Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using the administrative console to  *
    *                  restart application server jvms.            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Not all jvm resources are released      *
    *                      before the jvm appears to be stopped.   *
    *                      The start portion of the restart may    *
    *                      occur before the resources are          *
    *                      released.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Instead of using the console to restart     *
    *                  the servers, stop the servers, wait a       *
    *                  period of time, then start the servers.     *
    ****************************************************************
    JVMs are not release resources before the JVM is started again
    so those resources may not be available to the newly started
    JVM.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The console is now providing a Custom property for the
    deployment manager jvm so that instead of using a restart to
    restart the application server jvms, the console will stop,
    wait a number of milliseconds specified by the custom
    property, then start the server.
    
    com.ibm.websphere.console.server.restart.delay  10000
    
    The default if the property is set with an invalid value is
    10000 milliseconds.  If a valid integer is provided, that
    value is used.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.15, 9.0.0.11.  Please refer to the Recommended
