Error description

  • Customer system had 179 DEDBs active with 2K CI size.
    Before PM01071, IMS calculated the size of the primary
    buffer pool extent as the larger of 16 or (# DEDBs/32 ).
    In this case, the result was 16 buffers. The secondary extent
    size in buffers is one half the primary size, so 8 buffers.
    Both are multiples of 4K so this was not a problem.
    PM01071 changed the calculation to divide by 8, not 32, which
    resulted in primary and secondary size in buffers of 22 and
    11, respectively ( since 22 > 16 ).
    11 2K buffers is a problem because it is not a multiple of 4k.
    The base code never checked this but it would have required
    far more DEDBs with 2K CI size ( minimum 544 ) to expose the
    problem.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: ALL IMSFP FPBP64 USERS. *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: ABENDSDC2 due to only pagefixing a *
    * partial page. *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: INSTALL CORRECTIVE SERVICE FOR APAR/PTF *
    ****************************************************************
    When pagefixing a subpool extent, the extent size was '16'x
    (22d). The extent size was set at one half the base section
    size, which set the extent size at 'B'x (11d). As the buffer
    size was '800'x (2,048d), pagefixing 11 2k buffer resulted
    in pageifxing a partial page. This eventually caused a problem
    with Media Manager, resulting in the abend.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    note: The exposure only exists if the base section size for
    200x, 400x & 800x (512d, 1024d and 2048d) will *NOT*
    fill an entire IPAGE 1000x (4096d) when divided by 2
    and the subpool is extended.

Problem conclusion

  • GEN:
    KEYWORDS:

    *** END IMS KEYWORDS ***
    When the extent size is calculated, the size will be rounded up
    so as to fill and entire IPAGE.

    DBFBPNS0:
    When the base section of the subpool is allocated, the extent
    size is calculated and stored into the BPND3 base block.
    The extent size will be rounded up to a full page for 200x,
    400x and 800x buffer sized subpools.
