    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Performance fix in WAS                  *
    *                      7.0.0.15 for Z/OS to cache native       *
    *                      Z/OS user data does not                 *
    *                      work in multi-threaded environment.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When running WAS 7.0.0.15 where multiple WAS requests using same
    user with SyncToThread enabled, S4C6 abends occur. APAR PM25398
    allows multiple threads/TCBs to use the same cached/shared ACEE.
    Therefore more than one thread can end up sharing the same ACEE
    and that will result in times where one thread deletes the USP
    data while another thread is using it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The solution was to remove this performance fix until a more
    comprehensive solution is determined.
    
    APAR PM39296 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 7.0.0.19 of WebSphere Application Server V7.0
    and 8.0.0.1 of WebSphere Application Server V8.0.
