Error description

  • The stacks might vary a bit but you would see something like
    this one below that
    includes pdLog() and pdEDUHoldsLatches():
    
        #0  0x00007f2f1510019d in pdEDUHoldsLatches ()
        #1  0x00007f2f152b1b51 in pdLogInternal ()
        #2  0x00007f2f152d0d6f in pdLog ()
        #3  0x000000000040cbad in DB2main ()
        #4  0x00007f2f1ad596bb in sqloEDUEntry ()
    
    The indicator here stays pdEDUHoldsLatches ()
    
    In this specific case the problem was that the license resticted
    the number of CPU cores and attempted
    to print the following message when it trapped:
    
      Due to the license limitation, the instance is limited to
    cores: NNN
    
    However it might be possible to hit the same issue in some other
    conditions.
