Change JOURNALED_OBJECTS to only scan requested libraries/objects
select * from JOURNALED_OBJECTS WHERE OBJECT_LIBRARY = 'SYSIBM' and OBJECT_NAME = 'SYSDUMMY1';
When this SQL is run against the Journaled_Objects view, it scans all objects in all libraries. If there are objects locked that cannot be scanned, the underlying OBJECT_STATISTICS ignores the error but leaves the error condition in SQLCODE/SQLSTATE. Details of the locked objects will be in the job log with MCH2601.
Additionally, scanning all objects is a performance hit compared to checking a single object for journal info. If OBJECT_STATISTICS itself is scanning extra objects, that could impact performance of other processes that rely on this function under the covers.
