Error description

  • When listing view private files in an IBM Rational ClearCase
    dynamic view using the 'lsprivate' command, the '-long' option
    may take significantly (? 10x) more time than the -short option
    if there are large numbers of view private files in the view.
    

Local fix

  • Currently, the only way to avoid this issue is to not use the
    -long option.

Problem conclusion

  • "cleartool lsprivate -l" no longer looks for "view.dat" files
    and minimizes opens of the "clearcase_specdev" file.
    
    A fix is available in ClearCase version 8.0.1.7
