The SO16131 represents the enhancement to enable IBM's IOSSPOF service. With this feature, any Single Point of Failure detected by IBM's service will be reported on.        

If a Single Point of Failure is detected, messages produced by the IOSSPOF   
service will be issued.

BROADCOM.TMC and vvvvvv (unit-addr) with                                    
BROADCOM.AUDIT share the same                                                
physical control unit.                                                       

Single-Point-of-Failure is a service offered by IBM to identify if there is a single common piece of hardware that would affect access to two files. 

sample - If  a Control Unit is shared, and if the Control Unit fails for any reason then you would lose both the TMC and the Audit files. Which would then cause a LOSS of data until the Control-Unit is repaired. 

In parallel, the LU03509 Apar has been written  to permit to have a way  to be more granular in the verification.
