You have probably ignored several sysopr-msg's warning you 

See the QSTGLOWLMT/ACN system values for preventive actions.


Btw i've met a system stopped with 99.9998% That's right, 99.9998% . A s/38, 
but I managed to get a print of WRKSYSSTS even at that
handicap'ed machine. The print rested on the IT managers bill board for years 
after that. Most commands did not work, but I managed
to find that a job has loaded lots of data into QTEMP, and though it was at 
night (delayed from another job) alone with a customers
machine there were no possibility but to end the job. That solved the situation 
as QTEMP was removed.

What is m/c status? If it's not the control panel, then one command at least 
must work. Start deleting whatever you can (probably
not DLTLIB LIB(*ALL)). QSYS/QHST*  QUSRSYS MSGQ's that are not needed etc. As 
soon as you have room for it, a RCLSPLSTG - it
reclaims storage without any loss (so does RGZPFM normally, but they need much 
more room to run).

But again: You should never meet that situation.

Emne: 98% ASP Utilisation ???
Dato: 4. november 1999 11:47

Hi folks,

Last day I faced a strange situation. During month end processing the AS400
suddenly stopped responding. No commands would work. On further
investigation the m/c status showed that, it was running on 98% ASP
utilisation. Ultimately an IPL had to be done because nothing worked. After
the IPL we could delete and clean up space. Has anybody faced such a
problem? In such situations what needs to be done for a clean up without an
IPL?
