Modifying the Threshold for DB2 Log File Backups

By default, the archive log path that you specify when you install the DB2 Agent holds 1000 archive log files. When the archive log files reach this threshold value, an automated log backup starts.

You can change the threshold at which the automated log file backup starts.


  • To the DB2 client, add the additional setting as shown in the following table.
