2763915 - Random memory corruption with different stack due to overflowing a page during reformatting - SAP ASE


  • An "infected with signal 11" error in the module OptGlobal::OptGlobal() together with a stack trace appears in the ASE errorlog:

Current process (0x1910021) infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Address 0x0x000000000089b4b2 (OptGlobal::OptGlobal(Node<Lop>*, tree*, OptPool*)+0x4260), siginfo (code, address) = (1, 0x0x0000000000000018) 

  • Various different patterns of stack traces may be seen in the ASE errorlog if a query is using reformat strategy on a table with row size that is potentially bigger than the ASE configured page size.
  • Memory corruption may get into different stack traces with different segmentation fault routine names.
  • An example of a complete stack trace is available under Attachments.
