Error description

  • STMM tries to shrink the bufferpools by a factor
    (sqlbScaleAutoBPsByFactor()):
    FUNCTION: DB2 UDB, buffer pool services,
    sqlbScaleAutoBPsByFactor, probe:12828

    Defer writing on-disk changes for BP ID=7;old size=156585; new
    size=57365
    
    In some scenario the bufferpool is shrunk to a negative size
    leading to the sqlbfix error:

    FUNCTION: DB2 UDB, buffer pool services,
    sqlbSetNumSlotsAndNBPForNewRTBPDef, probe:20
    MESSAGE : ADM6069W  Buffer pool "XXXXXXXX" (ID "8") has a
    NUMBLOCKPAGES value of
              "4096" which exceeds the maximum supported value for a
    buffer pool of
              this size.  The NUMBLOCKPAGES value for this buffer
    pool has been
              reduced to "-2147483648" for its current activation.
    The value of
              NUMBLOCKPAGES can be permanently changed by using the
