  • The following message is printed in the ASE errorlog:

Server Could not obtain required number 'xxxxx' of resource of type 'Pss Heap Memory'. Since the process absolutely requires this resource, it is going to wait indefinitely till the resource becomes available. Please increase the configuration parameter 'heap memory per user'.

An earlier indefinite wait for resource of type 'Pss Heap Memory' by this process is over as 'xxxxx' resources became available. Process is continuing further.
