Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM BPM Advanced, Standard, and Express     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The Process Center artifact-indexing    *
    *                      function leaves files open.             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    By default the Process Center artifact-indexing function
    checks every 60 seconds whether changes were made to the
    repository and, if so, updates the Lucene index with the
    changes. When the Lucene index is changed, a new Lucene index
    reader must be created so that artifact searches return the
    most up-to-date results. However, the code that creates the
    new index reader does not close the previous index reader,
    resulting in an accumulation of open files.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that causes the artifact-indexing function
    to close previous Lucene index readers when updates to the
    repository are detected.

    When downloading fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
    

Temporary fix

  • Yes, You can turn artifact indexing off. See Configuring the
    Process Center index info center doc
    (http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v8r0m1/topic/com.ibm
