Error description

  • The SYSPROC.DB2LOAD stored procedure may trap if it is invoked
    simultaneously by two or more applications. The procedure was
    not thread-safe in the new v95 threaded engine architecture.
    The stack of the trap files would usually show a clp routine at
    the top of the stack, like so:
    
    <StackTrace>
    sqloCrashOnCriticalMemoryValidationFailure
    sqlofmblkEx
    clpprs
    clp_parse
    clpParseLoad
    sqluParseAndExecuteLoad
    db2load
    sqloInvokeFnArgs
    
    or
    
    <Stack Trace>
    sqloCrashOnCriticalMemoryValidationFailure
    sqlofmblkEx
    clpPostLoadFreeDynMem
    sqluParseAndExecuteLoad
    db2load
    sqloInvokeFnArgs
    
    This APAR fixes the this thread-safety issue.
    

Local fix

  • Avoid multiple invocations of sysproc.db2load at the same time.
