Error description

  • After consumer application ends, the system goes into loop of
    of sending makeconnection messages every 3 seconds. It then
    sends a retry Notify message. Adjusting the setting in the
    "Exception destination" section of the destination panel,
    of 'Override messaging engine blocked retry timeout default'
    , 'Blocked retry timeout in milliseconds' and 'Maximum failed
    deliveries per message' has no affect on this behavior.
    WS-RM only uses SIB as a storage mechanism, not the
    Pub-Sub function it provides.

    ****************************************************************
    There is no mechanism to adjust the frequency with which WS-RM
    sends MakeConnection requests and re-transmits application
    messages adversely effecting the ability to performance tune the
    system.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The APAR provides two JVM system properties:
    
    com.ibm.websphere.wsrm.pollingInterval can be set to specify the
    frequency with which MakeConnection requests are made for a
    Sequence.  The value specifies the interval in milliseconds.
    The default behavior when the property is not set is 3000 ms.
    
    com.ibm.websphere.wsrm.retransmissionInterval can be set to
    specify the frequency with which WS-RM re-transmits application
    messages when previous attempts to transmit the message have
    failed.  The value specifies the interval in milliseconds.  The
    default behavior when the property is not set is 15000 ms.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.7 and the fix pack following 8.5.0.2.
