2475104 - DUMP TRANSACTION is hung with status "sleeping" - SAP ASE


  • A process (spid) executiing a DUMP TRANSACTION command with a status of "sleeping" is shown in the sysprocesses table:

spid          cmd                              blocked          hostname          hostprocess         login          status
-----           -----                               ----------          -------------          ----------------         -------         --------
157       DUMP TRANSACTION      0                    <host>             9920                  <login>      sleeping

  • "kill <spid>" does not kill the spid
  • "kill <spid> with force" does remove the spid from the sp_who output but the process remains in sysprocesses.
  • The  ALTER DATABASE command to expand the database is blocked by the DUMP TRANSACTION process.
