Introduction:

In the course of time after a restart of task ENF, it is more and more average frame count and cpu consumed.

Some LPARs uses after a while up to 10% of its MSU capacity for this task.

I have recently taken over the product and can not properly estimate whether our definitions are meaningful.

The configuration on every LPAR is the same.


 

Question:

Why do I have a high ENF CPU usage?

Environment:
CA Common Services R14.1
Answer:

In fact, you incorrectly set the JOBFAIL event to INACTIVE:

EVENT(JOBFAIL,INACT)

This configuration error prevent ENF from properly processing events thus causing long chains in storage
thus leading to the witnessed consumption on resources.

You have to update your ENF parameters to set your event JOBFAIL to ACTIVE:

EVENT(JOBFAIL,ACTIVE)
