You are trying to use the RMU/SHOW STATISTICS, Tools menu, TERMINATE IMAGE option.
The RMU/SHOW STATISTICS, TERMINATE IMAGE documentation states the following:
"%RDMS-F-IMGABORTED, image aborted at privileged user request".
Note that the process itself is not terminated, only the image is terminated.
This is the preferred operation as this operation does not cause the database to be frozen during
You attempt to terminate a long-running process using the TERMINATE IMAGE option so that a DBR process is avoided and the database freeze lock is not requested.
The long-running process has not completed an SQL statement.
However, a database recovery (DBR) process is created and the database freeze lock is taken out.
