IBM® DB2® Text Search enables users to create full-text indices in a DB2 for Linux®, UNIX®, and Windows® database. Full-text indices are updated asynchronously, and it is necessary to explicitly and regularly start text index updates to ensure that an index properly reflects the content of the base table. A convenient mechanism to automate this is to use a scheduler to start regular updates in the required frequency. This article provides information about scheduling options and discusses troubleshooting the default scheduling mechanism.
