APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Large .pt issue occur whenever the parser process a raw file
    that contained junk data. Hence, it cause the parser to process
    data repeatedly and produced a very large .pt which then lead
    to the spool to be full.
    Eventhough its relates to raw data issue, our customer believe
    that  our parser should able to cope with it by logging the
    incorrect data instead of processing it repeatedly.
    
    The version of gw perl 3.5.1.
    

Local fix

  • Not known
    

Problem summary

  • Alcatel BSS VG does not includes error handling feature to
    detect and handle such junk data, hence it causes the parser to
    enter into endless loop mode.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Alcatel BSS VG to be enhanced to detect possible junk data by
    observing correctness of the alcatel bss raw's meta-data such as
    block length, block type and record sequence number. In case, an
    error detected, the parser should gracefully logs error message
    and discard the raw in favour of processing other raw files.
    
    This is subject to change at the discretion of IBM.
    

Temporary fix

  • An E-Fix has been provided to the customer/L2 on 4th Jun.
