Hey Rob,

Well technically, I guess you mean your receivers or receiver libraries are
huge.. ;)
But wouldn't that primarily be a function of how many you retain ?

And what advantage or implication is there for journaling that DB2
Multisystem brings to the table?

Larry,

IBM is giving more and more examples of using partitioned tables. Even
for locally stored data. So, we may not yet "have" to do it; we "want" to
do it. We may not yet be in the area of the partition (aka member) is too
big and we "have" to have partitioning. However we do some serious
journal scraping. Our journals are jaw dropping huge compared to our data
libraries.

PRTDSKINF *LIB
% of Size in
Library Owner Disk 1000 bytes
#MXJRN MIMIXOWN 41.24 2260022186.0
ERPLXF SSA 8.00 438505435.1
...

So if I want to partition pricing history (for example) by month and year
that's my business.

Working with our BP to configure a new POWER8 box...

Just a small S814 (8286-41A), P05 tier, using 1 core for IBM i

One addition I'd asked for was DB2 Multisystem (5770-ss1 option 27).
Simply because I'd like to be able to have locally partitioned tables;
particularly for historical data.

$25,000

Are you kidding me IBM? One LICPGM cost more than the rest of the OS?

That's just nuts.

Mainly just venting, as I don't expect this post do solve anything.
