SAP HANA Backup Allocation Failed

During a HANA backup, you get an “Allocation Failed” error.
This is caused by a lack of memory.  If possible, increase the memory available to HANA by increasing the free memory at the O/S level (e.g. shutting down other HANA instances), or increase the global allocation limit.

  1. if you run into this error, you can also reduce the size of the data buffer of the backup (check parameter data_backup_buffer_size in global.ini -> backup)
