    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V6.1.0                               *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: anonymous* subdirectories left in       *
    *                      wstemp directory on Z/OS                *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The z/OS specific platform cluster/server helper
    implementation does not clean up its workspace. That results in
    the unwanted anonymous* subdirectories in wstemp directory on
    z/OS.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent memory and diskspace leaking, implemented the clean
    up code that removes a workspace once it is no longer needed.
    
    APAR PM32551 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.39 of WebSphere Application Server V6.1.
