PM99453: clearmake check for local host is faulty

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Rational Clearmake uses a simple string compare to check if the
    build that has just completed is local or remote (a
    not-domain-extended short hostname).  The abe process uses
    gethostname to get a domain-extended hostname.  So this check
    always fails and the cache is always invalidated on a local
    parallel build with associated performance penalty. ᄊ
