APK421S Error Attempting AFP to AIX Archive
« on: April 04, 2017, 12:04:33 PM »
 Have an AFP "statement" file, which we index. File is small typical days, large on "month end". 2 to 4 Gb.
Actually already breaking the file up into 4 or 5 pieces. And this general size even month end usually works.

 Getting the following error, which may somehow be storage related. But the error message is sufficiently generic it doesn't confirm that. ACIF directories are empty, and 20 Gb.

That is a healthy sized file:

>   2,730,488,513 bytes to process

Do you have enough space in the /arsacif/acif1/ directory to hold everything?

 Thanks Ed. I know you're more on the mainframe side, so thanks for responding.
ACIF available space is a suspicion, but the CMOD error message is sufficiently vague to not confirm that.
 ACIF directory (we have 4 total, but apparently it uses one) is an empty 20 Gb file, which on normal month ends is sufficient (there's a pre-processing step that carves up a larger file into smaller pieces that are consistent from month to month). The input AFP file is 2.6 Gb.

UNIX errno 12 is "out of space".  So increase the size of your temporary or processing directories.

 For heck of it, attempted to archive 2GB on our test system, which our ACIF is the same size 20Gb.
 But for some strange reason has realmem         8126464. Whereas on Production system Realmem         65011712.
 The APF statement file archived and indexed:
 Loaded 17603 rows into the database
 Document compression type used - OD77.  Bytes Stored = >1902230824< Rows = >17603

So thinking maybe the first error message APK421S Return Code 6 possibly is more specific diagnostics than the second message with Return Code 12.

 My server team states I was misreading, and production server has much more memory available.
Back to needing to know more specifics on vague error message.
Worked on one system with the same amount of available ACIF space, didn't work on other (production) system.

In standard UNIX error numbers, error no 6 is "no such device or address"...

That probably doesn't help much though...  Maybe the file never existed because you were temporarily out of space?  Is this a recurring error?  Can you clean out your existing filesystems of any files that might be clogging up the works?  :)

Initially started with a large AFP file. But now starting to crop up with large text files (large, being 1.5 Gb. But at the same time, 3 Gb index files will work.
 Attempted to archive text file that had a problem, manually with does not use ACIF directories, also fails with same error trying to close the file.
 So, would have to ask, what file system(s)? And why does the error message not point to something specific?
 Using the usual measuring displays, and navigating to local file system directories, don't see anything that sticks out.

 Restarted CMOD and entire AIX server we run on, and initial results are promising in that 2 files that wouldn't work, now do.
Surmising even though the error message is severely lacking in useful information, may have been a buildup of fragemented memory or something, since server had been up for over a year.
 Web search of an unrelated AFP message for APK421S came up with one obscure hit for an AFP utility product referencing a memory error.
