About Storage Checkpoints

A Storage Checkpoint is like an online backup of a database, including partitioned databases, that contains a point-in-time database image. Storage Checkpoints can later be used to restore the image of the entire database to any earlier state recorded by the Storage Checkpoints. You cannot recover a container or a tablespace. Storage Checkpoints are used in a DB2 UDB EE environment. DB2 UDB EEE (SMP only) supports data partitioning across clusters of massively parallel computers.

Veritas Storage Foundation for DB2 uses the SFDB repository to determine the list of tablespaces, containers, and file systems for Storage Checkpoint creation and removal.
