2178702 - Multiplex writer node update causes hang - SAP IQ 15.2


  • Update transaction running in a SAP IQ 15.2 MPX writer node is not responding or completing
  • Subsequent transactions that need to update the same tables become stuck waiting on the initially hung transaction to complete 
  • Monitoring output from stored procedure sp_iqtransaction, sp_iqcontext and sp_iqlocks shows a long running update transaction stuck with an OPENCURSOR in a PREPARED state that does not move.  It will also show subsequent transactions requiring locks on the same table resources becoming stuck waiting on the completion of the initial transaction.   
  • Eventually all connections and context slots in the IQ server become full and no further connections are serviced giving the impression that the entire IQ server is now hung 
  • Capturing pstacks of the IQ process show one or more threads stuck in a loop on a call to s_phash::ReHashInternal similar to the following
