When I am trying to check the consistency of background jobs in SM65, It is throwig a runtime error TSV_TNEW_PAGE_ALLOC_FAILED. Kindly look into the below text message from ST22.



No storage space available for extending an internal table.

What happened?

You attempted to extend an internal table, but the required space was

not available.

What can you do?

Make a note of the actions and input which caused the error.

To resolve the problem, contact your SAP system administrator.

You can use transaction ST22 (ABAP Dump Analysis) to view and administer

termination messages, especially those beyond their normal deletion


Try to find out (e.g. by targetted data selection) whether the

transaction will run with less main memory.

If there is a temporary bottleneck, execute the transaction again.


If the error persists, ask your system administrator to check the

following profile parameters:

o ztta/roll_area (1.000.000 - 15.000.000)

Classic roll area per user and internal mode

usual amount of roll area per user and internal mode

o ztta/roll_extension (10.000.000 - 500.000.000)

o abap/heap_area_total (100.000.000 - 1.500.000.000)

Amount of memory (malloc) for all users of an application

server. If several background processes are running on

one server, temporary bottlenecks may occur.

Of course, the amount of memory (in bytes) must also be

available on the machine (main memory or file system swap).


The operating system must be set up so that there is also

enough memory for each process. Usually, the maximum address

space is too small.

Ask your hardware manufacturer or your competence center

about this.

In this case, consult your hardware vendor

abap/heap_area_dia: (10.000.000 -

Restriction of memory allocated to the heap with malloc

for each dialog process.

Parameters for background processes:

abap/heap_area_nondia: (10.000.000 -

Restriction of memory allocated to the heap with malloc

for each background process.

Other memory-relevant parameters are:

em/initial_size_MB: (35-1200)

Extended memory area from which all users of an

application server can satisfy their memory requirement.

Error analysis

The internal table "IT_18" could not be enlarged further. To allow

error handling, the table had to be deleted before this log was

created. So, if you branch to the ABAP debugger from the display

of this log, the table will there be displayed with 0 rows.

At the moment of the termination, the following data was

determined for the respective internal table:


Storage location: "Session memory"

Row width: 1296

Number of rows: 1166120

Allocated rows: 1166120

Newly requested rows: 8 (in 1 blocks)


Last error logged in SAP kernel


Component............ "EM"

Place................ "SAP-Server ord-sapprd_PRD_00 on host ord-sapprd (wp 0)"

Version.............. 37

Error code........... 7

Error text........... "Warning: EM-Memory exhausted: Workprocess gets PRIV "

Description.......... " "

System call.......... " "

Module............... "emxx.c"

Line................. 1878

How to correct the error

The amount of storage space (in bytes) filled at termination time was:

Roll area...................... 1709536

Extended memory (EM)........... 408685712

Assigned memory (HEAP)......... 1190561024

Short area..................... " "

Paging area.................... 57344

Maximum address space.......... " "

You may able to find an interim solution to the problem

in the SAP note system. If you have access to the note system yourself,

use the following search criteria:






If you cannot solve the problem yourself and you wish to send

an error message to SAP, include the following documents:

1. A printout of the problem description (short dump)

To obtain this, select in the current display "System->List->

Save->Local File (unconverted)".

2. A suitable printout of the system log

To obtain this, call the system log through transaction SM21.

Limit the time interval to 10 minutes before and 5 minutes

after the short dump. In the display, then select the function

"System->List->Save->Local File (unconverted)".

3. If the programs are your own programs or modified SAP programs,

supply the source code.

To do this, select the Editor function "Further Utilities->


4. Details regarding the conditions under which the error occurred

or which actions and input led to the error.

System environment

SAP Release.............. "640"

Application server....... "ord-sapprd"

Network address.......... ""

Operating system......... "Windows NT"

Release.................. "5.2"

Hardware type............ "16x Intel 80158"

Character length......... 16 Bits

Pointer length........... 32 Bits

Work process number...... 0

Kindly suggest me the options ASAP as this is happened in the production system.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Suneetha,

    The program that is being run by SM65 is chewing up the whole memory extended memory available - and hence it dumps.

    Instead of running this txn SM65 consistency check in dialog - try running th progarm RSBTCCNS in the background. And this will solve your problem.

    Hopethis helps.

    Pls award suitably.

      When i got the same error in BI 7.0 system, I have taken following action.

      Check the value of parameter ztta/roll_area . it should be 6.5 MB if your system is 64 bit.

      Anyway, in my case or in others, when dealing with FINBASIS, the recommendation is to increase


      upto 100-200 MB.

      See the note 741864

      Mostly problem will be with memory parameters only. Check SAP notes as per your Vesions

      Hope this helps

    Hi Sunnetha,

    SM65 is a resource hungry tcode, and always suggested to run during a off-business hours. Try to run when there is not much acvitity going on in the system.

    I'm not very much sure, but please check how many entries there in TBTCO table. as the dump gives indication of


    Check RSBTCDEL(2) program is running daily or not. This runs as a background job to delete the old job information from the tables TBTC*. If this has not run, then you can run and delete older job logs and then retry.

    Which system you're using? ECC or BW??

    Note - parameter settings of BW largely varies from that of a ECC system.

    Hi Suneetha,

    This performance problem has been corrected in the following SAP Note,please check whether you have the relevant SP and that should solve your issue.

    Hope this helps.

    And if you have that SP already, please do an apple-to-apple comparison of the SAP Note mentioned below to that in your system.

    If you are not at the relevant SP level asmentioned in my previous post,please go ahead with that first.

    Hope this helps.
