SAP DB2 Backup Lan-free failed with error BKI9213E

#1
Hi TSM Gurus,

Need your advice and your help to solve this problem.

When do backup DB2 SAP on unix via LAN-Free to tape, the backup always failed after few seconds.
This is the error message:

BKI5016I: Time: 08/01/15 15:59:38 New TSM session created: MGMNT-CLASS: STANDARD, TSM-Server: TSMSERVER, type: SIMPLE
BKI9213E: A memory allocation request failed at position: esd-datablockallocator.cpp(431).

thanks,
Regards,

Looks like TDP is running out of memory. The process is running as part of the DB2 database. So it should use the same ulimits as the DB2 instance owner. Eventually the memory limits could be lifted up.

Do you use a large number of parallel sessions? Or a large buff size? You could try to decrease them.

Has this worked before?

Thanks for reply tomP,

We use 8 parallel backup session to tape and default buff size (131072 bytes). The backup process via LAN is work fine, but failed when backup via LAN-Free.
Can we do backup without decrease parallel session on TSM? How to increase memory limits on DB2?
