Error description

  • If the system is in a highly stressed situation and db2_all is
    executed in parallel in the background, standard outputs for
    some nodes might be missing.
    When db2_all is executed in parallel in the background, db2_all
    checks the PID of each background process, but some background
    processes could finish before the PID existence checking.
    In this case, db2_all would not print the command outputs of
    such background processes from the buffer files to the standard
    output.
    

Local fix

  • Check the buffer file stored on each node instead of standard
    output of db2_all
