Detector for DB2 for z/OS


The Detector for Db2 for z/OS (PDT) documentation indicates maximum POOL limit = 20 MB but the POOL parameter in the START(DTR) Modify
command can specify a value up to 9999. What unit is this? Does Xmanager convert the value?


Prior to PDT r16 the POOL size was specified in 1000 byte increments. It was changed to use MB. If the pool size is > 20 then Xmanager
assumes it is specified as a multiple of 1000 bytes and converts it to MB. Therefore a value of POOL(2000), i.e., kilobytes, is internally
converted to POOL(2), i.e., megabytes.
