    p-print-03 fails with error: 'Attempt to access item beyond bounds of memory (Signal 11)'

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    p-print-03 services fails always at the same System number with error

    Execution error : file '/exlibris/aleph/a20_1/aleph/exe/docx_to_marc.gnt'
    error code: 114, pc=0, call=100, seg=0
    114 Attempt to access item beyond bounds of memory (Signal 11)

    Record exceeds limit: expand_doc_bib_z30 in use

    The expand programm expand_doc_bib_z30 is used for service p-print-03

    PRINT-REC expand_doc_bib_z30 CONF=expand_doc_bib_z30_vufind,TAG=852

    Note the warning
    ! Note that this program should be used with special care as
    ! it can create performance problems, due to the potential
    ! overflow of the buffers. This program should be avoided by
    ! libraries that have numerous item records linked to one
    ! bibliographic record (usually due to the individual listing
    ! of serial issues).

    The limit of 100000 bytes for the record in question are exceeded and results in a crash of service p-print-03.

    This behavior will not be changed.
    See possible workarounds in 'Additional information'

    Additional Information

    Possible workarounds: 1. Exclude the problematic record from the input file 2. Avoid function expand_doc_bib_z30 in PRINT-REC 3. Reduce the number of fields for the expand of the bibliographic data
