IDS 12.10 syspurge enhancement

Description:

We are experiencing locking errors during IBM Informix Dynamic Server syspurge causing a failure to complete syspurge specifically with tables using interval fragmentation. We understand that currently IBM cannot guarantee that there will not be concurrency issues however, we are requesting an enhancement to mitigate exclusive locking issues while using online attach and detach functions.

Use Case:

Our payment systems process financial transactions constantly and can not be turned off without significant efforts. We have implemented interval fragmentation on high volume tables and the detach functionality is consistently failing. This means our intent to automate a purge strategy using interval fragmentation is not working.
