Issue



On AIX servers with the SCSP prevention feature enabled, system performance noticably degrades when running a large number of active processes.
http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH180374

Symantec Critical System Protection on AIX comes with kernel modules. These modules are not registered correctly with the ODM (Object Data Manager) classes. This causes SCSP to conflict with other kernel module installations that occur after SCSP installation.

When enabling the AIX MODS (Memory Overlay Detection System), a deferred-free or redzoned memory read error is created in the AIX system error log after the installation of the SCSP agent.
