  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In pureScale environment, page reuse for LOBs is governed by
    internal readLSN. A deleted page can only be reused when the
    following are true: (a) delete is committed; (b) all readers
    that accessed the the page prior to deletion have been
    committed.
    
    If table function ADMIN_GET_TAB_INFO or ADMINTABINFO
    administrative view were called on a member that hasn't acceseed
    the <TARGET_TABLE>, this would cause this member to hold back
    the internal readLSN value for this <TARGET_TABLE>. This will
    cause db2 to not reuse the deleted pages of <TARGET_TABLE>
    properly even though the page is no longer in use.
    

Local fix

  • Simply issue "SELECT * FROM <TARGET_TABLE> LIMIT 1" on every
    member. This will help refresh the global internal readLSN.
    Use above as temporary workarounds and contact IBM DB2 Support.
