IZ78404: MESSAGES WRITTEN TO SYSLOG WHEN -XLOG:NONE ENABLED
Closed as program error.
Error Message: -Xlog:none is supposed to stop messages being written to the syslog however, on Java 6 SR8 (and earlier SRs), messages are written to syslog with -Xlog:none enabled. . This issue can be reproduced by running the following java command, which shows dump messages generated with the JVM stops: $ ./java -Xdump:java:events=vmstop -Xlog:none -version java version "1.6.0" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pap6460sr8-20100409_01(SR8)) IBM J9 VM (build 2.4, JRE 1.6.0 IBM J9 2.4 AIX ppc64-64 jvmap6460sr8-20100401_55940 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled) J9VM - 20100401_055940 JIT - r9_20100401_15339 GC - 20100308_AA) JCL - 20100408_01 JVMDUMP006I Processing dump event "vmstop", detail "#0000000000000000" - please wait.

Then check the system log to see the JVMDUMP032I message wrongly printed there too. . Stack Trace: N/A . N/A
The problem is caused when the JVM writes a message to the syslog, despite -Xlog:none being specified.
The JVM has been updated to respect the -Xlog:none option, and not write message to the syslog when it is specified. . This defect will be fixed in: 6.0.0 SR9
