APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Tivoli Storage Manager server can experience a small memory
    leak following an object attribute update driven by the Tivoli
    Storage Manager client/API.  This applies to single failed
    attribute updates for backup and space managed objects.
    
    
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    Utilize the diagnostic SHOW MEM command to monitor for
    continuously growing memory utilization by the application.
    If memory usage continues to only grow over time, then you
    may be experiencing this problem.  Another indicator of this
    problem may be highlighted via the diagnostic SHOW ALLOC
    command, which would show memory consumption growth in the
    (TbAllocRowResult) thread.
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    All 6.3.4.200+ and 7.1.0.000+ Tivoli Storage Manager servers
