    When doing application installations on the AdminAgent it will
    eventually show Out of Memory exceptions.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The application validation code did not clean up the
    archivexxx workspaces when they were no longer used and this
    caused the OutOfMemory error after many appplications were
    installed in the subsystem application server (via admin
    agent). Code has been changed so that the workspaces are now
    properly cleaned up.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.33, 8.0.0.9 and 8.5.5.3.  Please refer to
