2355918 - Flooding of ABAP system with "Load info" messages


The servers sporadically encounter overload of the dispatch queues and broken connection to the message server. As a result, updates terminate and background jobs getting cancelled. 

From Dispatch queue statistics(SAPMMC --> Queue Statistic or SM51--> Go-->Infomation-->Queue Information), there are high number of waiting requests (e.g. tens of thousands) in DIA work process.

From system log SM21, error "Failed to send a request to the message server" is observed repeately in dispatch process.

From STAD, it is found that the application server is flooded with "<AD_LOAD_INFO>" work requests from "UNKNOWN" user.

In the Dispatcher developer trace file dev_disp, sequence of the following three trace has been written into the trace more than several 100 times per second:

DpSendLoadInfo: quota for load / queue fill level = xxxxxxxx / xxxxxxxx
DpSendLoadInfo: queue XXX now with high load, load / queue fill level = xxxxxxxx / xxxxxxxx
DpSendLoadInfo: queue XXX no longer with high load

Note that it is okay if these trace entries are written sporadically into the trace (e.g., one per second), but they should not appear several 100 times per second.



The ABAP system runs on NetWeaver 7.40, 7.50 with SAP kernel 7.45.
