%SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO and open procedure (LIBRTL)

I have a application written in fortran. Until yesterday it worked fine.
Today I got the following error message:
%SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO, access violation, reason mask=00, virtual address=0000000000001F53, PC=FFFFFFFF808392D4, PS=0000001B

The same message occurs every time I want to call open procedure (opening file) after a while (first few (100 or so) works fine, but then i get this message)). Any ideas?

Re: %SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO and open procedure (LIBRTL)


welcome to the OpenVMS ITRC forum.

An access violation is caused, because the LIBRTL code tried to access an invalid address: 00001F53 - this address cannot be read.

The code in LIBRTL is most likely o.k., it's just some parameter being passed to this call, which provides this invalid address.

Do you check the return status in your open-file routine ? Do you close the files again ?

Using $ SET PROC/DUMP, you can force a process dump to be written, if this error occurs. You can then analyze the process dump with ANAL/PROC.

Or you can run your program under debugger control (RUN/DEBUG) and try to trace back the bad parameter value, when the error happens.

Dobrodošel na OpenVMS ITRC forumu.

As Volker has already said:

>> Do you close the files again ?

If the message occurs when you open a file, maybe you reached the open file quota. Which is 100 by default. Check the limit in UAF or with SHOW PROCESS/QUOTA. You can also monitor the changes of the quota from another terminal when the program is running repeating SHOW PROCESS/QUOTA/ID=. Where is the process id.

Also check what exactly is doing your program PRICE_MANY at line 862.

Re: %SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO and open procedure (LIBRTL)


Without your exact OpenVMS version (or even Architecture!), it's difficult to say for sure, but offset 0B2D4 in LIBRTL on Alpha is probably part of LIB$VM_MALLOC, so best guess is your program is leaking virtual memory and eventually hitting a quota or other limit (a theory which also fits your observation).

Try adding a call to LIB$SHOW_VM just before line 862 in PRICE_MANY. Just:


This will output a summary of VM allocations at the time. Are they growing? As well as open file limits, Fortran also has LUN limits. Make sure you're not exceeding them.

If this doesn't help, please post the statement on line 862, (OPEN statement?) along with the values of any variables used in the statement.
