2241453 - Targeted CR List for ASE 15.7 SP137

Symptom

The purpose of this KBA is to help SAP customers obtain a general idea of potential fixed situations in future Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) EBF/SP or PL releases. Please be sure to read the Disclaimer below.

If the EBF/SP has been released, check the CR list and coverletter at the service.sap.com.

Disclaimer: This document lists the targeted (not committed) release dates and the targeted fixed CR list for each release. Please be aware that the purpose of this posting is solely to provide you, our customers with estimated release dates and targeted CR lists. SAP does not commit to releasing on the specified dates or to including the CR fixes in the said release. While every effort will be made to meet the said targets, changes can occur at any time. It is also possible (although unlikely) that SAP may decide not to release an EBF/SP that was previously scheduled for release.

CR NumberDescription
671152 KBA 2280641 : In rare circumstances, a 3475 error, "There is no space available in SYSLOGS to log a record for which space has been reserved in database ' < name > '" may be reported for a mixed log and data database that has a user defined threshold defined for the log segment.
684701 The "for xml" clause is being stripped off from the text which is saved in syscomments. This causes the procedure output to change unexpectedly (output is no longer in XML format) following upgrade.
706483 A NULL value may be inserted into TEXT/IMAGE/UNITEXT columns that do not allow NULL values during the execution of an INSERT-SELECT command if the attribute "dealloc_first_txtpg" is not set to 1 in the source table.
713340 KBA 2210395 Static configuration parameters are lost after running alter thread pool to modify thread count.
729246 A new option WITH COPYONLY= < target_file_path > is added to LOAD DATABASE and LOAD TRANSACTION commands. It allows to extract a DATABASE DUMP or a TRANSACTION DUMP from a storage system and copy it into a local directory.
730962 When running installhasvss, an error message indicating that it has 'failed to locate the sybsecuritydb' is hit.
731023 KBA 2063257 - Relax restriction when we raise the message 3193 in relation to ALTER DATABASE OFF at LOAD TRANSACTION time, by delaying the generation of holes in a load sequence to ONLINE DATABASE time.
732131 A 3474 error, "During redo the page timestamp value is less than old timestamp from log. Page #= < > , object id = < > , page timestamp= < > . Log old timestamp= < > . Log record marker = ( < > ).", may be reported during LOAD TRANSACTION if either the built-in reserve_identity() or the dbcc set_identity_burn_max() command have been executed when the transaction dump was taken.
736079 A cheaper plan containing the merge_union_all operator may be skipped in favor of a more expensive plan using a sort operator on top of an append_union_all.
737093 When a table is partitioned based on a list of values including the NULL value, the NULL value may be ignored when compared to NULL, leading to wrong results.
747441 Signal 11 on crp_var when database in 'dbo use only'
749560 When the server level option 'abstract plan sharing' is enabled but the session level option is disabled by 'set plan shared off', the shared AP is still loaded.
752523 Switch ASE_JAVA support from COTS JavaVM towards SAP JVM delivery
756284 When there are nested subqueries with invariant materialization steps in each respective subquery, it is possible that a signal 11 can occur.
759590 When SAP ASE is upgraded and the higher version server writes a new configuration file after upgrade is complete, then under some circumstances that configuration file may contain entries that were unexpectedly changed from what the older version server originally configured.
760979 On AIX platform, in rare circumstances,buffer unlatch raises 871 error OR CREATE INDEX may fail with error 1289:"Internal Error in lock manager routine: Invalid lock mode exclusive page, requested by task (family id < > , spid < > ) conflicts with existing family request mode exclusive page belonging to task (family id < > , spid < > ).
762610 A segmentation fault may occur when a query is executed on the monSpinlockActivity table when the last owner of a spinlock was a native thread and the ASE server has failed over to the standby server.
763497 In rare cases, the backup server could hang waiting for input on a pipe that is never received. The stack trace of the sybmultbuf process that causes the problem will show the function sys_ipc_io().
768872 Systemwide switch (traceflag) 3605 is left active if a fatal error occurs while outputting diagnostic information for an invalid column length error. A stacktrace that includes the function colleen() will be seen in the errorlog followed by SWITCH SERVERWIDE ON 3605 followed by a fatal error. Traceflag 2779 disables the function turns on this switch to output additional diagnostics on the column length error.
770419 the CR need close.
771528 The new ODBC driver was updated to use the “optimal” TDS batching feature when ODBC uses parameter sets like this: SQLSetStmtAttrW( stmt, SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE, (SQLPOINTER)size, SQL_IS_UINTEGER ); This picks language batch and causes error 16817, "A query plan cannot be generated for DML command executed with homogeneous batch parameters. The batch was aborted.".
773524 Under rare circumstances, when a transaction rollback fails, the transaction remains open erroneously and allows other concurrent transactions to progress. Eventually this failed transaction becomes the oldest open transaction and prevents the transaction log truncation thus making the database unusable when the log last chance threshold is reached. Additionally if SAP ASE is restarted, the database recovery fails and the database is marked suspect. The new database option "allow db suspect on rollback error" if enabled allows a forceful shutdown of the database and marks the database suspect if a non-recoverable error is hit during a transaction rollback. This provides the ability to the end-user to execute a last DUMP TRAN allowing to archive all the transactions up to the point the rollback failed.
776004 KBA 2107233 - Adding multiple partitions with later table using separate statements in a single batch can raise Msg 712 insufficient heap memory.

793902 In some cases, the database server might report error 12034, "Collection of monitoring data for table < table_name > failed due to insufficient memory. Retry when there is less load, or fewer users, on the server. < nn > rows were not returned because < xx > bytes of memory could not be allocated" and error 8601, "Process < spid1 > tried to keep the PSS for process < spid2 > when it already had the PSS for process < spid3 > kept", and the affected process would be terminated.
793910 Provide the ability to capture application workload with the Workload Analyzer feature. Note that analysis and replay of the workload is only supported by using the ASE Cockpit component in ASE 16.0 SP02 or later releases.
793950 The message "current process infected with signal 11" in the module 'GenCondensedText::isInTree' followed by a stack trace that includes the modules 'GenCondensedText::getAghead' and 'GenCondensedText::generateAggregate' may be reported in the error log when running show_condensed_text() built-in function.
793963 Dataserver spids might hang indefinitely waiting on the MASS_DESTROY bit to be reset when tempdbs are used.
794010 KBA 2304324 : When imdb devices are configured, they will cause error 12055 when querying on monDeviceSpaceUsage .

794128 Wait Event 215 (waiting on run queue after sleep) is not reported in the monProcessWaits table
794556 Executing multiple queries on the monMemoryUsage table may result in reduction in the amount of free memory available in the database server's Global Fragment Pool. This may cause further queries on the monMemoryUsage table or other commands in the database server to fail.
794568 In a replication environment with DDL enabled, if a GRANT with predicated privilege command is larger than 255 characters, it will be truncated mistakenly, whereby the truncated command will be replicated to the SAP Replication Server, which will cause the replication stream to stop because the truncated GRANT command cannot be recognized by the target database server.
794666 The monDeviceSpaceUsage will leak memory from Global Fragment Pool under some exceptional circumstance.
794764 Under rare circumstances, the message "current process infected with signal 11" in the module 'CgpGlobal::CgpTransform' followed by a stack trace that include the modules 'CgpGlobal::CgpGenerate' and 'Optimize' may be reported in the error log if a batch with IF EXISTS condition is executed.
794920 Under Windows NT, ASE may not be able to create new native threads to execute UDF or ADT constructs with JavaVM as soon as the amount of these requests exceeds the value of the 'pci_xopt_maxthreads' option of sp_pciconfig whose default value is 1056.
794963 A 3475 error, "There is no space available in SYSLOGS to log a record for which space has been reserved in database < dbid > (id < id_no > )", may be reported after a database dump with a log hole is loaded into a database with a data hole instead.
794972 In some rare cases, update statistics command run along with reorg defrag or other online utility could end up in an undetected deadlock.

Alternatively a timeslice error in the same module ’kbfusage’ may be reported.
795006 Under rare circumstances, a LOAD CUMULATIVE or LOAD TRANSACTION command might hang when the database in the dump has some hole and the target database does not. The stack trace of the hang process will show the modules 'rec__reconcile_dmap', 'crdb_update_sysusages', and 'buf_get_latch'.
795071 When an ALTER DATABASE OFF command is executed on a database that has been created with asynchronous initialization, a 695 error, "An attempt was made to read logical page < > for database < > ( < > )), object 'syslogs' (8), index 'syslogs' (0), partition 'syslogs_8' (8) from disk. Wrong logical page < > ' was brought into cache 'default data cache'. If pages are being signed, this may indicate a signature check failure." in the module 'getpage__noscan' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'altdb_shrink' and 'altdb__move_extents' may be reported in the database server error log.
795239 In rare circumstances, the server may hit a timeslice error in the modeule des_checkpoint_flush_sysstats().
795278 In rare cases, some extents may not be deallocated when dropping a table or index if an extent is part of the seven first extents in an allocation page and only the first page is allocated in this extent. The execution of DBCC CHECKALLOC may report a 2540 error, however no corruption or data loss is associated with this error.
795382 Spurious "invalid column length" errors may be reported by DBCC CHECKTABLE on encrypted columns and when running sp_post_xpload.
795702 KBA 2281187. Signal 11 or signal 10 in routine memtextlen(), then procedure cache memory pool is corrupted with infected with signal in mem_pageallocate(). If a related stored procedure has xml parameter (@var_xml text) and it has statement using XML builtin function XMLTABLE which uses parameter @var_xml, then please drop and recreate the procedure to use 'with recompile' option to avoid using cached query plan for the procedure.
795780 In rare circumstances, a 605 error "An attempt was made to fetch logical page < > from cache 'default data cache'. Page belongs to database < > , object < > , index < > , partition < > and not to database < > , object < > , index < > , partition < > ." may be reported in the SAP ASE error log during the execution of an online reorg rebuild command on a table whose descriptor is bound to the metadata objects cache.
795809 During the execution of CREATE or ALTER DATABASE, if SAP ASE fails to allocate space for the system table SYSDAMS while the option 'allow incremental dumps' is disabled, SAP ASE is incorrectly aborting the command after printing the warning message "The allocation of extents for sysdams in database ' < name > ' failed". The command should fail only if the option 'allow incremental dumps' is enabled.
795886 KBA 2312920 - In rare circumstances, a timeslice error in the module 'bt__lockprevpg' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'bt__pgdealloc' and 'hkgc_garbagecollect' may be reported in the SAP ASE error log while a heavy activity of concurrent DML commands on Data Only Locked tables is taking place that requires index pages to be shrunk.
796038 The overhead rate might become 100% at the beginning of a workload capture.
796565 KBA 2290005: The embedded HTTP server for ASE Webservices allows older ciphers and protocols that are now considered weak, this CR is created to update the HTTP server for ASE Webservices use the latest ciphers and protocols.
796657 ODBC : 'sp_drv_getcomment' was causing slowdown because of table scan on syscomments table.
796735 In rare circumstances, DUMP TRANSACTION may hang in the module ‘cm__waitfor_io’ while heavy activity of concurrent DML commands on Data Only Locked tables is taking place that requires index pages to be shrunk. This will prevent the log from being archived.
796916 KBA 2294241: SAP ASE might encounter an infected with a signal 11 (SIGSEGV) in the function mda__traverse_lock_bucket when accessing the monLocks table. The stacktrace will be reported in the SAP ASE errorlog.
796980 KBA 2297748 : Under rare circumstances, a 6902 error "Page timestamp value falls between the old and new timestamps from log. Page #=3, object id = 1, page timestamp= < ts > . Log: old timestamp= < ts2 > , new timestamp= < ts3 > . Log record marker..." may be reported in the SAP ASE error log for commands whose changes are mistakenly logged in a different database. Alternatively a 614 error "Adaptive Server accessed a row that has an illegal length of 0 while in data base ...", followed by a 3478 error "During undo the page timestamp value is less than new timestamp from log. Page #=22, object id = 2, page timestamp= < ts > . Log new timestamp= < ts > . Log record marker..." may be reported.
797119 The stored procedure execution may lead to signal 11 when the stored procedure is created in same transaction for a database with 'ddl in tran' option set. Alternatively other system errors related to memory manager may be observed.
797184 Post commit shrink feature is disabled by default. To enable this feature, when instructed, bootstrap ASE with trace flag 3991, or execute on a live system the command ‘set switch serverwide on 3991 with override’.
797492 An 814 error, “Keep count of buffer ' < > ' in cache ‘ < > ' holding logical page ‘ < > ’ in database ' < > ' has become negative” may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when an INSERT command is executed on a Data Only Locked Table.
797534 Under rare circumstances the error "A01: SYBMULTBUF ERROR: Failed to write to copy device in" may be printed in the ASE backup server error log when a database dump is loaded using the backup sever API.
