    p_manage_01: "Write Error b_manage_01_c"

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    In running p_manage_01 there are hundreds of "Write Error b_manage_01_c" messages, followed by:
    b_manage_01_c: z97 check failure.
    Job Suspended !!!


    b_manage_01_c process number 8 was trying to write a file (p_manage_01_3_8) bigger than 2 GB. (2,147,483,648 bytes).

    This problem is solved in Aleph 21, there a 2 GB limit doesn't exist anymore.

    Additional Information

    The problem of the large file size may be a result of a huge number of identical index entries.

    Libraries who are participating in Authority data from the German National Libraryhave fields like "100##$$pAuthor name$$9(DE-588) 1234567-8 whereas $9 contains the identification number of the AUT record. Character string "(DE-588)" is always identical and results in thousands of (needless) index entries. Therefore $$9 should be avoided in xxx01/tab/tab11_word like
    100#1 -9 01 WPE WRD
