Our HP server, NW 6.5 SP8, running all GW apps (v8, POA, MTA, GWIA, WA, CPH), Apache/Tomcat, and a Java app for Skyward, abended the other night. It restarted before writing to Abend.log, but CPQIML did catch the multiple abends:

Class Severity Cnt Initial-Time Update-Time Description
----- -------- --- ------------ ----------- -----------
OS Critical 1 08-26-2009 08:32p 08-26-2009 08:32p Abnormal Program Termination (Abend: Attempt to release an unacquired spinlock Running Process: Java_793 Main EIP: 10B1EFh)

There were 135 of these, all at the same time, prior to the server reboot.

My question is - since it indicates "Java_793", is there a way to tell which java process caused this? I thought that maybe 793 would be the ID, but it doesn't match to the current java app ID's that were running prior to the abend:

Classname ID
================================================== ========== ============
com.skyward.DAS.DAS............................... .......... 487
com.skyward.DAS.DAS............................... .......... 508
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap............. .......... 523
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap............. .......... 527
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap............. .......... 418

If the abend happens again, I'll look into it further, although it is likely an attachment in WebAccess that caused it (that's the most common cause of abends on this server, although we do run all the GW apps in protected space). It's not worth opening a Novell incident, I'm just wondering if the "Java_793" can be tied back to one of the loaded java apps.

Thanks,
Michelle
