  • From Ribo output and dbcc sqltext(spid), ASE received the command that was sent from application, but have not sent out the results yet
  • The cancel was handled and an attention ack was sent to the client, but the subsequent command did not get executed. ASE seems to be waiting for the client to send next command, while the client is waiting for ASE to execute the command it sent.
  • Usually the issue can not be reproduced at will. It happens when the client sent a cancel followed by a new command.

  • Stack trace may happen at function 'gotattn' as follows:
