DB2 databases can be configured for different logging mechanisms like circular and archival logging. These mechanisms can be changed for a database at any point after the database is created. By default while creating a database in IBM DB2, db logging method is set to "Circular" logging which is generally not used in production environments. Archival logging is the recommend logging type for DB2 databases, since with this type of logging, one can recover/restore the database to a specific point in
time or to the end of logs.
