When run a dump database, I got following error in the log:
Feb 10 02:28:30 2009: A25: SYBMULTBUF ERROR: In basis_get_membufs,
failed to create shared memory segment for I/O buffers. shmget call
failed with system erro
r=Invalid argument
Feb 10 02:28:30 2009: Backup Server: 4.139.2.82: [23] The 'shmget'
call failed for device 'compress::5::/xxx::20' with error number 22
(Invalid argument). Refer to your operating system documentation for
further details. Look for 'Feb 10 02:28:30 2009: A20:
SYBMULTBUF ERROR: ' in the backup server errorlog for additional
information from SYBMULTBUF.

Any advice?

It looks like your device has an extra argument of ::20... What is that?

The device should be "compress::1::/filenamehere"

Hi all,

Thanks for your attention.
We have identified the reason. It is caused by insufficient memory.
There is no problem with the script since we used the same script for
a long time and they all succeed.

Hi,

it still sounds like a resource issue to me. How much memory is on the
box? What is shmmax set to? Also make sure you have space available in
/tmp.

The 'shmget' call failed for device
That means one, and only one, thing to me: a call to "get shared
memory" failed. You either have the memory for BS set too high (reduce
it a little), or you have actually run out of memory (and you need to
get some more or reduce all the memory hogs a little). Someone has
changed the memory allocation of programs that grab memory on the box,
and failed to inform you.

With the financial meltdown, consolidating many databases into one ASE
server and managing mixed load is a demand. Ask people who have been
doing it for years.

Thanks all. The issue is caused by memory insufficiency.
We addressed the issue by adding more memory to the server.
