With the increasing use of autonomic technologies, DB2 servers can produce large message logging files, administrative notification log files, and event log files. This is especially true in large warehouse environments with many logical and physical partitions. When a fault occurs, the database manager can produce vast amounts of diagnostic data for first failure data capture (FODC) purposes. This increase in logging activity can lead to increased file system space consumption and manageability issues. Allowing the db2diag.logfile to grow... [More]
