Error description

  • EDIFACT Deenvelope Service can't handle incorrect input file
    and gets stuck in Active state, causing OOM and  Sterling B2B
    Integrator to
    crash. Looks like the EDIFACT Deenvelope service was unable to
    handle the incorrect input file (irregular EDI file that
    has UNH between UNT and UNZ).
    If you run more than one instance of EDIDeenvelope BP, those BPs
    will stay in 'Active" state and exhaust the free memory,
    which at some point leads to the system hanging, an OOM
    error and crash.
