Journaling - How many journals should I configure?
Note: This is publication is now archived. For reference only.
A frequently posed i5/OS™ question goes something like this, “I have 100 tables (files), should I try to route all the journal traffic into one master journal or would I be better off with perhaps 10 journals?" What are the pros and cons associated with each approach?”
The answer depends on what you’re trying to optimize: run-time performance, IPL recovery duration, target-side replay parallelism, or remote journal transport efficiency.
This Technote helps you think through the trade-offs.
