    ****************************************************************
    There is a NullPointerException when collecting persistant
    store related PMI statistics because the messagestore is
    not yet initialized.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Source code has been modified to collect PMI statistics only
    after messagestore initialization.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.39, 8.0.0.11, and 8.5.5.7. Please refer to the
