PATHS

If table MAI_UDM_PATHS is getting large, follow the instructions from OSS note 3030652 – Cleanup invalid entries from database table mai_udm_paths to clean up. It is explained in more detail in OSS note 3250729 – Housekeeping for metric paths.
