    Unanswered: Hardware config for DB2

    Hi,

    someone asked me a question today, and I couldn't find the answer. Maybe someone here can give me a hint.
    Have you ever seen a paper about the suggested hardware configuration for DB2 UDB V8 on Linux? With HW Config I mean something like "... avoid processor caches under ...", "... do not use harddrives under ... and with transfer rates under ..." and such kind of things?

    And, if this doesn't make any sense, let me know it too!!!

    Thanks in advance,
    Rodney Krick

    I have not seen anything that specific. You can look at this redbook on DB2 on linux:

    http://publib-b.boulder.ibm.com/Redb...6899.html?Open

    It has a general overview of what to do.

    In my experience, get the best hardware you can afford. The biggest, fastest box with maximum RAM. If you are going to spend the bucks for the best DBMS, you should not put it on some whimpy server.

    Thank you very much Andy, you confirmed what I've answered. The point to the redbook was also great.
