  • Customer reports CSA shortage while running WebSphere
    Application Server z/OS 9.0.0.9
    
    Symptoms in SYSLOG show:
    
    *IRA101E CRITICAL SQA SHORTAGE
    BBOO0335E BPX1LDX LOAD OF bbodpcrt FAILED RC=84, REASON=BDF0624.
    
    
    Review of an SVC dump taken at the time of the failure will show
    that there are many getmains for BBODASRT data structures.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WebSphere Application Server for z/OS   *
    *                      Daemon allocated unnecessary common     *
    *                      storage for system down ENF.            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Each Daemon listens for ENF signals to manage its routing to
    servers contained within the cell that it belongs.
    A cell can have members across a plex.  When a system is
    taken offline an ENF 35 signal is sent to each Daemon in the
    plex. The action for this ENF is to clean up control structures
    for any member of the cell that was running on that system.
    In cases where the ENF 35 represented a system which did not
    have any members in the current cell, the ENF exit allocates
    common storage as if a member were to be added for that
    system. This data structure has an eyecatcher of "BBODASRT"
    and a structure size of x'00015408'.
    When there are a large number of daemons in the
    configuration, this can lead to a shortage of common storage
    when a system is removed from the sysplex.  The storage is not
    necessary, since that system did not contain any members in
    the cell.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been modified in the processing of a system down ENF
    to not create the BBODASRT structure.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.17 and 9.0.5.2.  Please refer to the
