Running db2dart in a db2 with dpf ( aka EEE ) environment
The documentation I found from IBM for db2 9.5 LUW on the db2dart command was not clear about what happens when you run it in a partitioned database environment. Tonight I had a need to run it on a 40 partition tens of terabyte range database.
The behavior that I observed is that db2dart only inspects the partition it is connected to when you invoke it. I also observed it did not use a lot of resources. So I ran it in parallel on all 40 data partitions at once.
I post this in case anyone else is pondering db2dart in a partitioned database environment….
