    * USERS AFFECTED: All V11 IMS DBRC API users will be affected. *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: DBRC API does not free the DSPESTAE     *
    *                      storage after DBRC API STOPDBRC         *
    *                      command gets called.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: INSTALL CORRECTIVE SERVICE FOR APAR/PTF      *
    ****************************************************************
    DBRC API does not free the DSPESTAE storage and every STARTDBRC
    command is being executed will allocate new DSPESTAE storage
    block. This leads to a memory leakage.
    
    As for the solution to this problem, we need to free the
    DSPESTAE storage when STOPDBRC command gets called.
    

Problem conclusion

  • GEN:
    KEYWORDS:

    The following module being changed:
    
    DSPAPI00 - This fix frees the DSPESTAE storage when STOPDBRC
