Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition
    protocol bridge agents.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    A WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition (FTE) protocol bridge agent
    created more connections to a file server than was necessary for
    the transfer to complete.
    
    At the start of the transfer a protocol bridge agent would
    create a connection to a file server that is then used to
    perform the transfer of the file data. It then also created a
    second connection immediately afterwards that was used to obtain
    file information. The protocol bridge agent did not reuse the
    initial connection in this case. After obtaining the required
    file information, the second connection was pooled before being
    closed at the end of the transfer.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition (FTE) protocol bridge
    agent code has been updated so that file server connections are
    shared and reused where possible in order to avoid extra
    connections being made to a file server unnecessarily.
