    If you don't have an overflow log path set then Db2 may have to retrieve log files and so they will go under this directory.


    /logpath/NODExxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/ - this is where the active files are located

    /logpath/NODExxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/ - this is where retrieved log files go if no overflow log path is set


    In pureScale you may even see:

    /logpath/NODExxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/

    /logpath/NODExxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/LOGSTREAMyyyy/

    /logpath/NODExxxx/LOGSTREAMxxxx/LOGSTREAMzzzz/


    This is all part of the logging design of the product.
