We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Post your ideas
Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Real-time statistics with statistics profile can lead to deadlocks and lock timeouts
DB2 real-time statistics facility honors RUNSTATS options specified in the statistics profile, while performing synchronous statistics collection during statement compilation.
If the statistics profile contains ALLOW READ ACCESS option, this can lead to additional table-level S-locks being acquired (and waited for) the table of interest. Depending on other executed statements, and, specifically, having an IX-lock on the same table due to previous DML activity in the same transaction, this can lead to lock timeouts and/or deadlocks of the synchronous RUNSTATS execution.
As a result, statement execution fails at the compilation phase with error SQL0911N.
A workaround is to avoid setting ALLOW READ ACCESS option in the statistics profile. However, this option might give benefits in other situations - such as asynchronous RUNSTATS execution performed by the automatic maintenance tasks.
It would be better if RTS would ignore the ALLOW READ ACCESS option during synchronous statistics collection, allowing this option to be set for use by automatic maintenance tasks.
