APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The command:
    rmsock Address TypeofAddress
    
    Will produce the error:
    getprocdata: malloc failed
    
    Example:
    rmsock f1000e0002be4bb8 tcpcb
    getprocdata: malloc failed
    

Local fix

  • Reboot the machine.
    

Problem summary

  • rmsock fails with "getprocdata: malloc failed" if number of
    processes running are more than 1907, which causes rmsock to
    malloc for more than 2GB.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code of rmsock has been fixed so that it now requires less
    memory during malloc.
    

Temporary fix
