Issue/Introduction

Hello,

We received the following error message for ca-vantage:

VAN0590E: GETMAIN FAILED, LEN=     67,108,944 SP=000 ID=MUEWAREA FOR_MEMORY_MAP 
VAN0590D   1,235,222,528=REGION LIMIT FOR MEMORY ABOVE THE LINE                 
VAN0590D      66,445,312=MAX LENGTH CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ABOVE THE LINE (AT ADR=7AD32000)  
VAN0590D      11,010,048=REGION LIMIT FOR MEMORY BELOW THE LINE                 
VAN0590D       7,258,112=MAX LENGTH CURRENTLY AVAILABLE BELOW THE LINE (AT ADR=00328000)

Some months ago MLIMIT parameter was updated from 50G to 60G. Does this error mean that we need to update MLIMIT to a higher value?

 

 

Cause

Large amounts of storage are obtained by Vantage for processing the CATALOGF object. 

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager

Resolution

The memory issues were caused by Vantage processing involving the CATALOGF object.  To avoid such storage problems, the newer Vantage objects using the IBM Catalog Search Interface (CSI) should be used, as provided via Vantage PTF SO05989.   The DSKCATLF script which collects data for the CATALOGF object can be deactivated by setting ENABLED=N and LOAD_SCRIPT=N for this script, and removing it from processing by issuing the command  "F SAMS,AUTO,DELETE=SYSTEM,DSKCATLF". 

Additional Information

The cover letter for PTF SO05989:

ENHANCEMENT DESCRIPTION:                                                 
This sysmod provides support for new CA Vantage objects that list        
entries (such as data sets, VSAM files, GDGs, aliases,  user catalog     
connectors, and paths),and information about the attributes of these     
entries from the Integrated Catalog Facility (ICF) using a IBM Catalog   
Search Interface (CSI).                                                  
                                                                         
These new objects provide more thorough information than the existing    
CA Vantage object BCS Data Set Entries(CATALOGF), including information  
about the encryption status of the entries (Supported only on z/OS V2R3  
and higher), or about space reduction if compacted.                      
                                                                         
Furthermore, the new objects are faster in execution and consume less    
CPU and memory resources to provide the data.                            
                                                                         
You can find the new objects in the CA Vantage object tree,              
under Catalog Management:
