OS/DB Migration Question

Dear All,

We are doing OS migration , ie from HP Unix to Linux with DB2 9.5 to 9.7

The database size is 2TB , The export has been completed now we are importing into the target database.

We have splitted some of large tables, I would like to know whether can I import splitted tables tables in parallel?

For example I have splitted the table called EBAN into 24(Splits)

my question is can I export and Import this table in parallel?

Export Import








I want to import EBAN-1 ,EBAN-2 ....parallel

But as per the note 454173.

The table is not loaded in parallel (splitted export).

DB2 allows only one LOAD process per table

    My experience is if you submit all the splits in parallel it wont report any error, but it would import sequentially only . So basically you will see more R3load process running than actually import taking place, so its a waste of resources. So spread them.

    And if you are not doing so, that is you have submitted all the splits together, you need to ensure LOCKTIMEOUT is set to -1 , otherwise the waiting R3load process might timeout.
