    Unanswered: informix 7.31 /Netbackup 4.5 Lock table..

    Good morning - has anyone ever seen the Lock table overflow when running a netbackup backup (using onbar -b -w -L 0) ? The system was backed up successfully hours before using Omniback and the same onbar command. The only difference in the the environments is the BAR_BSALIB_PATH that did refer to the Omniback library has been commented out of the onconfig file.
    Any help is appreciated

    I don't think that there is a correlation between
    a lock table overflow and your BAR_BSALIB_PATH
    onconfig parameter.
    This makes no sense.

    Does this happen every time when you backup
    your databaseserver and your BAR_BSALIB_PATH
    is not set ?

    You might consider increasing the onconfig parameter
    called LOCKS.
    This might help. However there might be an ugly written
    application, which is allocating many locks, so you
    might again run into this problem.

    You could download the BusyBee database monitor from
    my website for free. It looks (despite several other things)
    for applications which allocate a certain amount of locks:
