Hello guys,
lately there has been a lot of logging in our diag file anytime a SQL statement fails(my initial analysis, might be wrong though). Below is the content of the diag file when I issue a sql statement which contains error:

2003-03-29-11.33.08.077843 Instance:db2inst1 Node:000

As you see this is lot more content I can imagine which gives rise to couple of questions:
1. Why in the log it mentions the TRANSLATE function?
2. Why this much log content

Any help is greatly appreciated.
