APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In Solaris system, pi/po columns from vmstat include
    Executable/Anonymous/FileSystem. In AIX/HP and Linux, we check
    pi/po column for evidence of system paging, however in Solaris,
    pi/po column shows the number including both process pages and
    file system pages. So in the current db2fodc code, we only
    capture "vmstat" output, and the pi/po will be misleading in
    Solaris since it doesn't only show process paging.
    

Local fix

  • Run vmstat -p manually in Solaris
