Error description

  • The Scheduler performs a purge on the endpoint as part of
    the purgeJob processing when reclaiming job numbers. On certain
    conditions, the job is getting purged from the job status table,
    but not from the global jod id assignment table.
    
    When the scheduler attempts to reclaim the job number, it cannot
    find any removable jobs in the job status store, which results
    in the NullPointerException.
    
    In the scheduler joblogs, the following exception will be logged

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of WebSphere Compute Grid         *
    *                  Version 8.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Jobs remain in executing state          *
    *                      indefinitely when job numbers have      *
    *                      wrapped and need to be reclaimed.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The logs show numerous WSWS3713E: Connection refused messages
    when trying to do a purge on the endpoint as part of the
    purgeJob processing when reclaiming job numbers. When this
    occurs, the code was not handling it correctly and the job was
    getting purged from the job status table, but not from the
    global job id assignment table. Therefore, when an attempt
    was made to reclaim the job number, no removable jobs can be
    found in the job status store resulting in a
    NullPointerException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • For jobs in the ended, cancelled or execution failed state,
    the information has already been cleaned up on the endpoint,
    so there is no need to issue the purgeEndpoint call which was
    failing because of the connection error.
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpack 8.0.0.3.
