A couple of weeks ago I applied BM SP2 to our BM 3.9 SP1 server. I had also
issued the SET ACL Rule Hit Log To Text File=1 command. Because logging didn't
start right away I finally decided to reboot the server to try to get it going.
We did that Friday afternoon, and today the server keeps abending. The server
suffered multiple abends this morning and finally stopped processing traffic
altogether - we had to reboot. Since then the abends have resumed.

While I realize this isn't proof of a cause-effect relationship I do have
precedent for my assumption. Before SP2 there was a limited availability FTF of
aclcheck.nlm that was supposed to allow logging. I applied it at the time, and
immediately our server started abending. I went back to the old aclcheck.nlm,
and things returned to normal.

Today I have issued the command to disable text file logging and will reboot the
server before the day as over to make sure the change takes effect.

Are there any known issues with abends occurring from enabling these logs? I've
included the first portions of this morning's first abend log as well as the
first abend the reboot. I'll be happy to post the full logs if it will help.
Thanks for any suggestions.

-Jim Wagner
