  • Many DB2 organizations today experience deadlocks, timeouts and resource unavailable situations during batch processing. Determining the root cause of these batch-delaying problems is often a tedious task for DBAs. DeadLock Advisor makes the job of pinpointing these issues and which job caused them effortless by placing easy to understandmessages in the job log of both jobs involved in the deadlock, timeout, or resource unavailable condition. In this way, application developers can troubleshoot their jobs without the assistance of a DBA.DeadLock Advisor places a message in the job log of every batch job that experiences a deadlock timeout or resource unavailable condition. Further, for conditions involving two batch jobs, even though typically only one job receives a negative SQL code such as -911 (and neither job receives a message), DeadLock Advisor places a message in both job logs. The deadlock (or resource unavailable) condition is then instantly visible to any involved party. No other DB2 tool available pinpoints the source of deadlock timeouts in this manner.
  • DeadLock Advisor expedites this by placing an easy to understand message in the joblog of each application involved. Application developers can troubleshoot their own jobs without a DBA’s assistance.For conditions involving two applications, DB2 will return a negative sequel code for only one job, and neither job will receive a message. In contrast, DeadLock Advisor will place a message in both joblogs. The problematic condition, as well as it's cause, is instantly made visible to anyone involved. DeadLock Advisor is the only DB2 tool available that identifies the source of deadlock timeouts in this manner.
  • In this scenario, two applications have become deadlocked. The hr monthly application begins updating the project table, prior to updating the employee table, which is being updated by hr daily. When hr monthly attempts to update the employee table, it must wait for hr daily to finish. While hr monthly waits, it keeps the project table locked.Hr daily then attempts to update the project table, which is of course still locked by hr monthly. The monthly application has deadlocked the daily application. Normally in this situation, only the daily application would receive a 911 sequel code, and neither application would receive a message. To understand why this deadlock occurred, a DBA would have to spend considerable time searching DB2 logs and other data sources. Deadlock advisor saves time by placing an easy to understand, English like message in the joblog of both applications.
  • The offended application, hr daily, receives a message identifying the offending application, or the application that caused the deadlock. In this case, the offending application is hr monthly.
  • The offending application also receives a message, identifying the application that it deadlocked.
  • Deadlock Advisor also reports details on timeouts. In this scenario, hr monthly causes hr daily to timeout. Normally, only hr daily would receive a 911 sequel code, and neither application would receive a message.
  • Deadlock advisor places a message in hr daily's joblog, explaining that it was timed out due to hr monthly.
  • Hrmonthly receives a message stating that it caused hrdaily to time out.
  • TS0 timeouts are reported to the offended application’s joblog. In this scenario, TS0 causes the hourly application to timeout.
  • The hourly application receives a message stating that it was timed out due to TSO.
  • If the database is stopped, an application will typically receive a 9 oh 4 sequel code. In this scenario, hr daily is attempting to update a table in a stopped database.
  • Hrdaily receives a message indicating that the database is stopped for all access.
