OPS/MVS Event Management & Automation

Issue/Introduction

Message is occurring four times daily consistently about the same time of day.  OPS/MVS is active on the LPAR but is not  actively managing work yet.  All 300+ resources are in PASSIVE mode and the 20+ time-of-day schedules are not enabled.  We are about to start actively managing all resources and 20+ time-of-day schedules. 

Is this a problem?

 

Environment

Release : 13.5

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

The OPS3441O and HealthChecker warning messages are both associated to this running out of process blocks condition - although we only observed the high evaluations condition for the OPS3441O message. We recommend to 'stagger' any automation that can cause this - ie. drain 30 initiators at a time in place of ALL the initiators. Some customers may instead opt to just increase the number of PROCESS blocks for now.
