There is a new setting in 8.5.2 FP3 and 8.5.3 (see SPR # KMUR63DF3V). This functionality allows an agent to retry to run after it failed because of a running compact.
Without this setting the agent will not run again until you restart Amgr or after the nightly agent cache refresh is done.
I personally think this retry should be the default behavior but IBM decided to make this only available thru setting DEBUG_AMGR_ENABLE_RETRY_ON_COMPACT=1
IMHO it's the wrong behavior right now and it should be changed to do a retry.
We have discussed with IBM about it and they might consider to change the default behavior for a future version.
