Buffer pool analysis

Buffer pool analysis helps you manage buffer pools more efficiently by providing specific recommendations to adjust buffer pool sizes and threshold values.

If you are interested in background information about current buffer pool behavior, you can get in-depth statistical data, comprehensive reports, and easy-to-read graphic information for all buffer pools and their objects.

Buffer pool analysis helps you tune DB2® buffer pools and get the most out of your system resources. It lets you optimize memory usage by specifically recommending which buffer pools to change and by how much.

It allows you to:
  • Save central processing unit (CPU) cycles
  • Improve response times and elapsed times
  • Simulate buffer pool behavior
