Error description

  • Problem summary:
    The HourGlass AGGELIG module references a data table, located in
    the top of the AGGFRONT module, that contains pointers to
    various data items used by several HourGlass modules.  In the
    reported case, processing for a time request abended because the
    pointer to the AGGFRONT module was no longer valid because
    HourGlass was in the process of terminating.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Under unusual circumstances, turning    *
    *                      off HG, such as with AGGOFF, can        *
    *                      cause a later S0C4 ABEND in AGGELIG.    *

Problem conclusion

  • ***************************************************************
    * FIX DESCRIPTION:     Logic in AGGELIG acquires a pointer    *
    *                      from the SVC vector entry 11, which it *
    *                      previously did not check to insure that*
    *                      the pointer pointed to AGGFRONT data.  *
    *                      The logic was changed to insure this.  *
