At one time our Appliance Data Pool was 78% used. Several users faced -904 message without any extra information. They got this message when running Queries with a lot of output (multiple Gb´s).....we saw that the reason was in the area of the spill-to-disk area. Adding more volumes to the Appliance Data Pool solved the issue. Problem was that we became aware of this issue by the errors endusers were facing. No warning messages were shown in the system log in advance so we could get warmed earlier. We would like to get a arning when a specific threshold is reach so we could act in adance.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Benefit will be that we can act on the message (f.i. adding extra dasd to the pool) when the threashold is reached once. I know that there are always situation to think of that we gonna be too late but every situation where we could be pro-active is one. Being confronting with this issue because an end-users query is failing is not a good situation.|
How should it work?
When one or multiple users are running queries with big resultsets we would like te see warning message in the syslog when the spill-to-disk area reaches a certain threshold, so our system automation could act on this.
|Priority Justification||Medium because for now our issue is solved by increasing the Appliance Data Pool|
