APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If there are two or more -XDump options set where
    -Xdump:system:events
    is the same for these options, then only the 2nd option is
    propagated to *.jvm.options file.
    
    Ex. if you have the following specified in  genericJVMArguments
    using admin console:
    
    -Xdump:heap:none
    -Xdump:system:events=throw,filter=jack
    -Xdump:system:events=throw,filter=jill
    
    What ends up in the *.jvm.options file is:
    -Xdump:heap:none
    -Xdump:system:events=throw,filter=jill
    
    The 2nd setting is overwritten by the 3rd because the code
    considers this setting a duplicate.

    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V6.1.0 and V8.0.                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: On z/OS only, unable to set multiple    *
    *                      -Xdump:system:events options for debug  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The z/OS transformer code was keeping only the last similar
    option.
    If there are two or more -Xdump options set where
    -Xdump:system:events is the same for these options, then only
    the last option is
    propagated to *.jvm.options file.
    If you have the following specified in  genericJVMArguments
    using admin console:
    -Xdump:heap:none
    -Xdump:system:events=throw,filter=jack
    -Xdump:system:events=throw,filter=jill
    What ends up in the *.jvm.options file is:
    -Xdump:heap:none
    -Xdump:system:events=throw,filter=jill
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been modified to correctly handle multiple -Xdump
    options.
