Having DB2 Lock Timeout Problems?
I know from time to time most applications experience lock timeout problems especially for new applications or when porting applications from other database platforms to DB2. By default, DB2 only reports on deadlocks and lock escalations. If you are running DB2 9.7, there is new capability to help you in resolving lock timeouts. You can enable this new support by setting the mon_lck_msg_lvl DB CFG parameter to 3. 1 is the default setting. This setting can be changed dynamically online, “db2 update db cfg for dbname using mon_lck_msg_lvl”. Once set to 3, additional lock timeout information will be captured and written to the admin notification log. Stay tuned!
