Error description

  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Maintenance job may run much slower
    than expected which spends most of time on identifying and
    deleting multiple catalog sessions. No particular errors are
    observed except the very long "Duration" seen from SPP GUI when
    the job is either "Running" or "Completed".

Problem conclusion

  • The maintenance job logic has been changed so that unnecessary
    job sessions are not processed during run time, such as sessions
    which have already been processed or are in a status that
    requires no processing. This allows the maintenance job to run
    much more quickly in large environments with lots of job
    sessions.
