2.2 Advance Information on SAP HANA Architecture

As explained in the previous topic SAP HANA consists of Index server and XS.
Apart from this SAP HANA also contains Name Server, Preprocessor Server and Statistics Server.
Let’s have a close look into this.

Index Server:
    • Index server is the main SAP HANA database component
    • It contains the actual data stores and the engines for processing the data.
    • The index server processes incoming SQL or MDX statements in the context of authenticated sessions and transactions.
Persistence Layer:
The database persistence layer is responsible for durability and atomicity of transactions. It ensures that the database can be restored to the most recent committed state after a restart and that transactions are either completely executed or completely undone.

Preprocessor Server:
The index server uses the preprocessor server for analyzing text data and extracting the information on which the text search capabilities are based.

Name Server:
The name server owns the information about the topology of SAP HANA system. In a distributed system, the name server knows where the components are running and which data is located on which server.

Statistic Server:
The statistics server collects information about status, performance and resource consumption from the other servers in the system. The statistics server also provides a history of measurement data for further analysis.

Session and Transaction Manager:
The Transaction manager coordinates database transactions, and keeps track of running and closed transactions. When a transaction is committed or rolled back, the transaction manager informs the involved storage engines about this event so they can execute necessary actions.

XS Engine:
XS Engine is an optional component. Using XS Engine clients can connect to SAP HANA database to fetch data via HTTP.
