    When a reader without holding a lock (e.g. ISO(UR) or ISO(CS))
    uses DPSI to retrieve and order data by DPSI key columns, the
    keys may be updated by another thread. When Db2 detects a
    change in the key, Db2 will skip the row and fetch the next
    one based on the order of the key. However, Db2 incorrectly
    uses the changed key instead of the previous key which has
    the correct position to perform the next fetch. This causes
    Db2 to abend in a failed sanity check when Db2 detects the
    retrieved data is out of order during the fetch-next

Problem conclusion

  • Db2 DPSI data retrieval logic has been fixed to preserve the
    previous key position for fetch-next processing when Db2 skips
    a row due to a change in the key values.
