DUMP error - time_out executing general ledger report

hi all

one of the functional consultant executing general ledger report in FICO he got time_out error.the error is

What happened?

The program "SAPLFAGL_DOCUMENT_RELATION" has exceeded the maximum permitted

runtime without

interruption and has therefore been terminated.

What can you do?

Note down which actions and inputs caused the error.

To process the problem further, contact you SAP system


Using Transaction ST22 for ABAP Dump Analysis, you can look

at and manage termination messages, and you can also

keep them for a long time.

Error analysis

After a specific time, the program is terminated to make the work area

available to other users who may be waiting.

This is to prevent a work area being blocked unnecessarily long by, for


- Endless loops (DO, WHILE, ...),

- Database accesses with a large result set

- Database accesses without a suitable index (full table scan)

The maximum runtime of a program is limited by the system profile

parameter "rdisp/max_wprun_time". The current setting is 600 seconds. If this

time limit is

exceeded, the system attempts to cancel any running SQL statement or

signals the ABAP processor to stop the running program. Then the system

waits another 60 seconds maximum. If the program is then still active,

the work process is restarted.

to correct the error

Programs with long runtime should generally be started as background

jobs. If this is not possible, you can increase the system profile

parameter "rdisp/max_wprun_time".

Depending on the cause of the error, you may have to take one of the

following measures:

- Endless loop: Correct program;

- Dataset resulting from database access is too large:

Instead of "SELECT * ... ENDSELECT", use "SELECT * INTO internal table

(for example);

- Database has unsuitable index: Check index generation.

If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to

find an interim solution in an SAP Note.

If you have access to SAP Notes, carry out a search with the following


"TIME_OUT" " "



If you cannot solve the problem yourself and want to send an error

notification to SAP, include the following information:

1. The description of the current problem (short dump)

To save the description, choose "System->List->Save->Local File


2. Corresponding system log

Display the system log by calling transaction SM21.

Restrict the time interval to 10 minutes before and five minutes

after the short dump. Then choose "System->List->Save->Local File


3. If the problem occurs in a problem of your own or a modified SAP

program: The source code of the program

In the editor, choose "Utilities->More


4. Details about the conditions under which the error occurred or which

actions and input led to the error.

i already increased dialogue workprocess time.but i got same can i solve the problem

    hi vasu,

    your current setting for rdisp/max_wprun_time is 600 seconds. That report which is run by your functional consultant is running more than 600 seconds. That's why it's being terminated by SAP.

    You could change your SAP parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time to more than 600 seconds or just ask your functional consultant to run that report to background job, not dialog work process.

      you need to look at the report in details and see where it taking time. Could be large selection on non-optimized database tables..

      - check query selection ( large dataset fetching)

      - check database statistics for GL tables

      - check proper indexes for GL tables

      - check DB buffer / Filesystem IO performance...etc..

    Time out error can occur if the report is taking too long to complete due to non optimal explain plan. Check the SQL statement explain plan if the best access path is taken. Post the explain plan together with the available indexes. And do ensure you have set all the database parameters correctly. Refer to Note 830576 if you are on Oracle 10.2.
