    PDS in a loop

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 3

    Last night, our CRON job which runs UTIL-X-9 failed with the following error:
    sort: can't map anonymous memory: Resource temporarily unavailable

    We killed the job and restarted Metalib. Now, when we link to MetaLib , the system connects, but then keeps redirecting back and forth between PDS/SSO and Metalib.

    The PDS server log is full of stuff like this:
    2005-05-09 10:44:49 [PDSSso] RESP url =
    2005-05-09 10:44:49 [PDSSso]

    When the UTIL-X-9 cronjob fails and/or when vir01 is run without closing down MetaLib, the z54 session index is not properly reconstructed. Thus, when a user tried to access MetaLib, the system could not
    assign a session id and got into a loop.
    To resolve the problem, shut down MetaLib, run the clear_vir01 to completion (so session index is rebuilt) and then restart MetaLib in an orderly fashion.
