Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3
    
    When doing a Remote Search on MVS filters, customer sometimes
    gets good results but sometimes the search hangs with message
    'Searching MVS Files : Waiting for server response'.   However,
    the Remote Search always works well when done directly on the
    PDS inside the MVS Filter.
    The request on the filter itself seems to look at the High Level
    Qualifier of the filter instead of looking at the filter client
    string.

    01.The Remote Search on MVS filters had unnecessary steps which
       tended to write many log lines. So the log file was full and
       the server couldn't return the response.
    02.Open RSE thread and MVSminer thread are in contention in
       writing traces onto standard.out.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The server was fixed to remove the unnecessary steps in the
       Remote Search on MVS filters.
    02.Now, MVSminer is changed so that it should not write any data
       onto standard.out.
