Modifying the Threshold for DB2 or DB2 MultiNode Log File Backups
When you install the DB2 Agent, you specify a DB2 archive log path.
The Commvault software stores DB2 archive logs in this staging path to avoid a log backup job for each log archival request.
When you perform an archival log operation, the Commvault software automatically starts a command-line log backup, and then remove the archive logs from the archive log path when the size of all the archive logs (in MB) is equal to or greater than the additional setting value.
The default is 10000 MB.
Note: If you want the log files to go directly to media, then set the sDb2ThresholdALFS additional setting to 1.
- To the DB2 client, add the additional setting as shown in the following table.
For instructions on how to add additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Adding or Modifying Additional Settings from the CommCell Console.
The size of the archive logs in MB that trigger the software to start a log backup.
What to Do Next
Perform an archival log operation to verify that the setting has taken effect.
