Error description

  • When using db2exfmt for explain plan with languages other than
    English, the
    statement was not formatted correctly.
    There are gaps inserted into the plan because of unprintable
    characters used .
    
    Option to format the plan correctly was to use "-no_map_char"
    with db2exfmt.
    
    When we run db2top in the following steps:
    
    db2top -d <databasename>
    * Use l option to list the application
    * Choose an agent of SQL application using option 'a'
    * Use option 'x' to generate explain plan
    
    db2top ends up calling db2exfmt for an explain plan. However we
    
    can not enter the option of "-no_map_char",
    Therefore the output is not formatted correctly.
