We have seen a significant increase in the time it takes to run our weeklty backup which is a simply CL program calling RUNBCKUP(*WEEKLY). According to the log, it looks like it sits and does "nothing" for hours and hours. See the two log entries below:
CPC2197 Completion 00 05/24/08 00:23:25.289040 QLICHLBL QSYS 013C BK_WKL2004 SCCOSYS 0059

CPI6705 Information 00 05/24/08 10:07:45.513192 QTAERR QSYS 00EA QSRSVDEQ QSYS 0499
Message . . . . : 537 blocks processed for sequence 1, volume BACK01, on device TAP06.
Cause . . . . . : 537 blocks were processed for file label QFILEUPR, sequence 1 for volume BACK01 loaded on device TAP06. The maximum block size is 262144. The tape file was opened at 05/24/08 06:47:16 and closed at 05/24/08 10:07:45. The total time the file was open was 12029 seconds. If the device is a tape library the cartridge is *N and the resource is *N.
You can see it sits from 00:23 to 6:47 when it starts writing to tape. It is doing some processing. The reference to QFILEUPR indicates it is processing security data. My research so far leads me to think it has something to do with Private Authorties, but I was hoping someone out there had more insight or experience witht his.
