You will get virtually no argument from anybody that buffer pool management is important to good DB2 and application performance. Large buffer pools are a well known wisdom. There are many ideas on buffer pool management, including the number of buffer pools
The purpose of this article is to decode the DB2 backup and restore performance statistics that are now logged in the db2diag.log. It will also discuss some factors that influence backup performance and how the performance stats can be used to identify where performance bottlenecks exist.
