"Out of locks" not shown in errorlog

Hi all....

I'm working on Sybase 11.9.2.4 on HP-UX.
Now we've had this situation where, in an applicationlog an error 'Out of locks' is shown but when I look in the Sybase-errorlog I do not see this message...

In my understanding the errormessage, with severity 17, should be presented in the errorlog.

Can anyone think of a reason why it isn't?

Here's a few copies from the logs.
The names have changed to protect the innocent :) The message 'disconnection failed' is from an errorfunction in the application which disconnects all connections from that application. The application itself is a serverprocess.

First the applicationlog:

26/03/04 15:09:12: (cv_sqlprt.c:720) sql failed :select <columns> from <tablename>
26/03/04 15:09:12: Error: failed to process 13, <procedurename>
26/03/04 15:09:12: Disconnection failed: Server message:
      number(5701) severity(10) state(2) line(1)
      Changed database context to 'db_namel'.

Server message:
      number(1204) severity(17) state(2) line(1)
      SQL Server has run out of LOCKS.  Re-run your command when there are fewer active users, or contact a user with System Administrator (SA) role to reconfigure SQL Server with more LOCKS.

Client Library error:
      severity(0) number(49) origin(1) layer(1)
      ct_close(): user api layer: external error: This routine cannot be called because another command structure has results pending.
(cv_sbs.c:676) ct_close failed
<next messsage>

Then the Sybase errorlog:

01:00000:00034:2004/03/26 15:08:11.97 kernel  Cannot send, host process disconnected:  00002dac spid: 34
01:00000:00034:2004/03/26 15:08:11.97 server  Error: 1608, Severity: 18, State: 3
01:00000:00034:2004/03/26 15:08:11.97 server  A client process exited abnormally, or a network error was encountered. Unless other errors occurred, continue processing normally.
01:00000:00186:2004/03/26 15:09:27.59 kernel  Cannot send, host process disconnected:  00002104 spid: 186
01:00000:00186:2004/03/26 15:09:27.59 server  Error: 1608, Severity: 18, State: 3
01:00000:00186:2004/03/26 15:09:27.59 server  A client process exited abnormally, or a network error was encountered. Unless other errors occurred, continue processing normally.

You can see at the times that the 1204 message is not in the errolog.

In general, errors that affect only the client process are reported only to the client.  You do sometimes see "out of locks" errors in the errorlog, but it is for cases where the situation was encountered by a system process.

If you would like to have this message reported in the log, you can use the sp_altermessage procedure to add the "with_log" attribute.

Ok, I suppose so.
