This topic provides additional information about the Lock Info data collector that may be helpful.

The following parameters are passed to the Lock Logger database utility.

Parameter Description
Run continuously No
Number of sessions 1
Character set * (default character set)
Table name to write lock log entries lockLoggerTableyyyyMMddHHmmss
Utility to create table Yes
Time constraint at or later than One hour before previous collection time
Time constraint at or prior to * (current time)
Object constraint * (all objects)

When the Lock Info collector is not executing, there should be only one lock table in the database of the database user being used for data collection. The table name starts with "lockLoggerTable" and ends with a unique timestamp. If there is more than one lock table, older tables can be safely dropped as they are not being used by the DCS.
