Thanks for the quick response. The first thing I did was google... I should have said that in the original question. I saw both of those, and both are fixes for IBM problems. We seem to be up to date on PTFs.

Are you saying that this is almost always an indication of an IBM problem? Or, can this message appear in jobs for a problem with our coding or methods? I was thinking our code is probably the problem, but why and how do we fix it. BUT, I would love to blame IBM ;-).

Subject: Additional 16 megabytes of storage allocated for this job... why?

In many QZDASOINIT jobs, we find the PWS0083 message:

Additional 16 megabytes of storage allocated for this job.

Is this message "normal", or does it point to a memory leak.  We are
using our own implementation of connection pooling, and some JDBC
connections can potentially stay in memory and used over and over for
quite a long time (days).  Is this a problem?

Do we need to close and open new JDBC connections more frequently to
allow these jobs to release the resources (I'm just assuming that they
would release the resources after closing the JDBC Connection)?
