Resolving the problem

Search for Informix APARs.

An APAR (Authorized Program Analysis Report) represents a formal report to IBM development of a problem caused by a suspected defect in a current unaltered release of an IBM program. After the report is filed, the IBM development team reviews the suspected defect to determine the appropriate disposition of the APAR, taking action to resolve those confirmed as actual defects in the IBM program.

IBM customers can obtain information regarding reported APARs from any of the IBM Product Support Centers. To access one of the Informix Product Support Centers, visit the Informix Product Family Support page.

APAR status

Error description  
When querying the sysmaster database syssqlstat table, the sqs_statement column shows an incorrect sql statement for the session

Local fix
As workaround, instead of using column syssqlstat.sqs_statement, we can get correct results (sql statement) if retrieving column syssqexplain.sqx_sqlstatement. This other SMI table (syssqexplain) can be joined to syssessions by the session id (sqx_sessionid).

Problem summary  
The sysmaster:syssqlstat column displayed the wrong sql statement for the sqs_statement column, and this was corrected.

Problem conclusion  
Fixed in 9.40.xC9
