INSFP1POOL, CTLPAGES, Symbols and Logicals?

» close window

The Question is:

We have an Alpha ES40 cluster running VMS 7.3-1 and I have few users batch jobs
 that started failing with "-SYSTEM-F-INSFP1POOL, insufficient process dynamic
The help on the error message advise to either reduce the demand for space,
 perhaps by using fewer process logical names, or increase the available space
 by raising the value of the SYSGEN parameter CTLPAGES.
Can you please provide a bit more information on the nature of this error
 message, how does number of logical names and sybols affect this memory region
 and if there is something else other then CTLPAGES that can be done to
 aleviate this problem.
Thanks in advance.
Cheers, Nedo

The Answer is :

  It initially appears that this system and particularly this process has
  too many logical names or symbols, or too little space configured to
  store said structures.  You can attempt to work around this by either
  decreasing the numbers of process logical names or symbols, or you can
  increase the available storage by resetting the system parameter
  CTLPAGES and rebooting.  Since you are apparently unable or unwilling
  to increase the system parameter and reboot at this time, you will be
  left with the former course of action; you must reduce the demands on
  the process storage by reducing the numbers of process logical names
  and symbols within this and other processes reporting INSFP1POOL.
