Version change info:

Version Updated Date Major Changes
HANADumpAnalyzer 1.0.201906061800 2019-06-06

1. Starting from SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 03, a new workload auto-tuning feature is introduced: in case of high load to the system, MAX_CONCURRRENCY parameter is automatically adjusted to shrink the capacity for OLAP load. As a result, the system will distribute more capacity to the OLTP transactions and the OLTP load are more preferred to be processed. If the above situation happens and MAX_CONCURRENCY is reduced to a rather small value, the previous version can provide wrong conclusion that HANA is overloaded because wrong configuration of MAX_CONCURRENCY. This version fixed this wrong conclusion and enhanced the workload analyzer to analyze HANA workload even if the workload auto-tuning feature is triggered.

2. Fixed bugs for indexhandle state graph, dotGraph, blocked transactions graph are not working correctly if they are big.

3. Starting with SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 04, there is a format change for the system views on [STATISTICS] section in the HANA runtime dump. Due to this change, earlier version of SAP HANA dump analyzer are not working correctly with error message "There is a problem to analyze this dump". This new version fixed this issue and supports HANA runtime dumps from HANA version lower than HANA 2.0 SPS 04 and above.
HANADumpAnalyzer 1.0.201910151100 2019-10-15

1. Auto analyzing composite OOM is supported.

2. Improved the analysis if no fatal issue is auto-detected from the provided HANA runtime dump.

3. Added Runtime Dump Mini Check feature.In case the issue is not auto-analyzed, the runtime dump mini check report will be directly provided to end user to have an overview how the HANA system is behaving when the runtime  dump is captured.If the issue is analyzed, the mini check report won’t be provided in the analysis report. It can still be triggered in the expert tab explicitly or with -hc option in command line mode.

4. Starting from SAP HANA 2.00.043, the configured value of max_concurrency is available in system view M_JOBEXECUTORS (MAX_CONCURRENCY_CONFIG). In case of a system hang issue with the small value of max_concurrency recorded in the system view M_JOBEXECUTORS_ on the runtime dump, SAP HANA dump analyzer should be able to tell if it's caused by a wrong configuration or MAX_CONCURRENCY auto-adjusting feature is triggered.

5. Improved error handling when runtime dumps is incomplete.

6. Fixed bugs on flamgraph zoom in/zoom out etc.
HANADumpAnalyzer 1.0.201911261800 2019-11-26 1. Fixed the HANA workload analyzer bug. Fixed wrong conclusion for max_concurrency configuration in some cases when HANA has lower version than lower than HANA 2.0 SP03 or above HANA 2.0 SP04.
HANADumpAnalyzer 1.0.202004281800 2020-04-28

1. The admission control feature is available starting with SAP HANA 2.0 in order to restrict the execution of SAP HANA database requests at times of a high system utilization. This new version added HANA admission control queue analyzer to detect and analyze if there is a queue waiting issue.

2. Fixed a bug that the HANA composite OOM dump is not analyzed with error popup message "For input string:"XXgb(XXXXXXb)"".

3. Fixed an issue to allow space in the trace file name.
HANADumpAnalyzer 1.0.202008101800 2020-08-10

1. Fixed a hang issue when there is a loop in the parent relationship.

2. Fixed OOM analyzer issues e.g. when no SQL memory consumption is recorded on M_ACTIVE_STATEMENTS; when IPMM short info is not recorded on OOM dump on higher HANA revisions.
HANADumpAnalyzer 1.0.202009011800 2020-09-01

1.  Added exception handling if the files to be analyzed are invalid

2. Added timeout handling if SAP HANA dump analyzer runs for long time. You can specify the timeout setting using -t option when executing via command line

3.  Fixed a warning when running Waitgraph analysis on Linux environment

Frequent Seen Problems of using SAP HANA dump analyzer

1. In case you are uploading a large HANA runtime dump, the HANA dump analyzer can run into problems like "GC overhead limit exceeded" or error "Java heap space". You can increase Java heap (e.g. to 1GB) by starting HANA dump analyzer via command:
java -Xmx1G -jar HANADumpAnalyzer.jar
