APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Expiration times for Collection Services file collections
(*CSFILE)  and management collection objects (*CSMGTCOL) may be
incorrect on systems with time zones that include year offsets.
This may cause collections to be deleted prematurely or not at
all.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE69451 :
-----------------------------
Expiration times are now reported correctly on systems with time
zone year offsets.

Note #1: This PTF will only fix the expiration times of
collections that are created after this PTF is applied.
Expiration times of older collections may also be fixed but
this is dependent on several factors and is not guaranteed.

Note #2: Expiration times are stored in UTC time
and can be displayed with this SQL statement:

SELECT CCLIB, CCCNNAME, CCCLNFMT, CCEXP2 FROM QUSRSYS/QAPMCCCNTB
WHERE CCLIB = '<name of configured collection library>'
ORDER BY CCLIB, CCCNNAME

If the expiration time is all zeros, one of the following will
apply:
* The object is part of the active (current) collection; its
expiration time will be set after the collection has ended.

* The object is permanent and will not be deleted.

Note #3: Expired objects are deleted only from the configured
collection library.
This is displayed/changed with the LIB keyword of the CFGPFRCOL
command.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE69451 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


After applying or removing this PTF, Collection Services and any
applications that use the performance collector APIs QPMWKCOL and
QPMLPFRD must be ended and then restarted for the change to take
effect.

1. End any applications using the performance collector APIs QPMWKCOL
and QPMLPFRD.
Note: Make sure that jobs QPMACLCT and QPMASERV are no longer
running.

2. End Collection Services by entering the following on the command
line:
ENDPFRCOL FRCCOLEND(*YES)

3. Rebuild the collection table:
CALL QPMCCRBD PARM('*ALL      ' x'00000000' '<Name of configured
collection library>')
The first parameter, *ALL, must have a length of 10 characters (pad the
end with blanks).
The third parameter, the name of the configured collection library,
must also have a length of 10 characters (pad the end with blanks).
The name of the configured collection library can be displayed by
running the command CFGPFRCOL and hitting F4.

4. Restart Collection Services by entering the following on the
command line:
STRPFRCOL

5. Restart any applications using the performance collector APIs
QPMWKCOL and QPMLPFRD.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI64293 :
=================================================

After applying or removing this PTF the Collection Services
collector
job (QYPSPFRCOL) must be ended and restarted for the change to take
effect.

1. To end Collection Services enter the following on the command
line:
ENDPFRCOL FRCCOLEND(*YES)

2. To start Collection Services enter the following on the
command
line:
STRPFRCOL

Before restarting Collection Services, you should consider other
functions that may be using data provided by Collection Services.
Such
functions may be impacted when Collection Services is ended. Error
messages may be produced and the affected functions may need to be
restarted.

Examples of functions that are dependent on Collection Services
include
Management Central monitors and applications that use the
performance
collector APIs QPMWKCOL and QPMLPFRD. If applications are using the
performance collector APIs, you will find server jobs QPMASERV and
QPMACLCT active on your system.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI60031 :
