Error description

  • When loading the Process Admin console, the
    Process Status Summary widget may take a very long time to
    complete loading.  The performance impact occurs when there are
    a large number of process instances.
       In a case where there were 290,000 process instances it took
    10 mins to update the process status count.
    .
    .---------------------------------------------------------
    The reason for this is how the ProcessApps REST call works.
    The Process Status Summary widget makes this REST call

    ****************************************************************
    In order to populate the icons adjacent to the list of Process
    Applications in the Process Instance Status Summary Widget, a
    significant amount of data needs to be retrieved and processed
    from the database. This fix also corrects a problem where the
    process instance counts are slightly inconsistent between the
    main process instance status widget and the Process Inspector
    filter panel.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix provides an optional mechanism to disable the icon,
    thus yielding performance improvements and making the process
    app list in the widget consistent with that in the main
    Process Inspector filter list.A fix for IBM BPM V8.0.0.0 and
    V8.0.1.1 is available on Fix Central:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral. After you select the
    product group, product, installed version, and platform, click
    Continue and then select APAR or SPR, enter JR47837, and click
    Continue. When downloading fix packages, ensure that you also
    download the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file
    for additional installation instructions and information about
    the fix.
