Error description

  • For WebSphere Application Server ND 7.0.0,
    On AIX and all distributed platforms.
    
    
    Analysis of the trace shows that a significant portion of time
    is
    spent in findDomainForResource querying for security domains.
    This time
    grows as the cell grows even if the number of security domains
    is
    unchanged, since the Policy is unqualified, the query will
    search in the
    cell part of the config.

    Per security team there is only one waspolicy so it is not
    necessary to
    leave it unqualified. By changing the findDomainForResource
    method
    
    
       ObjectName[] domains = configService.resolve(session,
    "Policy=:SecurityDomain=");
    
    To
    
       ObjectName[] domains = configService.resolve(session,
    "Policy=default:SecurityDomain=");
    
    There should be a significant performance improvement on very
    large
    topologies
