Configuring the WASH Collector when the Total HANA SQL Plan Cache capacity is greater than 8 GB

If the sum of the SQL Plan Cache capacity of all the HANA instances monitored is more than 8GB, you must set the Maximum Heap size (Xmx value) for the collector. The following table includes suggested Xmx values to be set for the range of HANA SQL Plan Cache Capacities.

Range of Total Plan Cache CapacitySuggested Xmx Value
8 GB - 12 GB1.5 GB
12 GB - 16 GB2 GB
16 GB - 24 GB3 GB
24 GB - 32 GB4 GB

By default, the Xmx Value is 25% of the physical memory of the machine. Hence it is recommended to have the physical memory of at least 1 GB more than the custom Xmx value.
