Error description

  • There are some scenarios where socket timeout for JAX-RPC/JAX-WS
    Web services clients (for example set via
    com.ibm.websphere.webservices.http.SocketTimeout JVM property)
    might not be honored. These scenarios usually involve heavy
    traffic or performance degradation on the Web Services provider
    with SSL transport enabled between the Web Services client and
    provider.
    .
    This problem was reported on WebSphere Application Server
    V6.1.0.29.
    

Local fix

  • N/A.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server Version    *
    *                  6.1 and 7.0 users                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The SSL Handshake can last longer       *
    *                      than the TCP Channel Connect timeout    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The entire SSL Handshake might exceed the TCP Channel Connect
    timeout because it takes multiple reads or writes and the
    channel uses the default timeout for each operation
    

Problem conclusion

  • The SSL Channel was modified to create a new custom property,
    useStrictSSLConnectTimeout(true/false(default)). This will
    tell the SSL Channel to keep track of how long each read or
    write operation takes to complete. This remaining time will be
    the new timeout for the next operation.This property can be
    set here on the administrative console:
    
    Application Servers > {Server Name} > Web Container Transport
    Chains > {Chain Name} > {SSL Channel Name} > Custom Properties
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 6.1.0.37 and 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the
