Error description

  • Trace node keeps the file handle opened until the flow get
    stopped and it prevent deletion of the trace node output file
    created by the node while the flow is running. Once the trace
    node is turned off by running mqsichangetrace command, then
    during the processing of the subsequent input message the trace
    node detects that tracing is disabled and then it closes off
    the file handle that it opened.

    USERS AFFECTED:

    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When trace nodes are included in a message flow and they are
    disabled via mqsichangetrace command, the trace node still keeps
    the file handle open until the message flow is stopped . This
    prevents the deletion of the output file created by the trace
    node while the flow is running.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product has been modified such that output file created by
    trace node can be deleted once the trace nodes are turned off
    using mqsichangetrace command.
