What happened?

The current program had to be terminated because of an

error when installing the R/3 System.

The program had already requested 1303069936 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?

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


Set the system profile parameters

- abap/heap_area_dia

- abap/heap_area_nondia

to a maximum of 1303069936. Then reduce the value by 10.000.000 to be on the

safe side.

Then restart the SAP System.

Error analysis

When the program was running, it was established that more

memory was needed than the operating system is able to provide savely.

    Sounds like the program is using too much memory space, probably due to large internal tables.

    What is the program name? If it is a standard SAP report, you can check in SAP Support Portal for applicable notes.

    If it is a custom development, it needs to be tuned so that it processes the data in blocks rather than all at the same time.

    Yes , i think so . the problem is not a standard SAP report , it is a copa customer report.

    But anyway, has a good idea to slove this issue ? Such as change some memory parameters ......

    Note : We are using 32bit OS with ibm-x3650 server. Os startup parameters also include "/3GB" and "/PAE".

    • Cure the cause, not the symptoms. Rather than tweaking parameters, better have this program rewritten, so it does not read so much data into memory at one time.

      This cannot be done from a distance, some experienced person needs to sit down, analyse and fix.
