00060, 00000, "deadlock detected while waiting for resource"

Cause:  Transactions deadlocked one another while waiting for resources. 

Action: Look at the trace file to see the transactions and resources involved. Retry if necessary.

The AE SERVER is an event driven/triggered application

Every time an AE OBJECT is activated a STATISTIC entry must be made – AE is a transaction oriented program and can only start with the next transaction when the previous one completed.

AE measures each database statement. If the statement takes more than 1 second this statement is written in the LOG for information. (Message 3524/3525).

AE measures each transaction. If the transaction takes more than 2 seconds this transaction is recorded (Message 3434).
