APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Messages that are normally written to the system log receive a
    time of occurrance timestamp by virtue of where they are
    written. It is however possible to route these messages
    elsewhere via the ras_default_msg_dd environment variable,
    where no time of occurance timestamp is provided.

    *                      messages do not have a timestamp.       *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Messages that are rerouted using ras_default_msg_dd or
    ras_hardcopy_msg_dd do not get a time of occurrence timestamp.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changed the code to add a timestamp to ras_default_msg_dd
    and ras_hardcopy_msg_dd rerouted messages when requested.
    
    To have a timestamp added to ras_default_msg_dd routed
    messages set ras_default_msg_dd_enable_timestamps to 1.
    To have a timestamp added to ras_hardcopy_msg_dd routed
    messages set ras_hardcopy_msg_dd_enable_timestamps to 1.
    The default for ras_default_msg_dd_enable_timestamps and
    ras_hardcopy_msg_dd_enable_timestamps is 0. When set
    to 0 timestamps will not be written.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.10.  Please refer to the Recommended
