Why did the leap second cause trouble with AS Java?


Last weekend another leap second was introduced and propagated via NTP. Suprisingly this caused problems with high system CPU time on Linux systems with AS Java. SLES 11 and RHEL6 were affected, probably others also.

Is there any SAP note about this issue? I think we have some years time until the next leap second approaches, hopefully the AS Java instances will be immune by then.

(Note: This problem is not related to the Linux system hang problem due to leap seconds, SuSE and Red Hat already had included bugfixes against that.)
