We are setting up the BCVs for v8.2 on Solaris. I read this below in an IBM white paper from 2002. Is this information about being able to do operations using the bufferpool during 'write suspend' still true?


set write suspend
The suspend command (db2 set write suspend for database) suspends all write operations to
the DB2 UDB database (i.e., to tablespaces and log files). Read operations are not suspended and are
thus allowed to continue. Applications can continue to process insert, update, and delete operations
utilizing the DB2 bufferpools. A database connection is required for issuing the suspend command. It is
recommended that you maintain the current session for executing the subsequent resume command.
