A buffer pool is an area of main system memory that is used for holding pages of data that have been fetched from the tablespace. In IBM DB2, each tablespace is associated with a buffer pool. Adding more space to a buffer pool enhances the performance of the database.
You must also create additional buffer pools with 16-KB and 32-KB page sizes for sorting and other SQL processing. A sample configuration is shown in Table 27.
Different operating systems support different maximum amounts of IBM DB2 addressable memory. Depending on the memory configuration of a given server, the suggested pool sizes for BUF4K and BUF16K buffer pools might exceed these maximums, requiring you to allocate a smaller percentage. To determine the optimal buffer pool sizes, use IBM DB2 monitoring features.
