After IPL restart of GoldenGate on z/OS spawns many threads

After an IPL this morning GoldenGate will not restart properly. Instead of GGSMGR starting a few threads it is starting many.

*BPXI040I PROCESS LIMIT MAXPROCUSER HAS REACHED 95% OF ITS CURRENT 350
 CAPACITY OF 500 FOR PID=17039476 IN JOB GGSMGRST RUNNING IN
 ADDRESS SPACE 02BB
 $HASP373 BPXAS STARTED
 IEF403I BPXAS - STARTED - TIME=01.30.12
 BPXP024I BPXAS INITIATOR STARTED ON BEHALF OF JOB GGSMGR7 RUNNING IN
 ASID 0032
*BPXI040I PROCESS LIMIT MAXPROCUSER HAS REACHED 100% OF ITS CURRENT 356
 CAPACITY OF 500 FOR PID=17039474 IN JOB GGSMGR9 RUNNING IN
 ADDRESS SPACE 02B0

Even attempting to restart GG with everything but GGSMGR started we still experience the problem.


System is down. When restarted, it takes an IPL to remove.
