    Can any one guide me on this?

    I have a db2 database(DB2 9.7) installed on a system1.Now I want to move the contents of a particular schema to another db2 database(DB2 9.7) which resides on system2. Before doing this how can I check whether system2 is capable of holding the data which i want to move?

    I have a bit knowledge on tablespace and containers. But not getting how to calculate the exact space required to store the data. Please help me.

    Thanks in advance

    if statistics are up-to-date
    look for npages in sysibm.systables for data * pagesize for tablespace
    or average row length * nbr of rows
    check index-length + some bytes overhead * nbr of rows for indexes
