APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The StagingProp utility operates in 2 stages:
    1) Consolidation
     2) Propagation
    
     The consolidation stage ensures that the content of the STAGLOG
    table which contains information about data to be propagated is
    in consolidated (or optimal) state before the utility moves on
    to the propagation stage.
    
     Previously, if errors were to occur in the Propagation stage
    and subsequent invocation was required (after resolving any
    issues), the utility would re-perform the consolidation stage.
    Re-performing the consolidation stage would have no effect on
    the state of the STAGLOG table since it would already be in a
    consolidated (or optimal state) from the previous invocation.
    
     With this change, the utility performs the consolidation stage
    only if necessary.

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
     WebSphere Commerce user on v7.0 who use the StagingProp utility
    
     PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
     Enhance StagingProp utility to avoid performing unnecessary
    consolidation
    
     BUSINESS IMPACT:
     Large data propagation may be unnecessarily delayed
    
     RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • Introduced marker or indicator record in STAGLOG table to
    provide information about last "observed" record in a
    StagingProp invocation. The StagingProp utility uses this
    indicator record on subsequent invocations to determine whether
    to perform consolidation.
