I never knew about this problem until I saw this.  I went and looked and my
storage was 95% taken!  I immidiatly shut down websphere and now it's below
30% and my eRPG apps are running 100% faster.  (I thought they seemed
slower, I was blaming it on the firewall traffic).

Holy smokes.  that blows big time.  Not only is WAS slow as a dog (admin
tool) but it's a resource hog more than I originally thought.  

Has anyone tested to see if Tomcat does this as well?  I may end up running
servlets on another port if this is what WAS is all about.  That's pure
junk.

Chalk another one up for Net.Data and eRPG.  :)

Brad

Subject: Webshpere problems on AS/400 temporary storage increasing.


3 * AS/400 170 V4R4M0 Websphere 2.03. We run 4 instances and intermitantly
are seeing current unprotected used increase until an IPL is needed the only
way to stop it increasing is to ENDTCPSVR *HTTP HTTPSVR(*ALL)
Has anyone else seen this ???? This happens 10 - 15 times a day on each
AS/400 ?
Regards,
Clive.
