Database Analyzer for DB2 for z/OS


A Database Analyzer Extract that previously worked now fails with MMgr-EXCP I/O errors when perfoming a scan.

The following errors can be found in the 'Collection of data statistics' output. These can be issued for any object type, for example:

MMgr-EXCP I/O error.  Call Technical Support          . RC=0008 RS=0000
Collection of UR - dbname.tsname.0001           - Incomplete   RC=8

Additonally the following messages may be issued in the JESMSGLG output

Has the number of objects being processed in this Extract increased since it last ran successfully? If so, PDA may have a storage problem that is related to the number of objects.


Release : 20.0

Component : CA Database Analyzer for DB2 for z/OS


If the Scan is currently using the EXCP access method, try using the VSAM access method instead for this Extract. EXCP does provide improved performance for elapsed time but it may be having a negative impact on storage.

To switch to using VSAM access for just this step, add the NOEXCP to the PARM options in the EXEC statement, similar to the following:


One other consideration is to reduce the number of objects being processed in this Extract Procedure, by moving some of the objects to another Extract Procedure and to then be processed in a separate step.
