Agents Waiting for Tokens alarm

The Agents Waiting for Tokens alarm becomes active when the number of agents waiting for a token (a permission to run) within the database reaches a threshold percentage.

This alarm has been predefined with a Low severity level. The underlying metric for this alarm can be adjusted to suit your environment by using the Metric Editor.

What you can do

Determine whether the current value for the MAXAGENTS database configuration parameter is appropriate for your system. Some environments might use the MAXAGENTS parameter value to limit the number of processing tokens, thereby limiting the amount of execution concurrency in the database manager. Although this strategy might be beneficial to the system as a whole, it can impact applications, causing problems such a high percentage of agents awaiting tokens.
