2244546 - monDeviceSpaceUsage queries fail on NFS devices - SAP ASE for BS


SELECT queries accessing the MDA table, monDeviceSpaceUsage,  fail with timeslice errors when:

  • "dump database' is running alongside heavy activity on the system
  • The ASE  database devices, are NFS-mounted

The offending queries are:

SELECT distinct FileSystemName, FileSystemSizeMB, FileSystemFreeMB FROM master..monDeviceSpaceUsage

INSERT #filesystem_metrics SELECT DISTINCT InstanceID, FileSystemName, FileSystemFreeMB, FileSystemSizeMB, getutcdate() AS TIMESTAMP_UTC FROM master..monDeviceSpaceUsage

Timeslice errors are reported in the ASE errorlog for this query execution. 
The accompanying stacktrace references any or all of the functions: __xstat64, __lxstat, mda__get_FileInfo(), mda_populate_monDeviceSpaceUsage()
