All data that is currently in the data cache is saved to the data volumes. This ensures that the SAP liveCache database is in a consistent state.

The SAP liveCache database is transferred to the OFFLINE operational state.

If an error occurs during the stop, you can use the kernel log knldiag (Current Messages) and the current lcinit.log Logs to analyze the cause of the error.

The stopping of the SAP liveCache database is also logged in the SysLog of your SAP system (transaction SM21).
