    Unanswered: bufferpool hit ratio decreased

    Let's say the bufferpool hit ratio went down for index and/or data tablespaces.

    Additional info:

    - OLTP environment
    - No configuration changes (ie. no change to tablespaces/bufferpools assignment, bp size, config parameters...)
    - STMM is OFF
    - No SQL / workload change
    - Database has been active for some time
    - No snapshot info is available before / after bp hit ratio change

    What I think happened is db2 started fetching more data due to data change / runstats execution (should invalidate cached access plan) / access plan change. So, it started doing more async vs sync I/O / rows read vs. rows selected.

    Does this sound right? Can you think of anything else?

    Hi Bella,

    if you really can exclude the SQL / workload changes, then the most likely reason is a access plan change. This could be due to data growth or index fragmentation.
