    Unanswered: free space after drop table

    using db2 ese LUW 10.1 fp 4 on linux
    after detaching partitions in a partitioned table we drop this detached table (after archive)
    all partitions have dedicated tablespaces (1 partition= 1 tablespace and indexes in different tablespaces)
    after the drop table - we can not immediately see the free space - sometimes it takes 5min but this month it took a complete day (after I executed alter ts reduce max on userspace1..)
    what is the exact condition that triggers the free of dropped tables pages
    all tablespaces are dms / automatic storage / reclaimable storage bit on

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    thanks for the update : seen this page but this not the case
    we drop the only table in this tablespace and we do not see freepages increasing : same as before drop table
    after some time/condition this will be freed and we can alter the ts reduce max
