Problem conclusion

  • Note: As we update our knowledge centers, the following
    Version 9.0 modifications will be available. To access the
    latest on-line documentation, go to the product library page
    at http://www.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/library and
    select the version and product that is appropriate for your
    WebSphere Application Server environment.
    
    The following Version 9.0 issues will be addressed:
    
    ID: PH07693 and #552 (GHE)
    Problem: One of the PMI counter, PercentUsed,
    for threadPools is is not documented in the knowlege
    enter topic, Thread Pool Counters, and it should be
    documented.
    Resolution: Topic, Thread Pool Counters, is updated to add the
    PMI counter, Percent Used - and reads:
    Name: PercentUsed
    Key: threadPoolModule.percentUsed
    Description: The average percent of the pool that is in use.
    The value is based on the total number of configured threads
    in the ThreadPool and not the current pool size.
    Granularity: Per thread pool
    Type: BoundedRangeStatistic
    Level: All
    Overhead: High
    ID: 10
    
    This update also applies to V855 level of the knowledge center.
    ------
    
    ID: 790532 and #620 (GHE)
    Problem: Topic, Process execution settings, has a description
    of UMASK, which is strict in its description and has raised
    questions about whether other UMASK settings are possible and
    whether they can be successfully used.  The UMASK description
    needs to add some clarification in the description.
    
    Resolution: Topic, Process execution settings, is updated.
    The second paragraph in the UMASK description now reads:
    
    BEST PRACTICES: To support system management functions, the
    deployment manager and application servers need to run with
    the stated UMASK default value (007 for z/OS and 022 for
    UNIX). You can change the default value of UMASK for the
    deployment manager and applications server(027 for
    UNIX), but this change can have unintended consequences for
    stack products, add-ons, non-IBM products, and legacy scripts
    and processes.
    
    This update also applies to V8.5 level of the knowledge center.
