Deleting an image catalog and its related IFS.files using this command
DLTIMGCLG IMGCLG(myImgClg) KEEP(*NO)
causes the disks to be 100% busy. This simply kills the system, putting everything to a halt. And it can not be interrupted once started. I have experienced this once on an production system -- nothing worked for 20 minutes. Users were very happy.
To me it looks like that when the ifs-files are to be deleted an instructon is called deep in the system that doesn't have any limitation on the load on the disks and it doesn't returns controls to the calling program till it is finished. It just uses all resources it can allocate.
