DB2 Connect - db2syscs.exe & db2diag.log

DB2 Connect - db2syscs.exe & db2diag.log
I’m an old mainframer who has recently inherited our DB2 Connect Server
and Software so please speak s-l-o-w-l-y !!!!

I have 2 questions...

1) db2syscs.exe pegged our DB2 Connect box this morning and only allowed
minimal traffic to go through to the enterprise server... I have looked
through db2diag.log and couldn't find anything abnormal. Any ideas on
where I could find further log information or what may have caused this ???

2) While researching problem 1, I found that the db2diag.log contained
several years of log records and has grown quite large... Any
recommendations on what is the best way to purge/compress this file ???

Thanks in Advance !!!

For your second question, deleting the file will not cause DB2 any troubles
(as long as you don't need the info). DB2 will create a new empty file.

For your first question, I would also be interested in that answer.
