IT09552: ARCHIVE MODE LOG TARGET MAY CONSUME TEMPORARY SPACE IF REMOTE SERVER IS DOWN

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If Log Target with Archive Mode Upload cannot reach its remote
    target it will continue to Log files to be sent. Currently the
    Log Target will only mark the oldest file as '.unsent' without
    cycling through any other files, if any. This may cause, over
    time a buildup of Log Files associated with this target until
    the Remote Target is brought back up.
    

Local fix

  • Disable Log Targets that cannot reach their configured remote
    target. No functionality is lost when disabling the object when
    the remote target is down because the Log Targets cannot upload
    any data.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is the use of Log Target with archive mode upload.
    
    The fix will ensure that even if the upload of the file has
    failed the file will be renamed to '.unsent'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • There can be loss of log data if the remote server is down for
    an extended period of time. The fix will prevent the ramdisk
    from becoming full.
    
    The fix is available in 6.0.0.16, 6.0.1.12, 7.0.0.9, 7.1.0.6 and
     7.2.0.2.
