Error description

  • Db2 ATS ("administrative task scheduler") might stop executing
    scheduled task after running ADMIN_TASK_UPDATE routine under
    specific timing conditions.
    SYSTOOLS.ADMINTASKSTATUS administrative view report no new
    execution entries as the result. A backtrace from db2acd process
    (its process ID is reported e.g. in "db2pd -edus") will show one
    thread with db2HmonAtsPollDatabase on the stack waiting in
    AtsList::lockIt -> ossLockGetConflict
    
    ossLockGetConflict
    AtsList::lockIt
    AtsDaemon::removeTaskFromPending
    AtsDbInfo::refreshTasks
    db2HmonAtsPollDatabase
    
    and another in a stack with AtsTask::lockIt ->
    ossLockGetConflict:
    
    ossLockGetConflict
    AtsTask::lockIt
    AtsDaemon::run
    AtsThread::entryPoint
    
    Backtrace can be obtained using OS tools (e.g. gstack on Linux
    or procstack on AIX).
    

Local fix

  • Killing db2acd process will restart ATS as db2acd will be
    automatically respawned:
    $ kill <pid_of_db2acd>
