Error description

  • During online backup, DB2 checks minbuflsn and lowtranlsn in
    order to include required logs in the backup image. Under
    specific conditions:
    - there is no logging workload on the database
    - there is no active transaction holding lowtranslsn
    - SOFTMAX > 100
    Backup image might contain more logs than necessary for the
    restore which might impact the performance of the backup and
    restore procedure.

  • Use offline backup
