Error description

  • An ABEND0C4 can occur when one TCB is cleaning up a thread and
    frees the WLM PB.  The free of the WLM PB occurs in module
    DFSDASS0+0C2C.  The second TCB is initializing and attempts to
    reference the PB_PARENT_MONTKN out of the previously released
    WLM PB.  This results in the ABEND0C4.
    .
    The ABEND0C4 occurs in module DFSCPY00+155C after label
    INIT4100.

    ****************************************************************
    During cleanup, a TCB frees the WLM PB.  The free occurs in
    DFSDASS0+0C2C.  A second TCB initializes and attempts to
    reference the PB_PARENT_MONTKN out of the previously released
    WLM PB.  This results in an ABEND0C4 in DFSCPY00+155c after
    label INIT4100.
    

Problem conclusion

  • GEN:
    KEYWORDS:
    
    *** END IMS KEYWORDS ***
    The handling of WLM Performance Blocks is changed so
    that they are no longer obtained and released
    on every PSB schedule.
    
    Eliminate calling WLM to obtain and release PBs for every PSB
    schedule.
    
    Obtain a pool of WLM performance blocks during connection
    to IMS processing for DRA environment.
    
    Threads will claim a PB from the pool during signon
    and only release it at signoff or abnormal thread termination.
    
    IMSAUTH  - add WLM_PBPOOL function code x'84'
             New return codes for WLM_PBPOOL:
             RC  - Meaning
             04    Caller is not under the TCB that issued IDENTIFY.
             08    Dependent Region Directory block not located.
             0C    Region IDENTIFY block not found.
             10    Call made from unsupported region type.
             14    Invalid function request.
             20    Create caller not authorized
             24    Second Create PB Pool is not allowed.
             28    Failed to get storage for DFSWLMPP block.
             2C    WLM Get PB blocks failed for CREATE request.
             40    No PB Pool block was located for ADD request.
             44    ADD request not issued from same TCB as CREATE.
             48    Failed to get storage for ADD PBs request.
             4C    WLM Get PB blocks failed for ADD request.
             60    DELETE caller is not authorized.
    DFSV4200 - add WLM_PBPOOL function, CREATE, ADD and DELETE
             CREATE subfunction - Get PB Pool header, DFSWLMPP.
               Obtain initial pool of PBs. The PBCOUNT is equal
               to min + max thread.
             ADD subfunction - Get additional PBCOUNT PBs
             DELETE subfunction - Delete all PBs and related
               PB pool storage
    DFSAERI0, DFSPRA10 - Add MAXTHD to DFSSSOB IDENTIFY call
    DFSDASD0 - Issue IMSAUTH DELETE during Terminte Identify call
               processing.
    DFSDASI0 - Issue IMSAUTH WLM_PBPOOL CREATE during IDENTIFY
               processing.
               Module is converted to use branch relative.
    DFSDASS0 SIGNON - Claim PB from pool during signon processing.
               If no PBs are available, set signon feedback and
               defer PB claim to PSB schedule.
             SIGNOFF - Return pool PBs to the pool for reuse.
    DFSPINI0 - Check signon feedback for PBs needed and enqueue
               request more PBs to DRA control routine DFSPRRA0.
    DFSDASP0 - Claim PB from pool is needed, set schedule feedback
               if more PBs needed. If no PBs are available from the
               pool, issue DFSWLME call to obtain one.
    DFSAERG0 - Check schedule PSB feedback for PBs needed and
               enqueue request to DRA control.
    DFSDAST0 - Delete WLM PB for ODBA if not obtained
               from the pool
    DFSDTTA0 - Reset flag bits in DFSWLMWK.
    DFSAERA0 - Add routine to issue IMSAUTH ADDPB
    DBFDBF00 - Recompile for DFSSSOB changes to CNBA offset
    DFSDPDIR - Add anchor pointer DPPBPOOL for DFSWLMPP block
    DFSPQE   - Add PQE function to request additional PB pool
    DFSSSOB  - Add MAXTHD= parameter for IDENTIFY function.
               Relocated SSPICNBA.
    DFSTRSOB - Updated SSOB byte trace with codes for PB pool
               diagnostic trace codes.
    DFSWLME  - Add PBPOOL request to obtain a pool of PB from WLM
    DFSWLML  - Add PBPOOL support to delete PB by address
    DFSWLMPP - New macro defines the WLM PB pool blocks.
