2584074 - Update requests stuck in sm13, enqueue lock entries remain after end of session on Windows


  • Some enqueue locks in SM12 are not released automatically, though the enqueue owner already logged out. These enqueue locks block other business transactions.  
  • Lots of update requests in sm13 in ‘Initial’ status and cannot be processed. Enqueue keys belong to the update requests can be detected in sm12 enqueue lock list. And if you manually repeat these ‘Initial' status requests, then these requests might be pending on 'Started' status or 'Auto(dia)'. 
  • Find Update server from 'Update Header' of update request. Select the update request, find menu 'Goto' -> 'Update header' or click 'Top Hat' icon to see update server as follows:   
  • update header2.jpg
    Figure 1: Update Header

  • Figure 2: Update Server

    Then go to the update server and find corresponding update work process trace, you might see following log:

    Next, follow-on errors of the following type usually occur in the same work process trace.

    X  [esnti.c 2893]VirtualFree(000007DE99A00000,0,32768) returned 0
     *** ERROR => <EsNT> error: [esnti.c 2893]VirtualFree(000007DE99A00000,0,32768) returned 0
    (lastError = 487) [esnti.c      3541]
    X  {root-id=FA163E4942951ED8819C461526FB442F}_{conn-id=00000000000000000000000000000000}_0

    Y  *** ERROR => dyInitSpa: EmAlloc failed [dyimode.c    2703]
    M  ***LOG R1U=> Error in EmAlloc& [dyimode.c    2709

    In this case, error code 487 means:
    C:\>net helpmsg 487
    Attempt to access invalid address.
    From the trace, session initialization has an error due to Extended Memory allocation failed.

  • The external symptom is the same with symptom described in KBA 2322108, but reason is different. It will happen even if we have reserved Extended Memory for session initialization. It’s only occurs on Windows operating system platform. Repeating 'Initial' requests cannot resolve the issue.
