Error description

  • When using IBM Rational ClearCase views with a large cache
    (ᅮ 32MB) setting the view_server process becomes 100% busy when
    'cleartool setcs -current' is run, if the views object cache is
    100% full.
    This behaviour is seen for both local and remote Dynamic and
    Snapshot views.  The process eventually self recovers after
    30-90 minutes.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    None.
