APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • There is a bug in the way IBM Traveler is writing certain log
    lines. The problem is that in some cases, the buffer into which
    Traveler attempts to write data is too small for the data
    itself. This causes a buffer over run, which causes IBM Traveler
    to crash.
    
    With this fix Traveler will ensure that a large enough buffer
    is used for the data being logged.
    

Local fix

  • None, but users can reduce the chances of encountering this
    issue by running at the default "Info" log level, which reduces
    the overall amount of logging.
    

Problem summary

  •  IBM Traveler log messages attempt to provide corrective
    actions, which sometimes makes them long.  If too long could
    cause a server crash due to buffer over run.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Traveler logging mechanism has been updated to resolve
    this issue.
