This article is for users planning to deploy DB2 on the Solaris 10 platform using a Sun Fire T2000 server.
The information here is based on experiments carried out on DB2 with the Solaris 10 OS on the Sun Fire T2000 server in Sun's Market Development Engineering (MDE) and Strategic Applications Engineering (SAE) Labs in Burlington, Massachusetts. These tests used various workloads to identify configurations that allow the right mix of performance and ease-of-use. Results may vary for other users and environments.
Tips are provided here to help system administrators and DBAs optimize DB2 deployed with the Solaris 10 OS and the Sun Fire T2000 architecture.
