The variable UC_ILM_SETTINGS, has a key named ACT_CONTAINER with a current value of '001'.
Why is this value set to '001' when we have defined a partition change every first Day of the Month? Is it because we have defined 12 online partitions and the ILM section of the System Overview shows Partition nr. 13 as the most current one?
and we said …
This is because of the circulating mechanism.
If all partitions are created (which are defined in the container) we go back and start with number one (this a question for the business logic, there is no influence of the application).
Note: this is not related to the name of the partition which you can see in the data dictionary (or in the system overview).
