    Question Unanswered: does kill -9 brings the whole db2 instance down?

    On db2v_105FP1, I issued a kill -9 to all of db2 processes, but it continues to log Severe messages in db2diag.log even after half an hour after issuing kill -9. It shouldn't do that right because the whole instance should be down? So it should stop logging in db2diag.log as well? I just want this confirmed since i feel like it is abnormal. Thanks a lot

    No, it will bring the database down, not the instance.
    Somewhere between " too small" and " too large" lies the size that is just right.

    according to my opinion, this will bring down all processes
    there is no individual process by db only by instance..
    maybe the fmcd is configured and autorestart activated...
