AWSBIN080E Error browsing joblogs

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Trying to view a joblog through TDWC a GJS0085E popup message is generated.

Symptom

The message contains the following text :-


"The job output cannot be loaded. Reason: AWSJSY404E The Symphony plan operation "readFromScribner" could not be completed because an error has occurred while accessing the Symphony plan. The error message is: "AWSBIN080E An internal error occurred processing scribner packets.".



Diagnosing the problem

SystemOut.log contains the following error :-

[22/01/13 15:57:38:635 GMT] 00004928 ConnException E AWSJSY404E The Symphony plan operation "readFromScribner" could not be completed because an error has occurred while accessing the Symphony plan. The error message is: "AWSBIN080E An internal error occurred processing
scribner packets.".


Resolving the problem

The issue could be related to the ulimit settings regarding the opened file descriptors ('nofiles'). You can verify its value by running the ulimit -a command. If its value is less then 10000, you need to change it, according to what is described in the websphere documentation at the attached link, by setting it  to 10000.                        
                                                                        
AIX file descriptors (ulimit)

  • Description: Specifies the various restrictions on resource usage on the user account. The ulimit -a command displays all the ulimit limits. The ulimit -a command specifies only the number of open files that are permitted. The default number of open files setting (2000) is typically sufficient for most applications. If the value set for this parameter is too low, errors might occur when opening files or establishing connections. Because this value limits the number of file descriptors that a server process might open, a value that is too low prevents optimum performance.
  • How to view or set: Perform the following steps to change the open file limit to 10,000 files: Open the command window.
1. Edit the /etc/security/limits file. Add the following lines to the user account that the WebSphere Application Server process runs on:
nofiles = 10000
nofiles_hard = 10000
2. Save the changes.
3. Restart your AIX system.
4. To verify the result, type the ulimit -a command on the command line. For example, type # ulimit -a.
  • Default value: For the AIX operating system, the default setting is 2000.
  • Recommended value: The value is application dependent and applies exclusively to application program data and the application stack.
Increasing the ulimit file descriptor limits might improve performance. Increasing some of the other limits might be needed depending on your application. Any changes to the data or stack ulimits should ensure that data+stack < 256MB (for 32-bit WebSphere Application Server only).

It is recommended that you change the ulimit for data to "unlimited".
