    Starting in IBM i 6.1, logical files, SQL views, and SQL indexes will be journaled, even if you do not change your environment. Why did the operating system starting journaling your logical files? Why are some journaled and some not journaled? How can you end journaling for some of them or start journaling for others? This technote addresses these questions and more.
