PI51967: SCHEDULING A TEST ON RTCP USES LARGE AMOUNTS OF MEMORY

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you schedule a test you need many more times the project
    size allocated in Library Manager.
    A 512MB project multiplies several times and causes RIT to fail.
    Are unnecessary copies of the project and ZIP being held onto?
    
    RTCP also needs a large amount of memory to deal with this, is
    it just 1x or 2x?
    

Local fix

  • Ensure sufficient memory is available.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of IBM Rational Integration Tester (RIT) and IBM   *
    * Rational Test Control Panel (RTCP) who are publishing stubs  *
    * or scheduling tests from very large projects.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Publishing stubs and scheduling tests from very large        *
    * projects can fail and cause RIT to run out of memory.        *
    * A complete image copy of the project was generated in memory *
    * to send to RTCP.                                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to IBM Rational Integration Tester version 9.0.      *
    ****************************************************************
    Reduce the size of large projects if possible.  Try not to
    include files that are not essential to running such as
    documentation or saved messages from Recording Studio.
    Allocate more memory in Library Manager and re-start RIT.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Memory handling has been greatly improved in version 9.0 of IBM
    Rational Integration Tester.
