Running db2split

After creating your configuration and partitioning map files, you must decide where you want to run db2split. Apart from processor power, the other main consideration is the amount of disk space you have available to hold the partitioned files. You need at least the same amount as that taken up by the source data.

The following are the steps to run db2split:

  1. Create the configuration file (using db2split.cfg as a sample) and the partitioning map file, if you have not done so already.

  2. Execute db2split as follows:
      db2split -c <configfile>

When you split the files, db2split writes header information to each data file that it creates. For details, see "db2split Header Information".
