PTFs in error?


The the jobs with a lot of temporary storage are the APIAxxxxxx jobs but we used
to restart sap once a week but now we are doing it every night and we are still
having to delete these jobs to keep the system up during the day.

This has only happened since we loaded os400 4.4 and the latest ptfs, we have
more disk on order but if it is growing this much buy the end of a week the
temporary storage will end up larger that the database.

Thank you for your response.

Hi Wendy,

are you talking about jobs that start with QSOCxxxx or are you talking of
jobs that start with APIAxxxxx ?
It is not known that some QSOC-Jobs consume that much memory.But the
APIA-Jobs may consume a lot of memory as these are the shadow-jobs of the
WPs. They are opening up to 1200 ODPs with up to 300 KB each. So this may
become a lot of storage. Do you see with DSPTMPSTG that the storage is
spreaded over the WPs or ist 95% in one WP ? Then this could have looped
When you kill these APIA-Jobs, this will result WP-restarts on the

Just for your information, it would be possible change the
opticonnect-setting to TCP/IP. Then the shadow-processes are named QXDARCVR.
This can be done on V4R4 and higher with opticonnect as well. When you
install 8xx hardware you probably move to gigabit ethernet because
opticonnect is no longer supported on the new hardware (only on special
compatibility towers). Then TCP/IP becomes used anyway.
TCP/IP over opticonnect (or gigabit ethernet) are a big improvement for the
QFileSvr.400 because this uses only TCP/IP and not the SNA that was
supported only in the past via opticonnect.
