Hi Iris,

We have observed a huge issue using KNIME tool with SAP HANA. The tables created using the HANA connector by KNIME tool, are all Row Store instead of most efficient Column Store format.

So, first of all Huge HANA in memory is blocked by Row Store, and even though the tables can be converted from Row Store -> Column Store in the SAP HANA, they leave huge memory fragmentation.

A table creation command, CREATE TABLE ABC would create Row Store table in HANA, but if the syntax was, CREATE COLUMN TABLE ABC , that would be Column Store.

Your thoughts on this ? Who might be able to look into the connector coding ?
