2829412 - Database recovery taking too long - after an abnormal exit of the ASE Server - SAP ASE


A server went down abnormally for example:

  • shutdown with nowait
  • kill spid from the OS
  • ASE shutdown unexpectedly

When the server is restarted, it is taking a extraordinary amount of time to recover.  The dbcc showrecovery shows a large number of transactions to be recovered.  For example:

dbcc showrecovery (mydb) -- only a small portion of the report shown below
