Database terminates with storage related abends S878-10 and SC78-04.
These abends may occur very soon after database initialisation, or may occur after many days or weeks of operation. Increasing OSDI parameter REGION_MEM_RESERVE has no effect.


A signifcant number of datafiles may have been added to the database recently.
An upgrade of the operating system may have occurred recently.
The problem may also occur even if none of these two conditions is true.
