Mike,
Yes it is possible. For V6, you can use the SBMJOB command to start the
server and specify a job queue for the JOBQ parameter which is associated
with a different subsystem.
This page in the documentation,
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wsdoc400/v6r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.iseries.doc/info/ae/ae/snsapp.htm,
 shows how to use the SBMJOB command to start a  server. Instead of
specifying JOBQ(QWAS6/QWASJOBQ)  you can specify a JOBQ you have created
and associated with your own subsystem.

In V6.1, we enhanced the startServer command to allow you to specify on the
command line many of the parameters we use when issuing the SBMJOB under
the covers - thus allowing you to override things like the job queue
without having to use the SBMJOB command yourself.

Frances,

I'm not much of a System i admin, so please forgive my ignorance, but
is it possible to run multiple WAS profiles on a single system and
have each of them running in their own memory pool?  We run multiple
WAS profiles on the same system, and at times they fight with each
other.  Right now, all of them run in the QWAS6 subsystem.  We'd like
to continue to run multiple profiles on the same machine, but we'd
like to run each one in it's own memory pool.  The link you gave seems
to show you how to put the subsystem in its own memory pool, and I
don't think this will help us.

Thanks!

Mike E.

The problem description sounds as if you are exceeding the amount of
memory
allocated to the storage pool WAS is running in. At that point, paging
becomes excessive and garbage collection can fall behind and then just
when
you want DMPJVM to work, it doesn't.

This:
[12/4/06 23:47:43:931 CST] 00000011 SystemOut     O C400WARNI:
485997/QEJBSVR/SERVER1 GC heap uses 107% of the non-reserved pool.

 JVM GC Heap Size(kB)  Effective PoolSize(kB):408273 381196
is indicating that heap is becoming too large for the pool. And it is
indicating that the effective pool size (amount of memory in pool
currently) is approx 375M (my math is non existent in this case - it is
381196/1024 M). That is pretty small in general for WAS and the GC heap
(4082873K) is not particularly large for WAS - is it possible other
workloads are taking a lot of memory?
Note: The same support (heap monitor) that sends the message above to
SystemOut.log also sends messages to QSYSOPR message queue.

These messages are a side effect of what is happening with memory usage:
[11/17/06 8:58:11:480 CST] 000001a8 ThreadMonitor W   WSVR0605W: Thread
"WebContainer : 8" (00000186) has been active for 730294 milliseconds
and may be hung.  There is/are 9 thread(s) in total in the server that
may be hung.
and should not be taken to be a thread issue. If the GC recovered (say
you
were able to push a bunch of memory into the base pool), you would most
likely see corresponding messages saying the threads had "come back" and
were no longer possibly hung.

One recommendation is to run WAS in its on pool with dedicated memory -
how
much memory would depend on what your server utilizes at peak times.
DMPJVM
is a good way to check that (when it can complete).
This FAQ is for V5.1 and earlier but tells how to associate the WAS
subsystem with a different share pool in order to isolate it.  For V6,
subsystem is QWAS6 and the *SBSD is QWAS6/.QWAS6

If problem continues, you may want to contact IBM support so that they
can
do some analysis of the problem.

We are having a problem since we have upgraded to WAS 6.0.2.15 on the
iSeries. Unfortunately, we have little information at this time, but I
thought I would throw out what is happening and see if anyone has any
input.



On three separate occasions WAS has ground to a halt and stopped
responding to page requests. It is not really hung, per se. It is more
like it is stuck in a loop or paging out memory or something. When it
happens, CPU usage, when viewed using WRKACTJOB, shows minimal usage,
not only for WAS but also for the whole system. Other jobs seem to be
running fine e.g, interactive and batch jobs.



We had one instance where there were two remote data connections that
someone had that were using only a little cpu, but we thought those jobs
may be doing intensive I/O, so we killed those jobs and WAS became
responsive immediately. However, in the other cases another job causing
the problem could not be identified absolutely.



The last time this happened I tried running the DMPJVM command, but it
simply hung and never finished. I have also tried to get into the admin
to check the Tivoli Performance Viewer to look at heap size, but the
admin app would not come up.



WAS is currently set up to use the BASE memory pool. We have 5 or 6 gig
of ram in the machine and BASE normally has 2.5 to 3.5 gig allocated to
it, depending on interactive. Using the Tivoli Performance Viewer in the
WAS admin, WAS usually has a memory allocation of 500-700 meg, and the
used memory is 250-300meg.



We have gotten some error messages in the logs occasionally that make me
think that this may be a memory issue:

[12/4/06 23:47:43:931 CST] 00000011 SystemOut     O C400WARNI:
485997/QEJBSVR/SERVER1 GC heap uses 107% of the non-reserved pool.

 JVM GC Heap Size(kB)  Effective PoolSize(kB):408273 381196





I am not sure how to read this. It appears it may be saying that the
pool size has shrunk to 381meg and it is using 408meg. One hypothesis I
have at this point is that other jobs in the BASE memory pool are using
a large amount of ram and that ram available to WAS is being cut back
because of it and WAS is either running the GC constantly, or worse, it
is paging out to disk.



One time when we tried to shut down the server when it became
non-responsive we had this in the logs:

Which made me wonder if it was a thread issue, but I could also see this
happening if the GC was dominating or the jvm was paging to disk.



What I am wondering is if anyone else has had problems like this or if
anyone can give me any ideas on what to check or change. Thanks for any
help you can give us.
