EnvironmentProduct: OpenEdge

OS: All supported platforms
Question/Problem Description
After upgrading to 11.7.6 or 12.2 prostrct statistics fails with error 210 14684

PROSTRCT STATISTICS fails with reading a block 3414499000320 that cannot possibly be part of a 1945600 KByte area

stack from _dbutil reads:
Steps to Reproduce$ prostrct statistics dbname
Clarifying Information
PROSTRCT STATISTICS does not fail on all databases
PROSTRCT STATISTICS only fails on large databases with Type II storage areas
There were no failed online or offline PROSTRCT database structure changes before upgrading
PROSTRCT STATISTICS works in previous versions

DBTOOL Option 5 , DBANALYS, PROBKUP are all clean (no block corruption)

Database Structure verified with PROSTRCT LIST (screen vs .st vs ls -lat)
Database meta-schema structure verified with VST's:
  •  _AreaExtent matches _area
  •  _Filelist reports all extents in each area
  •  _DBStatus is found and field content is not empty
PROSTRCT STATISTICS still crashes after rebuilding the Control Area with PROSTRCT BUILDDB
Error MessageSYSTEM ERROR: Attempt to read block 3414499000320 which does not exist in area 10, database <dbname>. (210) (14684)
Defect NumberDefect OCTA-22517 / CONT-7228
Enhancement Number
PROSTRCT STATISTICS will fail with error (210) (14684) when it scans Object Blocks for their statistical information. The object list block scanning fails when more than one object list block exists for a Type II storage area.

This issue will affect databases that have many objects in the same Type II storage area: 
  • ~ 300+ for 4K database blocksize
  • ~ 600+ for 8K database blocksize
This can be identified by running DBANALYS for an area. If the reported object list block(s) is greater than 1, PROSTRCT STATISTICS will fail.

This issue was introduced by a change to prostrct statstics to resolve dependencies between prostrct statistics and dbanalysis reporting the free blocks after deleting many records. For further information refer to Article:
Upgrade to OpenEdge 11.7.7, 12.2.1, 12.3 or later where OCTA-22517 is fixed PROSTRCT STATISTICS object list block scanning.

A Documentation defect has been raised for the "Issues Fixed in OpenEdge 12.2.1", where OCTA-22517 is listed against ID reference "ADAS-22517", which is incorrect and relates to an unrelated and entirely different issue:  PASOE 18320 Error "An error occurred processing the POST request"
Option 1: Use _dbutil from a previous version of the same Major/Minor version to run PROSTRCT STATISTICS
cp dlc1175/_dbutil wrk/_dbutil1175
wrk/_dbutil1175 prostrct statistics <dbname>

Option 2: Spread objects across additional storage areas so that only one object-list block is needed for fewer objects in the Type II area. This creates an opportunity for a database re-org that may be outstanding.
  • Less than 300 database objects for 4KB database blocksize
  • Less than 600 database objects for 8KB database blocksize
