    One thing to consider when archiving transaction logs directly to TSM (soon to be called “Spectrum Protect” – thanks product marketing geniuses) or other vendor solutions: make sure that the storage manager administrators are aware of how frequently DB2 will be sending logs to the storage manager.

    With physical tape devices, the frequency at which DB2 archives logs may cause problems as it may tie up tape drive(s); or, when other systems are backing up and using tape drives, it may cause DB2 log archives to have to wait in a queue (potentially filling the log file system). Storage Manager admins will often define a disk pool so that these frequent operations aren’t going directly to tape.
