Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server administrative console.              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An increasing amount of memory is used  *
    *                      when a user repeatedly logs in and out  *
    *                      of the adminstrative console.           *
    ****************************************************************

    ****************************************************************
    The ValidationManagerRegistry code stores a hash table linking
    users workspaces to ValidationManager objects. When a user
    logs out, the ValidationManagerRegistry is not notified. When
    the user logs back in a new workspace is created. The
    administratrive console passes the new workspace to the
    ValidationManagerRegistry when requesting a ValidationManager.
    The ValidationManagerRegistry, not finding the new workspace
    in the hash table, creates a new ValidationManager. The
    previous ValidationManager which is associated with the
    previous workspace remains in the hash table.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The ValidationManagerRegistry code is updated to release the
    previous ValidationManager when a new workspace is received
    for the same user.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.47, 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.6, and the fix pack
    following 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended
