Issue/Introduction

In a data sharing group, IDB2 Stats history (option 2) lists the data at irregular intervals rather than 1 minute intervals as defined in the IDDCPRMS sysparm member..
Other Data Collectors list data with 1 minute intervals as expected.  Could external factors contribute to irregular time intervals being displayed?  

Environment

IDB2 r19, DB2 v12

Cause

The IDB2 DC joblog reflects problems getting data from DB2 for the given time period:

Explanation of the Reason Code 00E60838: 
On a READS request for IFCID 0254, a resource was unavailable while attempting to collect statistics for a specific group buffer pool. 

Resolution

The irregularities are likely attributable to known CPU-contention on the system.
