Dear All,

My functional pll are running a huge report (Payroll Report) while executing the report they get an ABAP DUMP



Short text

The system is configured incorrectly.

What happened?

The current program had to be terminated because of an

error when installing the R/3 System.

The program had already requested 974959200 bytes from the operating

system with 'malloc' when the operating system reported after a

further memory request that there was no more memory space


What can you do?

Note which actions and input led to the error.

For further help in handling the problem, contact your SAP administrator


You can use the ABAP dump analysis transaction ST22 to view and manage

termination messages, in particular for long term reference.

In the system profile, set the parameters

-abap/heap_area_dia and


to a maximum of 974959200. To be on the safe side, reduce the value by 10,000,


Then restart the SAP system.


As per the dump i have changed the parameters of both

-abap/heap_area_dia and


to 6GB and -abap/heap_area_total to 7GB.

I'm running ECC6.0 on REDHAT LINUX. This is a development system and the physical memory is 4GB and SWAP is 12 GB.

Please assist me in resolving the issue.
