Strange Correlation IDs in DSNT501I and other messages
List -



I have not seen this before and I am curious how to interpret it.



In some DSNT501I messages the Correlation id looks like



###.@@@@@@@@



So the first part is numeric and the second part is a name (best guess it is a
name)



010.TPKNKSAL


The DSNT501I does not provide a lot of details on this display. I have been
searching the internet, webpages and manuals - but this is just to generic for
me to find the starting point to research this.



I think the first part may be a server agent, but I am not sure where to begin
tracking it down.



I would like to be able to explain what the correlation id represents.



Are there any displays or commands or ways I can use to identify what this is?





Any insight you can provide will be helpful



Thank you

These are background system tasks.

Some, but not all of them are documented in the sadly defunct with V12
diagnostics guide. The prefix of the task you're seeing, 010 in this
case points to a certain function in DB2, so 010 is buffer manager
component. you can find a full list of these functions in the DSNWMODS
member in SDSNSAMP. Some of the csects can also point to these
background tasks, so you can get a feel for what it's doing.

you can try dis thread(*) type(system) detail limit(*) scope(local) to
see a bit more

Cheers,

Kenny
