Configure the Problem Determination Artifact Manager to ensure that the file system artifacts used for resolving errors are appropriately managed.
® Expeditor client runtime, while designed to run for extended periods without a restart, in some cases can experience unexpected error conditions. When these unexpected error conditions occur, in some cases Java
™ heap dumps and core dumps can be generated to provide problem determination information for the service and support teams. Problem determination data can be critical in resolving these unexpected errors.
In other cases, problem determination can be more explicitly gathered by executing the IBM
® Support Assistant collection mechanisms built into the product. Both of these two cases produce file system artifacts in well-known locations on the client platform.
Over time, Java
heap dumps and core dumps and ISA data collection jars can come to consume large amounts of disk space. To ensure that the file system space is managed appropriately, older files are deleted periodically. An aging algorithm is used to allow the files to remain for a configurable number of days to allow them to be referenced during a problem determination session, but after they have exceeded an age limit, they are deleted. This aging period can be administratively configured and can also be administratively disabled. The default period is five days.
The Problem Determination Artifact Manager provides this capability for the Lotus
Expeditor runtime client.
