APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Disk Watcher consumes excessive temporary storage.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE70419 :
-----------------------------
Disk Watcher was allocating storage for use in tabulating disk
statistics, but it was not freeing it.   This has been fixed by
freeing the storage at the end of each loop iteration, after it
is no longer needed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE70419 :
--------------------------------
None.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI56352 :
=================================================

If file QAPYDWTRC already exists in the library specified on the LIB
parameter of STRDW and previously collected data in file QAPYDWTRC in
that library is no longer needed, then delete file QAPYDWTRC from that
library prior to running STRDW.

If file QAPYDWTRC already exists in the library specified on the LIB
parameter of STRDW and previously collected data from file QAPYDWTRC in
that library is still needed, then there are two options:
1) Change the library specified on the LIB parameter of STRDW to one in
which the file QAPYDWTRC does not already exist.
2) Convert the old format of file QAPYDWTRC to the new version by doing
the following steps:
- RNMOBJ OBJ(TOLIB/QAPYDWTRC) OBJTYPE(*FILE) NEWOBJ(QAPYDWTRC1)
- CRTDUPOBJ OBJ(QAPYDWTRC) FROMLIB(QSYS) OBJTYPE(*FILE) TOLIB(TOLIB)
- CPYF FROMFILE(TOLIB/QAPYDWTRC1) TOFILE(TOLIB/QAPYDWTRC)
FROMMBR(*ALL) TOMBR(*FROMMBR) MBROPT(*REPLACE) FMTOPT(*MAP)
