  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When queries are executed with a high degree of parallelism
    while accessing column based tables, a rare timing hole may
    result in memory corruption, causing DB2 to abend.
    
    While the trapping function stack may vary, the most common
    function stack observed is :
    diagnoseMemoryCorruptionAndCrash__13SQLO_MEM_POOLFUlCPCcCb
    sqloDiagnoseFreeBlockFailure__FP8SMemFBlkCb
    sqlofmblkEx
    freeMem__Q3_7ibm_cde8services4HeapFCPCcCUlPv
    freeHeap__Q3_7ibm_cde8services15ManagedHeapBaseFv
    __dt__Q3_7ibm_cde8services15ManagedHeapBaseFv
    __dt__Q3_7ibm_cde8services11ManagedHeapXTUcSP0_Fv
    __dt__Q3_7ibm_cde5query14QueryResourcesFv
    __dt__Q3_7ibm_cde5query9SchedulerFv

Local fix

  • reducing the maximum or default degree of parallelism will tend
    to avoid the problem, eg. to 4
