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

Subject: [DB2-L] - Problem with LOBVALA setting for (large) XML document construction

-- This email has reached the Bank via an external source --

Folks,

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 size.

Would the value of LOBVALA have to match this ? Anything else we'd need to change if we are increasing LOBVALA (any other parameters related) ?

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.

Thanks

Phil
