  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The SIGIO signal (number 29) is not used by DB2 on linux.  To
    prevent the default action of process termination, DB2 will
    ignore SIGIO after an initial data collection.
    
    The first time a SIGIO signal is received, db2 will generate
    some diagnostic data and continue running.  Subsequent SIGIO
    signals will be ignored by the process.
