APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Over a long period of time, the source server may leak memory
    from
    sdrepl.c in SdReplicateBatchStatus, as well as report incorrect
    status from Protect
    Stgpool. Users may also observe server and network activity,
    since Protect Stgpool will continue protecting extents after the
    process end message has been issued.
    
    To identify this memory leak, instrumentation collection on the
    source server will
    show memory allocations growing over time from
    SdReplicateBatchStatus. This APAR should be suspected if the
    source server has unexpectedly large network activity to the
    target server with no Replicate, Protect, or other data transfer
    operations occurring.
