LOBVALA? Isn’t that where Norse LOBs go when they die?

Subject: [DB2-L] - Problem with LOBVALA setting for (large) XML
-- This email has reached the Bank via an external source --
I'm trying to convert an XML construction SQL. This SQL has been in
production on DB2 for LUW for about 6 years, using data that we
crossload from DB2 for z/OS (at that time we didn't have a DB2 for
z/OS version with pureXML).
We are experiencing -
UNSUCCESSFUL EXECUTION CAUSED BY AN UNAVAILABLE RESOURCE: REASON
00C900D1. TYPE OF RESOURCE 00000907.
This appears to be a problem with DSNZPARM LOBVALA, which on our
development system is set to 2048 (KB I believe).
On DB2 for LUW, the XML that we produce comes to about 125 MB in
Would the value of LOBVALA have to match this ? Anything else we'd
need to change if we are increasing LOBVALA (any other parameters
Why is it LOBVALA that is being exceeded, not XMLVALA (which on our
system is set to 2097152) ? Is this just because we are testing the
SQL from Data Studio? At the end of our test we'd want to make this
a view and then use the view with an UNLOAD to produce a file.
