db2acd Process consumes all available CPU.

          We are on DB2 9.5 and we have recently updated the FixPak to 4 on the Sandbox environment.

The environment is flatlined on cpu with the db2acd process consuming as much cpu as it can. If you stop the system this process does not stop, you have to physically kill it.

Has anybody else had issues with this process ( db2 health monitor ), I think it was previously known as db2hmon.


We are not sure if the problem existed before the FixPak upgrade, however we cannot upgrade our FixPaks with confidence.


The operating system is aix 6.1.
