APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • Samsung Fire and Marine Insurance experienced slow graceful
    takeover due to large number of agents to force off on Primary.
    Currently, they are unable to monitor the current state of
    takeover and the progress of applications left to be forced off.
    They considered this is as an major usability issue and requests
    db2pd to be enhanced.
    

Local fix

  • The fix is to introduce a new db2pd element,
    "ClientsRemainingOnP" to the db2pd -hadr output. This new
    element is only displayed during takeover on the primary.  The
    new field reports number of applications left to be forced off.
    The user may use "db2pd -applications" to list details of the
    remaining applications.
