Automatic FODC data generation

When an outage occurs and automatic first occurrence data capture (FODC) is enabled, data is collected based on symptoms. The data collected is specific to what is needed to diagnose the outage.

One or many messages, including those defined as "critical" are used to mark the origin of an outage.

Trap files contain information such as:
  • The amount of free virtual storage
  • Values associated with the product's configuration parameters and registry variables at the time the trap occurred
  • Estimated amount of memory used by the Db2® product at the time of the trap
  • Information that provides a context for the outage

The raw stack dump might be included in an ASCII trap file.

Dump files that are specific to components within the database manager are stored in the appropriate FODC package directory.
