2130834 - monMemoryUsage queries fail in kbfusage, mda__MemUsg_one_FragmentPool - SAP ASE


You are running applications on SAP ASE database.

  • On non-SAP systems, you execute a query against monMemoryUsage monitoring table.  For example: select * from master..monMemoryUsage 
  • On SAP systems, you have enabled Memory  Usage data collector  in DBACockpit->Data Collector Framework

  • In both scenarios, the process terminates with a timeslice or signal 11 errors in the ASE errorlog at address kbfusage:

Current process (0x3b2f0086) infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Address 0x0x0000000001d85c7d (kbfusage+0x36d)

  • The errors are accompanied by a stacktrace referencing the functions:


  • And SQL Text and/or SQL causing error section showing query on MDA table monMemoryUsage
    • Below an example snippet that is commonly seen for a DBACockpit query:

AS UsedSize_Delta_KB, ((UsedSize/1024)) AS UsedSize_KB FROM  master..monMemoryUsage AS SRC_MONMEMORYUSAGE

  • Subsequently, further messages including error 1601 may be seen:

ksepollnetctlrWaitForCompletion:polled events 0x18 for vsn 127 psn 120 flags 0x80000000 kpid 994115631

Error: 1601, Severity: 17, State: 3
There are not enough 'user connections' available to start a new process. Retry when there are fewer active users, or ask your System Administrator to reconfigure ASE with more user connections.

See attached file Stack_Error_Example.txt for a full example from ASE log.
