Runtime Errors : TIME_OUT (The program "CL_SQL_STATEMENT==============CP" has exceeded the maximum permitted runtime)

Former Member

Hi Guys,

On BI Production system I am getting ST22 : ABAP Run time error (TIME_OUT)

The Parameter value of rdisp/max_wprun_time = 3600 (1hr) which is maximum value. Even then we are getting around 20 to 30 Dumps. Can any suggest a Note, so that tell my application team to run their programs in Background.

Thanks in Advance for Reply.

Runtime Errors    TIME_OUT
Date and Time      15.04.2013 14:19:05

Short text

Time limit exceeded.

What happened?

The program "CL_SQL_STATEMENT==============CP" has exceeded the maximum
  permitted runtime without

interruption and has therefore been terminated.

What can you do?

Note down which actions and inputs caused the error.

To process the problem further, contact you SAP system


Using Transaction ST22 for ABAP Dump Analysis, you can look

at and manage termination messages, and you can also

keep them for a long time.

Error analysis

After a specific time, the program is terminated to make the work area

available to other users who may be waiting.

This is to prevent a work area being blocked unnecessarily long by, for


- Endless loops (DO, WHILE, ...),

- Database accesses with a large result set

- Database accesses without a suitable index (full table scan)

The maximum runtime of a program is limited by the system profile

parameter "rdisp/max_wprun_time". The current setting is 3600 seconds. If this

time limit is

exceeded, the system attempts to cancel any running SQL statement or

signals the ABAP processor to stop the running program. Then the system

waits another 60 seconds maximum. If the program is then still active,

the work process is restarted.

How to correct the error

Programs with long runtime should generally be started as background

jobs. If this is not possible, you can increase the system profile

parameter "rdisp/max_wprun_time".

Depending on the cause of the error, you may have to take one of the

following measures:

- Endless loop: Correct program;

- Dataset resulting from database access is too large:
  Instead of "SELECT * ... ENDSELECT", use "SELECT * INTO internal table
  (for example);

- Database has unsuitable index: Check index generation.

If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to

find an interim solution in an SAP Note.

If you have access to SAP Notes, carry out a search with the following


"TIME_OUT" " "

"CL_SQL_STATEMENT==============CP" or "CL_SQL_STATEMENT==============CM004"

hi vijay

here is a note about the rdisp/max_wprun_time parameter

Note 25528 - Parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time

the rule of thumb that we use at clients is any job that runs longer than 10 min has to run in the background, or else if everyone does that it will fill up the DIA processes and then no one can logon or work until they free up or system restart.

also review

Hi Vijay,

We are recently facing the same "TIME_OUT" dump for the same program in ST22. Can you please let me know what exactly you did to fix your issue ?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks & Regards,


P.S. - Can you please let me know how did you reach to the job name and the corrective actions performed.

Hi Mithun,

In ST22 it will tell you which job is causing the error.

double click on the TIMEOUT error and click on USER AND TRANSACTIONS on the left, under PROGRAM : program_name

follow the answer marked as correct

hope it helps

Hi Marius,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I went through the parameter info.

I understand that, in my case, the job which is apparently taking a long time to process in the foreground is being cut short by this "rdisp/max_wprun_time" parameter (and hence, the Time_out dump in ST22) to optimize the usage of the dialog processes and free them up. Considering that the parameter value cant be increased from the present limit, I believe the next fix is to convert this time-consuming program running in the foreground to a background process.

Can you please help me with the corrective actions (meaning Job name or report name etc) which need to be converted from a forground process to a Background process, and the exact way to do so. We are getting the exact same dump as in the heading of this thread.

The ST22 in our SP1 system contains only Time_out dumps (10 per day for that matter) and we're trying to fix it up. Appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

Hi Mithun

Is the job being manually kick off in sa38/se38 ?

if this is the case it's quite easy
