    Talk to yous Basis guy he can increase the limit of the lock table parameters.

    Note: 746138


    This note describes the subsequent analysis performed to determine the cause of a lock table overflow.

    Other terms

    enque, enqueue, lock table overflow, ENQ_OVERFLOW, 16, EnquServerException

    Reason and Prerequisites

    The maximum number of locks in the lock table is subject to an upper limit that is set by profile parameters. The enque/table_size parameter determines the size of the lock table in KBs. You can use transaction SM12 -> Extras -> Statistics to determine both the maximum number and current number of entries.

    A lock table overflow may occur if:

    the lock table configuration is too small

    an application sets lots of locks

    the update hangs and, as a result, numerous locks inherited by the update task exist

    Up to now, subsequent analysis could not be performed to determine which lock types and which lock owners mainly contributed to the lock table overflow.
