About log archiving
DB2 can write database archive logs by using several different methods. For a roll-forward recovery, you need both the database itself and the archive logs from the backup media. The DB2 parameters that specify an archive log method include the LOGRETAIN, USEREXIT, and LOGARCHMETH1 keywords.
The following topics describe the archive methods and how to specify an archive method in DB2.
See Using the VENDOR archive method.
See Using the user exit archive method.
The terms "VENDOR" and "user exit" describe the methods that DB2 supports for log archiving. Ensure that you understand how the terms are used in this manual.
