If the EBF/SP has been released, check the CR list and coverletter at the

Disclaimer: This document lists the targeted (not committed) release dates and the targeted fixed CR list for each release. Please be aware that the purpose of this posting is solely to provide you, our customers with estimated release dates and targeted CR lists. SAP does not commit to releasing on the specified dates or to including the CR fixes in the said release. While every effort will be made to meet the said targets, changes can occur at any time. It is also possible (although unlikely) that SAP may decide not to release an EBF/SP that was previously scheduled for release.

CR NumberDescription
393424 KBA 2159644 - The sp_monitor connection option may encounter an arithmetic overflow exception of any of the connections with active queries on the server has been established for a long period of time.
693491 A transient 605 error may be raised by a query against a table(lock scheme datarows) having des_bind and REORG REBUILD has just been done. Please use dbcc tune(des_unbind,dbid, objname) to unbind the object before REORG REBUILD to avoid the error.
735498 It can take a long time to detect that there has been a KILL of a REORG REBUILD and thus to start a rollback when a huge table is involved.
743958 Under some rare situation, the error, "Current process infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)" followed by a stack trace involving the module 'CgEvals::_CgCompVcol' may be reported if the plan has HASH join or MERGE join with numeric parameters in the join predicate.

774289 A 1105 error, "Can't allocate space for object ' < name > ' in database ' < db > ' because ' < segname > ' segment is full/has no free extents. If you ran out of space in syslogs, dump the transaction log. Otherwise, use ALTER DATABASE to increase the size of the segment", may be reported when ONLINE PARALLEL CREATE INDEX is executed with a large number of consumers and the default configuration is used.
775572 The 12334 error, "Attempts to read logical page `%ld`, virtpage `%ld` from virtual device `%d` for %S_PTNINFO failed due to read failure in prefetch.

778911 There may be a nan or NaN (not a number) reported in optimizer tracing that could result in poorly performing query plans. Optcriteria CR778911 will check that the range summary stats (such as range density and range unique) are non zero if there is at least one non-zero range cell in the histogram.
779495 KBA 2153917 : A 624 error: Adaptive Server failed to retrieve a row via its RID in database "dbname" because the requested RID has a higher number than the last RID on the page. may sometimes be encountered while rolling back a transaction containing an open cursor on an ALLPAGES LOCKED table with a clustered index and one or more nonclustered indexes, if DMLs within that transaction caused a page split of the data page on which the cursor was positioned.

Retry your command without the ' < > ' option to restart the defragmentation." may be reported during the execution of REORG DEFRAG with the option 'resume' enabled when it finds that the partition/table is marked fully defragmented. The expected behavior is to have the SAP ASE resume the defragmentation from the start of the object instead of prompting a re-issue of the command.
779826 When using stored procedures, showplan message wrongly indicates that a table in tempdb resides in an in-memory database.
779858 If the command sp_dumpoptimize is executed to change the allocation_threshold using either a suffix of this keyword or via 'archive=min|max|default', the value will be set in the Backup Server but it will be overwritten at dump time with a default value of 40% or with any previous value that has been configured using the full allocation_threshold keyword.
