Error description

  • The IBM MQ agent process amqzlaa0 ended with memory exception
    when generating activity trace.
    The FDC generated is likely to show the MQGETM call failing with
    MQRC_TRUNCATED_MSG_FAILED,
    followed by a SIGSEGV in the
    zsqAddByteStringATParameter/zsqATCallbackAfter/memcpy function.

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using asynchronous consume with activity trace enabled.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    This problem occurred because IBM MQ was trying to dereference a
    NULL pointer when generating activity trace in the
    MQGET(asynchronous consume) call.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ code has been modified to prevent MQ accessing the NULL
    pointer.
