Data Management warm backup

Hot backup for KVM / libvirt /

Starting with DB2® for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 10.1,
your database data can be managed according to how frequently it is
accessed. Termed multi-temperature database management, frequently
accessed data (hot and warm data) is stored on fast storage devices
and rarely accessed data (cold data) is stored on slower storage devices.
Archived data is considered to be dormant and best stored on cold
storage devices. For the IBM® PureData™ System for Operational Analytics,
hot and warm data is stored in the /db2fs file
system and cold data is stored in the /bkpfs file

data management gives you the ability
to dynamically move infrequently accessed data (cold data) to a lower-cost
storage device used for cold data and data archiving purposes. The aim is to keep frequently accessed data (hot
and warm data) on fast, short access-time storage devices for only
as long as the data remains hot and warm.
Over time, hot and
warm data, stored in the /db2fs file system set
of table space containers, is accessed less frequently (becomes cold
data). At that point, you can dynamically move the data to the cold
data storage group in the /bkpfs file system
on your data archiving storage device.

As a guideline for using
the /bkpfs file system to store cold data, always
retain enough storage space on /bkpfs for a single
full database backup. This storage space on /bkpfs can
be used in upgrade or expansion situations where an outage needs to
be minimized, and a full backup to local disk is the fastest method
of backing up data. Determine the space needed for a full backup image
by noting the average and largest backup image size per database partition
across the entire system. The remainder of the space can be used for
storing cold data. Cold data is data that is no longer subject to
updates, but can be subject to being read. It is suggested that you
create storage groups to assist in this multi-temperature data management
process. For the procedure to create a cold
data storage group on the /bkpfs file system,
see: Creating a core warehouse cold data storage group on the /bkpfs file system and moving cold data.

As the data warehouse
grows, freeing up capacity in the /db2fs file
system by moving cold data to the /bkpfs file
system becomes more important.

Important: The /bkpfs GPFS™ file system is designed for fast local DB2 database backups and cold data
storage. Using the /bkpfs file system
for active (hot and warm) data storage can result in the loss of adequate
