APAR NUMBER: PM79220 PRODUCT: z/TPFDF FUNCTIONAL AREA: TPFDF CENTRAL DATABASE ROUTINES SHIPPED IN PUT: 10 ABSTRACT: With APAR PM38645 applied, issuing a DBDEL or dfdel() API on a file that uses 8-byte file address headers and a B+Tree index can leave references to released file addresses, resulting in erroneously available file addresses. PACKAGE CONTENTS: Source Segments: (C) tpfdf/rt/uft6.cpp (C) tpfdf/rt/uftb.cpp Object Only Binaries: None. Configuration Independent Binaries: None. Support Files: None. OTHER BINARIES TO BUILD: YES (C) <sys>/load/UFTH.so (C) <sys>/obj/uft6.o (C) <sys>/obj/uftb.o COMMENTS: A DBDEL macro or dfdel() function call can leave references to released file addresses if all of the following are true: * The file is defined with an 8-byte file address header, and * The file has a B+Tree index associated with it, and * A DBDEL is issued with the ALL option, or dfdel() is issued with the DFDEL_ALL option, and * Keys are active, and * The result of the API is that all LRECs are deleted from the subfile. In this case, the z/TPFDF B+Tree routines attempt to clear the root node reference from the prime data block. However, the variable that points to the header is a 4-byte file address header pointer, so only 4 bytes are cleared at the wrong displacement. As a result, the reference to the root node is not cleared, and it will reference released pool addresses. This can lead to erroneously available addresses being reported when recoup is run.
SOLUTION: Segments uft6.cpp and uftb.cpp have been updated to properly clear the B+Tree node reference from the STD8SBA field of the prime data block. COREQS: NO None. MIGRATION CONSIDERATIONS: NO None. BUILD COMMANDS AND INSTRUCTIONS: YES #maketpf commands for linux maketpf -f UFTH uft6.o uftb.o maketpf UFTH link UPDATED INFORMATION UNITS: NO None.
