    p_print_01: "I/O error : file 'TP1' ... File size too large"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    Description:
    The batch log for p_print_01 has the following error and no output is produced:

    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 '/exlibris/aleph/a16_1/tmp/SAV45610'
    error code: 4/6 (ANS85), pc=0, call=12, seg=0
    146 No current record defined for sequential read

    mv: cannot access /wrkspace/prod/nov01/scratch/print_01_2
    end

    The input file from p-ret-01 was 973,000 records.

    Resolution:
    Files output by ALEPH jobs have a limit of 2Gig (or, in some cases, 4Gig). Some jobs are set up to split the output across multiple files, but p_print_01 is not.

    The records written to the TP1 file (the $data_scratch/print_01_1 work file) are typically 3,000 bytes each. Thus, this file can accommodate 6 - 700,000 bib records.
