Error description

  • When gathering snap on a VIOS the svCollect portion of
    the
    snap hangs with kdb using 100% of a CPU.
    
    The following will be seen in the vasi0.vasiwq file in
    /tmp/ibmsupport/svCollect.
    
    (0)> vasiwq -n vasi0
    Executing vasiwq command
    VASI DDCTL pointer was NOT loaded
    Use vasiload to load the pointer
    VASI DDCTL pointer was NOT loaded
    Use vasiload to load the pointer
    VASI DDCTL pointer was NOT loaded
    ...
    
    The problem is caused by the vasiwq -n kdb subcommand
    going into an infinite loop so snap does not complete.
    

Local fix

  • A reboot of the VIOS will resolve this.
