    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    There is no timeout on the URLReturnCodeMetric health policy,
    thus any connection it makes will block until the endpoint it is
    targeting returns or fails.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An optional timeout parameter was added to the
    URLReturnCodeMetric health policy to allow the user to specify
    how long the health policy should wait before automatically
    ending regardless of the status of the target.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 9.0.0.11.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
