Time Limit exceeded in VA01 User exit

Dear All,

Nowadays we're getting average of 25 dumps of Time Limit Exceeded in VA01 User exit MV45AFZB.

We are calling this transaction in Background Mode and in last one year we've not done any changes in this user exit.

Only select single statements queries are there.

Request your inputs to identify the problem.

  • Manivel,

    What information does the ST22 Dumps Provide ?

    Is it going for dump at the same logic everytime ?

    Analyse the DUMP to get some leads on what exactly is causing the dump.


  • Hi Kiran,

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    The dump occurs at different logic in the same user exit (MV45AFZB).

    But all queries are select single only.

    It's not feasible to answer such questions on SCN. Your Basis admin will need to investigate this together with a qualified ABAPer locally.

    There could be 1001 reason for this error and short dump might not even show where the problem really is. Search in Google and you'll find many similar questions with similar replies.

    This is probably a question that you need to address to your local system administrators and developers, but what I would do as a functional consultant (if I am absolutely sure that this background creation worked for a huge number of documents, say, last week, that no configuration was changed, no notes were implemented, no custom developments in SD were done recently and that this is not some shady z-upload program) - I would try testing with small, then with big number of orders with recording, bapi, idoc in the hope that the problem is easily reproducible and can be isolated to a certain option or specific transactional data.

    One analysis what you can do is, first note down the dump time, go to SM21, maintain the time with 5 minutes difference (between from and to) and execute. You will get those dump list. Double click on that so that system would take you to next screen where it will also show more details including tcode.

    • Hi Sir,

      I've checked in SM21 based on the dump time. I was able to find out the log.

      But, the analysis is showing that t_code is VC/2 and the program is SAPMV45A.

      I've checked, we're not calling this transaction from anywhere (in custom development).

      Any idea on this?

    Either your findings might be wrong or you were checking with some other log. You need to check with the same error log
