    acq-17: "File size too large"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    The $alephe_scratch/ p_acq_17 job log, produced by the acq-17 ("List of Orders per Budget") Service, has the following errors:

    I/O error : file 'TP1'
    error code: 9/194 (ANS74), pc=0, call=1, seg=0
    194 File size too large

    I/O error : file 'FORM_IN'
    error code: 9/194 (ANS74), pc=0, call=1, seg=0
    194 File size too large

    Cause:
    The xxx50 $data_scratch/acq_17_01 temporary file exceeds the file size limit of 2 GB.

    Resolution:
    acq-17 needs to be run with parameters which produce a smaller output file.

    The variables at work here are the budget number:

    setenv p_budget_number "SPAN_FMO-2-13"

    and the hierarchy:

    setenv p_hierarchy "Y"

    Run the job with a different budget number and/or with "Use Hierarchy Budget" = "N".

    Note: It seems that, once a greater-than-2GB acq_17_01 is generated, all p_acq_17 runs (regardless of the budget-numbers) will fail with the above-described errors, and the bad, greater-than-2GB acq_17_01 will *not* be overwritten as it should be. We have found that the bad acq_17_01 file needs to be deleted or renamed before any subsequent acq-17 runs will be successful.
