Is it possible to have two procedures running in parallel? I want to call a (B) stored procedure from within a (A) procedure without having (A) to wait until (B) finishes, so that (A) & (B) will be executed in parallel. In the manuals of Sybase there are topics only related to replication server.

You can use events to run things "in parallel" as events run on their own connection. So your procedure A could use "trigger event MyProcBEvent(some params)" to start procB asynchronously. This forum has several FAQs dealing with events, see e.g. here. Note, that this means they run as two different transactions, that may or may not fit your requirements.

Apparently, you would then code your event that is calls the according procedure and can use event parameters to supply needed information.

The example from Mark has helped to get what I need, interesting was the way of passing parameters to the event.

One more question please, how can I grant the permission of 'trigger event' to a normal user? Now is only DBA permitted, but my user is not!

Actually I still have a problem because ProcA & ProcB are modifying the same table, so that I get sometimes an error stating that the table is locked from the other Procedure!! Any ideas hints for this case?

You must be the owner of the event, or have the MANAGE ANY EVENT system privilege.

However, if the event i triggered from a procedure with default SQL SECURITY DEFINER, I would assume (but do not know) that the event must be "triggerable" by the procedure's owner, not by the caller.

Well, now you have two transactions modifying the same table, so the usual isolation level and locking schemes apply...Writers always block other writers on the same row(s) but for reading you may adapt the isolation level - or use mutexes/semaphores to synchronize parts of the execution.

> an error stating that the table is locked from the other Procedure!

Exactly what is the error?

If it is SQLCODE -210 then try setting the blocking option to 'ON' and the blocking_timeout to '0' so a blocked connection will wait until the blocking connection releases the locks. Those are the default option settings, and it is a bad idea to change defaults if you don't understand what the options are for.

Also, make sure you do a COMMIT when you're done.

How can I be the owner of the EVENT? Unlike creating procedures, There is no possibility to nominate the owner during creating a new event (The Syntax is: CREATE EVENT event-name ....), whereas the syntax of creating procedures is (CREATE PROCEDURE [owner.]procedure-name....)

(19 Mar '19, 12:14) Baron

Moreover, when I user SETUSER myuser, and then try to create the event, then I get an error (Permission denied: you dont have permisstion to use the CREATE EVENT Statement)

(19 Mar '19, 12:23) Baron

Ah, alright, I had used the v16 and v17 docs but the newest v17 DCX comment explains that

CREATE [ OR REPLACE ] EVENT [user-name.]event-name...

An owner can be specified but is ignored; events do not have owners. ... Because events do not have owners, no two events can have the same name.

But then the other option (the system privilege) should work:)

The default value for blocking_timeout in my SQL-10 DB is 20000

(22 Mar '19, 08:11) Baron

How can grant the MANAGE ANY EVENT privilege to my user? grant MANAGE_ANY_EVENT to USER1;?

(22 Mar '19, 08:15) Baron

Oops, it is very helpful to tell beforehand that you are using a real old SQL Anywhere version - v10 has been EOL'ed early 2012...

The mentioned MANAGE ANY EVENT system privilege has been introduced with v16, I guess with older versions, you would need to wrap the trigger event call in a procedure/function, and grant execute on that procedure/function to the desired users.

Nevertheless, the default blocking_timeout value for 10.0.1 (and AFAIK, all versions) is 0, see here...

(22 Mar '19, 10:16) Volker Barth

> 20000

Which is 20 seconds... any connection waiting longer than 20 seconds after being blocked will get an exception (and most likely fail).

...which means that no locks should be held longer than 20 seconds if you don't want other connections to fail.

Is that what you want? failed operations rather than waiting longer than 20 seconds?

The default is 0 which is "wait forever"... and almost everyone accepts that.

(22 Mar '19, 13:11) Breck Carter

The mentioned wrapping (if I get it correct) does not work, I am already triggering the event from within a procedure_A.

CREATE PROCEDURE "usr1"."procedure_A"



trigger event ...


GRANT EXECUTE ON "usr1"."procedure_A" TO "usr1";

And then I am connected to DB with dba user (or with usr1) and call the procedure_A but I get the error that I dont have the right for triggering event. The only solution is that I declare the procedure as "dba"."procedure_A" and be connected as dba.

(22 Mar '19, 18:08) Baron

Hm, I had expected that the procedure's owner is dba, and you grant execute on that proc to usr1...

(22 Mar '19, 18:28) Volker Barth

Thanks for the explanation, in my case I should then choose the 0, because the transaction contained in the event must be executed 'anywhen'. Delaying the execution of this transaction is not a big problem.

The DB is several years old, and not initiated by me, I am only afraid if change the value to 0 will have any side effects on already existing functions/triggers.

(22 Mar '19, 19:06) Baron

Thanks for the hint, I created the wrapper procedure in the name of dba, and then granted execution on this procedure to my user, then everything works fine :)

(26 Mar '19, 19:18) Baron

One more question please, Is there any means to stop the triggered event? I mean in the above block we have used 'trigger event', and actually within this event I have built a wait process then execute further statements, but upon some circumstances I will need to break the wait process of the event.

So, something like 'kill event' or 'terminate event'

(11 Apr '19, 04:17) Baron

I guess you have to drop the event connection.

(11 Apr '19, 04:35) Volker Barth

You manually DROP CONNECTION in dbisql if you can find the connection number. I think you can also do that Sybase Central and other Clickety-Clack-GUI-Things... the trick, of course, is choosing the connection (don't wanna make a misteak and drop the CEO's golf app :)

The approach used inside Foxhound is to have the EVENT record its own @@SPID (connection number) in a table. When some other piece of code wants to drop that event, it SELECTs that connection number and then does a DROP CONNECTION.

Depending on what the EVENT is doing, the DROP CONNECTION may not take effect immediately... especially if it has to roll back gigabytes of uncommitted changes.

(11 Apr '19, 13:36) Breck Carter

Actually it was a relative big challenge to know (from inside the caller procedure) which connection ID has been assigned to the Event (being triggered from within the procedure). I tried the CREATE VARIABLE inside the procedure, and then from within the EVENT assign the connection ID to this variable -> (without success).

So it looks so that there no any other choice rather than passing the connection ID over a table (Event writes the connection ID in a table, and then the procedure reads from that table)

Thank you for the support.

(12 Apr '19, 12:24) Baron

I tried the CREATE VARIABLE inside the procedure, and then from within the EVENT assign the connection ID to this variable -> (without success).

Yes, that cannot work because variables are connection-specific.

However, there are more options:

  • Of course, with v17, you can use database-scope variables and use those to share such information...

  • And you could also use the MESSAGE ... FOR CONNECTION statement / WAITFOR...AFTER MESSAGE BREAK method to communcate between different connections. That way the event could "tell" its connection number back to the waiting calling procedure. The docs have a very simple sample on that.

(12 Apr '19, 13:20) Volker Barth

Aside: That complex topic has been discussed (among others) here and here in this forum before, and would surely be worth to be be discussed again outside those very nested comments:)

There are some implicit forms of parallel execution within code running on a single connection (e.g., intra-query parallelism ), but you cannot explicitly execute code in parallel within a single connection.

As Volker indicates, you can use CREATE EVENT and TRIGGER EVENT to execute procedure (event) code in parallel by running "subtasks" on separate connections.

Foxhound does this during database startup, and it makes use of ISOLATION LEVEL 0 and a table to determine when the subtasks are complete; SQL Anywhere 17 offers semaphores and mutexes, but the following code was written for SQL Anywhere 16...

CREATE TABLE rroad_subtask_progress (
   task_connection_number      BIGINT NOT NULL,
   subtask_number              INTEGER NOT NULL, -- 0 for main task, 1, 2, 3, ... for subtasks
   subtask_connection_number   BIGINT NOT NULL,
   subtask_started_at          TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT '1900-01-01', -- for diagnostic purposes only
   subtask_finished_at         TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT '1900-01-01', -- for diagnostic purposes only
   subtask_duration_msec       BIGINT NOT NULL COMPUTE (
                                  IF subtask_started_at >= subtask_finished_at 
                                     THEN 0
                                     ELSE DATEDIFF ( MILLISECOND, subtask_started_at, subtask_finished_at )
                                  END IF ),
   PRIMARY KEY ( task_connection_number, subtask_number ) );

-- Launch the subtasks.

TRIGGER EVENT rroad_startup_subtask1;
TRIGGER EVENT rroad_startup_subtask2;
TRIGGER EVENT rroad_startup_subtask3;

-- Wait for all the subtasks to start.

                 FROM rroad_subtask_progress
                WHERE task_connection_number    = CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'Number' )
                  AND subtask_number            > 0
                  AND subtask_connection_number = 0 ) LOOP

   -- Note: WAITFOR causes the worker to block while waiting, reducing the number of workers in the worker pool.

   WAITFOR DELAY '00:00:00.1';


-- Wait for all the subtasks to finish.

                 FROM rroad_subtask_progress
                WHERE task_connection_number    = CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'Number' )
                  AND subtask_number            > 0
                  AND subtask_connection_number <> 0 ) LOOP

   -- Note: WAITFOR causes the worker to block while waiting, reducing the number of workers in the worker pool.

   WAITFOR DELAY '00:00:00.1';

   -- Update any of the subtasks that have finished.

   UPDATE rroad_subtask_progress
      SET subtask_connection_number = 0
    WHERE task_connection_number    = CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'Number' )
      AND subtask_number            > 0
      AND subtask_connection_number <> 0
      AND CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'Number', subtask_connection_number ) IS NULL;



-- Record the finished timestamp for the main task.

UPDATE rroad_subtask_progress
   SET subtask_finished_at = CURRENT TIMESTAMP
 WHERE task_connection_number = CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'Number' )
   AND subtask_number         = 0;

It is very wise to NOT change any options or settings that you do not understand.
