Redesign of cleanup on remote cursor load of LOB data
Customer migrated from DB2 9.1 on Solaris to DB2 9.7 on Linux. As restore is not supported between different endian architecture, load by remote cursor was used for data movement. There was one single table storing about 400 GB of LOB data (BLOB), total size of database was about 500 GB. The remote cursor load of LOB data exploits the temp tablespace by creating temporary files and runs cleanup only at the end of load. This leads to disk full condition as the temporary files used 1.5 TB which was the size of the underlying filesystem. PMR was opened, conclusion was that the design of the load needs a cleanup of the temporary files at the end of the whole table. It is not currently possible to periodically cleanup the temporary files, this desgin change is required to avoid the disk full condition.
