User logon Error "FATAL", "(57014)", "canceling statement due to statement timeout" seen in Pivotal Greenplum


  • Pivotal Greenplum (GPDB) 4.3.x
  • OS RHEL 6.x


Users are unable to log on to the database other than when using local host. When using external clients, all users, superuser or nonsuperuser, fail to log on. 

When users try to log on via external clients, it hangs for some time and errors out with the following errors in the master logs:

All logon from outside clients was logged out irrespective of whether it was a superuser or nonsuperuser. There were no changes to the customer configuration.

The following was done to troubleshoot the issue:

  • Increased the log_min_messages to DEBUG1 from ERROR to login more details:
[gpadmin@mdw pg_log]$ gpconfig -s log_min_messages
Values on all segments are consistent
GUC          : log_min_messages
Master  value: DEBUG1
Segment value: DEBUG1
  • The master log logged in more details, as that master tried to acquire a session and hit the timeout :

  • strace all indicated that master was waiting on a response from an IP and hit the timeout. The IP pointed to customers ldap server:

[root@mdw ~]# strace -p 53213

Process 53213 attached - interrupt to quit

connect(5, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(389), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16) = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted)

--- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---

select(3, NULL, [2], NULL, {1, 0})      = 1 (out [2], left {0, 999996})

write(2, "\0\0\0\0\304\0\0\0\335\317\0\0 G\35\236 G\35\236\0\0\0\0tcf\0\0\2\0\0"..., 244) = 244

Hence the customer was requested to check their LDAP server which was apparently hung. Once customer rebooted the LDAP server, connections completed successfully.
