Today I have some news about the latest APARs we released.
- Linux Fast Path runs out of buffers due to a buffer leak
z/VSE 6.1 APAR DY47658 (PTF UD54173-61C)
z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47657 (PTF UD54172-52C)
z/VSE 5.1 APAR DY47656 (PTF UD54171-51C)
Error description: When using Linux Fast Path (LFP) the LFP instance may run out of buffers quickly. Due to a buffer leak that happens under rare circumstances, LFP buffers may get lost, and thus are no longer available. When no more buffers are available LFP will try to allocate additional buffers up to the configured maximum size. When the maximum size is reached, or no more system GETVIS is available, then applications that are working with that LFP instance may encounter failing socket calls due to no more buffers available.
- REMOVE READ PARAMETER FROM ADD STATEMENT IN IPL
z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47655 (PTF UD54175)
Error description: Remove READ parameter in IPL statement ADD.

You will / can see these APARs on z/VSE's service & support web page too, or use the support portal.
Just a reminder: z/VSE 5.1 service will end soon - June 30, 2016. Please upgrade to a supported z/VSE release - z/VSE 5.2 or z/VSE 6.1, if you want to stay in a supported environment. If you can't make that date, you may contact us.
