I'm running DB2 8.1 on a Sun Ultra-80 workstation. When I click on the tables selection under my instance in the Control Center GUI, I see the size of several db2sync processes shoot up to about 3GB each. The machine has only 4GB RAM, so the db2syncs begin to eat into half the swap space.

I tried reducing the buffer pool and heap sizes to get the sizes lower, but it's had no effect.

How do I reduce the size of the db2syncs?
