Worn piston rings are allowing a small amount of piston blow-by on a 2-stroke main diesel engine cylinder, but due to the circumstances, it is not possible to stop and do a piston overhaul. What is the correct, temporary action to take?

Increase cylinder oil feed rate slightly and monitor the scavenge space drains.
