Workspace Db2 AI for z/OS
Created by Guest
Created on Nov 21, 2022

Db2 AI should discover and prevent deadlocks, for example in situations where programs that previously have been in deadlock situations are expected to deadlock again.

In deadlock situations, one of the involved programs will be rolled back, resources have been unnecessarily used and DBA’s must spend time investigating deadlocks. In transaction intensive systems deadlocks also may cause response time delays or other availability problems in the Db2 subsystem or in other Db2 objects where the rolled back processing helds locks.

 

Deadlocks are seldom solved, because most often program changes are required. Business are not so keen prioritize such work because they don’t see the business value in it.

    I agree with the description of the problem, some application teams take deadlocks very seriously and try to solve them while others simply don't care if you cannot prove a big enough customer (end user) impact. Having Db2 identify problem batch/transactions (with historical data and packages being unchanged, or something similar) would be quite helpful.
