SYSTEM_CORE_DUMPED - Process terminated by signal 4.

Former Member

Hi All,

I am getting a dump which says: " The current ABAP/4 program had to be terminated because the ABAP/4 processor detected a system error."



Internal notes


The termination occurred in the function "ab_CoreInfo" of the SAP

Basis System, specifically in line 5470 of the module


The internal operation just processed is "MOVE".

Stack trace of 'core'.


Can any one explain and guide why this is coming.

We have many different servers from 3.1i to MySAP and it is coming only in 4.5B.

It doesn't seem a memory issue.

Thanks in advance.

Barjinder Singh.

check your SM21, you must have the number of the error. Check the OSS notes ( ..)

and if you find nothing send a message to SAP.
