 Database Table Growth


With the analytical app Database Table Growth, you get an overview of all database tables. For those in which a predefined threshold for the filling level is exceeded, the app provides the relevant error messages. You can analyze the database tables by choosing between three Key Performance Indicators (KPIs): Total Data Sets, Data Sets in Hot Partition, and Memory Usage in Hot Partition. For each KPI, you can show the number of data sets or the growth rate (in percent). If you have activated data aging, you receive information about the data aging objects to which the tables belong and you have the option of navigating to the transactional app Monitor Data Aging Objects to optimize the distribution of database tables across partitions.
