Error description

  • When the RIT 8.7 home screen is launched and there is no
    Internet connection the warnings from failed Internet look ups
    fill the log file making other problems difficult to find.
    
    Note that this has already been resolved for the log file as
    part of APAR:PI41321 in release 8.7.1.1 but has
    not yet been fixed for the JVM Console.
    
    However a message is still written to the JVM console.  The
    problem is that each time a URL base (e.g. www.ibm.com or
    www.youtube.com) cannot be reached a message is logged.  The JVM
    console should only contain (at max) one such entry per base URL
    so the JVM console does not become filled.
    

Local fix

  • Read around the excessive logging on the JVM console.
