Error description

  • Certain MODIFY Commands in WebSphere for z/OS will not produce
    output if the Java trace level is set to OFF, or WARNING or
    above (SEVERE, ERROR) for the respective component of the MODIFY
    command.
    
    For example, F <CR>,DISPLAY,ADAPTER,DAEMONRGES does not produce
    output if OLA trace level is set to OFF, WARNING, ERROR or
    SEVERE. If OLA trace level is set to INFO or below (such as ALL,
    FINER, FINEST etc), then output is produced.
    
    Below is an example from Master Console. In this example OLA=all
    produced valid output for DAEMONREGS, but setting TRACEINIT
    produced no output because initial Java trace setting was
    *=info.
    
    F BBOS001,TRACEJAVA='OLA=all'
    BBOO0211I MODIFY COMMAND TRACEJAVA='OLA=all' COMPLETED
    SUCCESSFULLY
    F BBOS001,DISPLAY,ADAPTER,DAEMONRGES

    F BBOS001,DISPLAY,ADAPTER,DAEMONRGES
    BBOO0188I END OF OUTPUT FOR COMMAND DISPLAY,ADAPTER,DAEMONRGES
    
    Another example is: F <CR>,DISPLAY,THREADS. Notice that with
    *=info valid output is produced but with *=warning no output is
    produced.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 and 8.0                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Responses to the MVS operator command   *
    *                      MODIFY DISPLAY,ADAPTER are not          *
    *                      displayed if the Java trace level is    *
    *                      excluding INFO messages.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Responses to the MVS operator command MODIFY DISPLAY,ADAPTER
    and MODIFY DISPLAY,THREADS are issued as INFO messages and are
    subject to the same filtering as other messages issued by
    WebSphere Application Server for z/OS.  Since these messages
    are responses to operator commands, they should be issued
    regardless of the trace filtering.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to display responses to the
    MODIFY DISPLAY,ADAPTER and MODIFY DISPLAY,THREADS commands
    regardless of the Java trace filtering settings.
    
    APAR PM38853 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Service Level 7.0.0.21 and 8.0.0.1 of WebSphere
    Application Server.
