Two SAS jobs we submitted recently ran correctly at first, but didn't end normally. The jobs kept using cpu resources but were not doing any additional useful processing. The firs one abended when the cpu time limit was hit; we canceled the second one. The jobs have only two simple steps, a query to a development DB2 table and a sort of the result set.

Are you running these jobs in batch?
What can you see in the log file?
If yo have trouble to see in what step you jobs is halting, try use the -logparm "write=immediate" system option, and potentially -altlog.
Since you are querying DB2, there might be a log there to whether your queries have been committed or not.
