PXM3205 DETECTOR COLLECTION TASK STALLED TSKNBR=00 DB2=D2Q1 

 



I see this message in my Xmanager task 

PXM3205 DETECTOR COLLECTION TASK STALLED TSKNBR=00 DB2=D2Q1 

 

then an Abend

what can be causing this?

 

Environment

z/os db2

Resolution

This is usually caused by a dispatching priority problem with the Xmanager 

 

The operating system dispatching priority assigned to the Xmanager address space 

can be of concern when collection is active. 

Selected collection components executing within the Xmanager address space require 

CPU cycles to be obtained at a comparable level to the application workload being generated. 

 

We recommend that you assign Xmanager a dispatching priority equal to or higher 

than the dispatching priority of the DB2 system services or database services address spaces. 

If your site has address spaces that use DB2 and are assigned dispatching priorities higher 

than DB2, then the dispatching priority assigned to Xmanager should be equal to or 

higher than their dispatching priority. 

Also, Xmanager needs a high dispatching priority to keep up with SQL trace data 

generated when you use the CA Detector SQL trace facility. 

If the Xmanager dispatching priority is lower than the address space 

generating the activity, SQL trace data can be lost and reporting 

can become inaccurate. 

If this occurs, messages indicating that trace data is being lost appear on the syslog.
