Error 718



Message text

Memory allocation from process private memory is being performed by an incorrect process. Current Spid: '%d'. Owning Spid: '%d'. Memory: '0x%p'.This is an Adaptive Server internal error. Please contact Sybase Tech Support.


Before allocating a new PROC_HDR, Adaptive Server searches existing prochdrs to attempt to find free space from which to satisfy a memory request. In this search it encounters a PROC_HDR that is neither a global PROC_HDR (rare) nor owned by the spid requesting memory. Adaptive Server Enterprise should not be examining PROC_HDRs owned by another spid, so it raises this 718 error.


This is an internal Adaptive Server Enterprise error and there is no action that can be taken. Contact Sybase Technical Support.

Additional information
