Start with the default value. Look for exceptions with the indicated error codes in the Enterprise Server log files. Remember that under normal operations (no ongoing refragmentation) only half of the locks might be acquired by the client application.
To get information on allocated locks and locks in use, use the following command:
hadbm resourceinfo --locks
For example, the output displayed by this command might look something like this:
Node No. Avail Free Waits 0 50000 50000 na 1 50000 50000 na
Avail: Number of locks available.
Free: Number of locks in use.
Waits: Number of transactions that have waited for a lock.“na” (not applicable) if all locks are available.
To change the number of locks, use the following command:
hadbm set NumberOfLocks
The hadbm restarts all the nodes, one by one, for the change to take effect. For more information on using this command, see Configuring HADB in Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 High Availability Administration Guide.
