Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of WebSphere Compute Grid V8          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A job end notification can be missed,   *
    *                      causing a WSGRID proxy job to remain    *
    *                      waiting for a job to complete.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a job is submitted with WSGRID, a job watcher monitors the
    job for its status.  When this watcher sees that the job is in a
    final state, the WSGRID proxy job ends.  If the updated state
    does not make it back to the scheduler (due to a network issue,
    for example), then the proxy job will keep waiting on the final
    status.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A code update has been made to cause the scheduler's view of
    the job status to be refreshed from the endpoint if the proxy
    job hasn't received a status update after some time.  Once a
    correct and final status is retrieved in that way, the proxy
    job will end.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for fixpack 8.0.0.5.
