In DB2 10.1 the database configuration parameter "mincommit" has been depricated.
Has IBM simply done away with the ability to group commits prior to writing to disk to reduce disk IO. ( Yes I know full well the impact of doing that, things you think are on disk that truly aren't and hence in a crash scenario potentially missing transactions ).
Did IBM state anywhere formally or informally why they did this ? Is there an alternate way of doing the same thing as mincommit with db2 ?
