    Abstract

    This IBM® Redbooks® Analytics Support Web Doc describes how to maximize the performance of IBM DB2® backups. Backing up a database is a critical part of any disaster recovery plan. Making sure that the backup completes in a reasonable time frame means that there is always a valid backup available in case of emergency. This document describes the following elements that are critical to good backup performance:

    • The backup process model
    • Basic backup performance concepts
    • Backup performance considerations
    • Monitoring backup performance with the DB2_BAR_STATS registry variable

    This document applies to all versions of DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
