APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Problem Description:
    
    During or after a REPAIR STGPOOL operation, high memory
    utilization may be noted in smrepl.c. This will occur for any
    REPAIR STGPOOL operation, and is dependent on how many extents
    are being repaired.
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    Use SHOW ALLOC output and look for lines similar to these:
    50 entries, using   6425600 bytes, from smrepl.c(14649)
    
    The exact line number may vary. The number of entries is related
    to the number of extents repaired and will be higher for greater
    quantities of extents repaired.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: 7.1.3, 7.1.4 and 7.1.5
    
    Initial Impact: Medium
    
    Additional Keywords: memory leak repair damage
