Error description

  • The db2trc facility when used with a 64-bit copy of DB2 on a
    64-bit version of Linux or Windows may not be able to trace a
    32-bit process that is running on that machine.
    
    This would include any 32-bit application.
    
    The trace would seem like it is working but when the trace is
    formatted only the trace records for 64-bit processes will be
    captured.
    

Local fix

  • If possible install a 32-bit copy of DB2 on the 64-bit machine
    and then take a DB2 trace using that copy.
