Lock information is as follows:
NodeNo: Node Number.
Avail: Total number of locks available on the node.
Free: Number of free locks.
Waits: Number of transactions waiting to acquire locks. This is cumulative.
One single transaction cannot use more than 25% of the available locks on a node. Therefore, transactions performing operations in large scale should be aware of this limitation. It is best to perform such transactions in batches, where each batch must be treated as a separate transaction, that is, each batch commits. This is needed because read operations running with repeatable read isolation level, and delete, insert, and update operations use locks that are released only after the transaction terminates.
