    ****************************************************************
    Sporadically, clearmake builds will fail with errors such as
    "abe: Error: Unable to get modification time for written
    object " or "Interference from another process?".
    When clearmake builds are running, the MVFS filesystem
    maintains process-specific data for each process running as
    part of the build environment. On busy systems, where large
    numbers of processes are running and therefore process ids
    are being recycled very quickly, it was possible that stale
    process data could be found and used.  The sporadic errors
    occurred when clearmake attempted to use stale data.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions 7.1.1.06, 7.1.2.03.
