FAQ of db2fmp messages in the db2diag.log

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What do these messages from the db2fmp process mean?

Cause


This technote provides some FAQs regarding messages in the db2diag.log in regards to db2fmp processes used to run non-SQL routines such as Java and C.
In some cases the fenced userid may not have permission to write errors to db2diag.log file. For example there is a db2fmp related error such as SQL1131 or SQL4304, but the db2diag.log does not contain any entries. This may be caused by incorrect permission settings by the last process which wrote to the db2diag.log. On UNIX/Linux these would be the umask settings.

$ ls -la ~/sqllib/db2dump/db2diag.log
-rw-rw-rw- 1 db2inst1 system 26827 Apr 24 20:51 /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2dump/db2diag.log

The temporary work-around is to modify the permission of db2diag.log so everyone can write to it.

chmod 777 db2diag.log


Scenario #1: SQL1042 / -1042

This could be caused by many different causes.

1 (a) Threads in db2fmp process

When the DB2 registry variable DB2_MAX_THREADS_PER_FMP is set you may see the messages below which can be safely ignored. This registry variable was introduced as an enhancement to DB2 via IZ08425.

In some cases the SQL1042 is a legitimate error so its important to note that in this scenario "Max number of thread in fmp reached; no thread created" is the cause of the SQL1042. The SQL1042 can be safely ignored.

Please note that the SQL1042 is transparent to the application, so no errors will be returned to the application. DB2 automatically starts a new db2fmp process to service the existing or subsequent requests.

1 (b) Operating system resource issue

The messages are very similar to Scenario #1 (a) so how do we determine if the SQL1042 is legitimate? Work backwards and look for preceding messages originating from the same PID and TID.

In the case below we see the source of the error is originating from the operating system (OSERR) and the operating system API which returned the error (pthread_create). pthread_create() is an AIX API indicating that the operating system was unable to create a new thread in the db2fmp process. The root cause is likely an operating system limitation or resource issue when trying to create an additional thread due to the EAGAIN return code.

For Java routines another possibility is insufficient Java heap. Resolve by increasing JAVA_HEAP_SZ to a value larger than the default.

SQL1042C An unexpected system error occurred.



1 (c) AIX platforms using Power7 processors

There is an incompatibility between the IBM JDK bundled with DB2 v9.7 and Power7. For details refer to the link db2setup or db2fmp (Java) abnormally terminated on Power7

1 (d) Permission issue

Ensure the DB2 instance home directory has the permission below, otherwise the db2fmp may not be able to access files located in ~/sqllib/function

/home $ ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 14 db2inst1 db2admg 4096 Aug 04 10:51 db2inst1/


Check the stored procedure binaries in ~/sqllib/function to ensure they are world readable because the fenced userid is usually not the instance owner.

/home/db2inst1/sqllib/function:
-rw-r--r-- 1 db2fenc fencgrp 875 Jul 29 14:24 DUMMY_JAVASP.class


Check the permission of ~/sqllib/adm/db2fmp and ~/sqllib/adm/db2fmp32 to ensure the "other" group has privileges to execute these two files.

chmod o+r db2fmp
chmod o+r db2fmp32


After the change you should see:

-r-xr-xr-x 1 db2inst1 db2admg 59384 Jan 1 17:09 db2fmp
-r-xr-xr-x 1 db2inst1 db2admg 74743 Jan 1 17:09 db2fmp32


Check permission of DB2 installation directory. If DB2 was installed as root installation then file permission should indicate ownership by "bin" and not another userid. Incorrect permission on installation directory would cause all routines to fail with SQL1042.

/opt/ibm/db2/v105fp5: ls -la
total 196
drwxr-xr-x 43 root sys 4096 Dec 9 11:20 .
drwxr-xr-x. 6 root sys 4096 Aug 28 10:17 ..

drwxr-xr-x 2 bin bin 4096 Nov 29 2014 adsm
drwxr-xr-x 4 bin bin 12288 Nov 29 2014 bin
...


To verify if installation is root or non-root check to see if installation directory is outside of user's home directory via "db2level" command. Another alternative is the db2ls which displays the DB2 installation locations and the user id which installed DB2.

/opt/ibm/db2/v105fp5: db2level
DB21085I This instance or install (instance name, where applicable: "db2inst1")
uses "64" bits and DB2 code release "SQL10055" with level identifier "0606010E".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v10.5.0.5", "s141128", "IP23633", and Fix Pack "5".
Product is installed at "/opt/ibm/db2/v105fp5".




Scenario #2: Executing long running query

A remote DB2 client has abnormally terminated when executing a long running query which includes a call to a routine. These messages are informational in nature and can be ignored. However the application should contain some exception handling logic to handle any abnormal terminations. Under the covers DB2 will clean up any non-SQL routines being executed on behalf of the connection. One of the side effects is that the db2diag.log may contain a 0xFFFFFB38 ( SQL1224)

In the example below the message originating from the db2fmp process about "The database manager is not able to accept new requests..." is misleading. The message is originating from the JDBC (db2jcc.jar) used internally by the DB2 server to execute a Java routine and can be ignored. There is nothing wrong with the DB2 database server.

When executing Java routines one additional side effect is that the message below will appear in the db2diag.log. This message is misleading because there is nothing wrong with the database manager on the DB2 server. The message originates from the JDBC driver which is local to the DB2 server used to execute Java routines. This message can be safely ignored.

Scenario #3: SQL1131 or SQL4302

This indicates the non-SQL routine was abnormally terminated. The severity of these messages can be misleading because they are reported at "Level: Severe", when in some cases they can be safely ignored.

To determine if this is a legitimate error, check the application logs to look for failures. These errors may appear infrequently ( e.g. few times a month ), but if they appear very frequently or if the application cannot call any non-SQL routines, then this indicates an issue which should be investigated.

Legitimate SQL1131 errors:

If all calls to non-SQL routines fail, this indicates a configuration or environmental problem outside of DB2. For example, some systems have security software installed preventing db2wdog process from being created. Since db2wdog forks db2fmp processes, it would prevent any non-SQL routine from running. Check with your system administrator regarding restrictive security software.

If a specific or set of non-SQL routines intermittently fail frequently, this may be an indication of a programming error by the author of the routine.


Scenario #4: Marking fmp as unstable

This message is returned when DB2 decides to shut down a db2fmp process and can be part of normal DB2 operations. DB2 automatically picks a new db2fmp or creates a new db2fmp process to execute any subsequent calls to stored procedures or UDFS.

To determine whether this message is more than informational please check for additional db2diag.log entries around the same timestamp which return a ZRC return code, 0xFFFFxxxx return code or an error from the operating system (OSERR). Please use the db2diag tool to decode these return codes.

This message may also be returned when:

  • DBM CFG parameter KEEPFENCED=NO since DB2 would terminate any db2fmp process after a routine has completed execution.
  • FORCE APPLICATIONS was issued or if "db2stop force" was called.

The SIGKILL can be safely ignored since it is returned when DB2 brings down the db2fmp.

The meaning of the stateFlags can be decoded via the chart provided in the technote below Accumulation of db2fmp (Java) processes.


Scenario #5: Messages related to Java memory

Please see the technote db2fmp (Java) Memory Issues in the links below.


Scenario #6: Data Partitioned System

On systems using data partitioning, please ensure that the fenced userid exists on ALL partitions and that the fenced userid is a member of the Instance owners group. Otherwise SQL1042C may be returned. Most of the DB2 table snapshot functions are implemented as non-SQL routines.

db2 "select count(*) from SYSIBMADM.TBSP_UTILIZATION"
SQL1042C An unexpected system error occurred. SQLSTATE=58004


Scenario #7: SQL0952N Processing was cancelled due to an interrupt.

If the application calling the routine cancelled the call, -952 will be reported in the db2diag.log. The application may have canceled the routine because there was an error or it may have logic to terminate the routine call if no result is returned within a timeout. To investigate further check the application log and the application developer to determine what may have caused the application to cancel the call the to routine.

The following entries would appear along with SQLCODE=-1224.

call sqlj.install_jar('file:/home/db2inst1/test.jar', 'test')
SQL4304N Java stored procedure or user-defined function "sqlejReadJar",
specific name "SQL120417123751400" could not load Java class
"COM/ibm/db2/app/sqlejProcs", reason code "5". SQLSTATE=42724

The db2diag.log will contain messages such as:

Try:

(A) Increase JAVA_HEAP_SZ

(1 ) Stop DB2

As the DB2 instance owner (default is db2inst1)
db2stop
db2 "update dbm cfg using java_hea_sz 16384"

As root, refresh the DB2 permissions:

/opt/IBM/db2/V9.7/instance/db2iupdt db2inst1

Note: Your DB2 installation location and DB2 instance name may be different
(2) Start DB2

db2start


(B) Change the fenced id to a different id to rule out there is something wrong with the fenced id's configuration

(1) As root create a new id such as db2fenc2 and change the fenced id to db2fenc2

(2) As root change fenced id from db2fenc1 to db2 instance owner for
test purposes

mkuser db2fenc2
chown db2fenc2 /home/db2inst1/sqllib/adm/.fenced

(3) Restart the DB2 instance for the above to take effect
db2stop
db2start


Scenario #9: SQL0443 rc=12 (Out of Memory) or ENOMEM

This indicates the fenced userid used to run the stored procedure did not have sufficient memory. The common cause is an incorrectly configured ulimit. This error may be returned when running user routines or DB2's internal routines

The db2diag.log will contain the entry below originating from db2fmp which lists the fenced userid's ulimits

134217728 Bytes = 131,072 KB is the current soft limit.


Check ownership of the file to determine fenced userid

$ ls -la /home/db2inst1/sqllib/adm/.fenced
-r--r--r-- 1 db2fenc db2fenc 0 Oct 15 10:57 /home/db2inst1/sqllib/adm/.fenced

Login as db2fenc to check its ulimits, we see DATA is limited to 131,072 KB.

User Limits, '/usr/bin/ulimit -a'
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) 131072
stack(kbytes) 32768
memory(kbytes) 32768
coredump(blocks) 2097151
nofiles(descriptors) 2000

Modify the .profile for db2fenc to include the line below. In this example we change it to unlimited, but you may want to only increase yours instead.

ulimit -d unlimited

Note: If you do not have the DBM CFG parameter KEEPFENCED=NO, the DB2 instance will need to be restarted for the change to take effect since the existing db2fmp processes will still be using the old ulimit values.

Another alternative to make the change permanent is to contact your system administrator to permanently add/modify an entry for db2fenc in /etc/security/limits (UNIX) or /etc/security/limits.conf (Linux).

To check current effective ulimit of a process:

Linux: cat /proc/ <db2fmp PID>/limits

AIX: prulimit.pl script provided by third party


Other Aids

The db2diag command can be used to translate any hexadecimal messages such as 0xFFFFFB38 or ZRC=0x8136001C code into a meaningful SQLCODE.

db2diag -rc FFFFFB38

Input ECF string 'FFFFFB38' parsed as 0xFFFFFB38 (-1224).
ERROR: ../sqz/sqlzwhatisrc.C:
Input ZRC 0xFFFFFB38 (-1224) cannot be identified as a V7 or V6 ZRC value
