APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A Multi-Protocol Gateway service using a SFTP poller might
    restart or generate an error report with watchdog backtraces.
    This happens when an SFTP server operation is disrupted while
    the appliance is accessing it.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Affected are DataPower configurations using SFTP poller front
    side handlers.
    
    When the SFTP server operation or connectivity is disrupted, the
    pending transfer operation might not clean up properly. This
    might manifest by watchdog backtraces being reported when the
    appliance is restarted later.  Many repeated occurrences of this
    error could also cause the appliance to go out of memory.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
