Error description

  • The cross component tracing capabilites allow WebSphere
    Application Server to trace a request across the muliple
    internal components that are used to service that request. In
    this case there are times when the requestID - the tag that is
    used to track individual requests through the components - is
    null or not unique.

    ****************************************************************
    The following is an example of a XCT log entry having a null
    requestID:
    [6/10/15 14:28:24:121 CEST] 000023fe  I
    UOW= source=com.ibm.websphere.XCT org=null prod=null
    component=null thread=[WebContainer : 28] requestID=[null]
    BEGIN AEaOrE0PbkN-AAAAAAAHBF7 AEaOrE0PbkN-AAAAAAAG+pa
    In the case where the requestID is not correctly propagated,
    the requestID shown could have a value equal to a completely
    different and active request. This is a logging issue with no
    actual service interruption.
