Concurrent I/O on Aix: When?

P: n/a
Anybody know when DB2 is going to support Concurrent I/O on Aix... I
heard it was coming but I don't know when?

Thanks

It's definitely there in Stinger -- where you can create/alter
tablespaces and add a keyword 'no filesystem caching' to bypass
the filesystem cache.

I think that if you mount the filesystem with concurrent IO
enabled (i.e. mount -o cio /yourfs) DB2 will still work fine, but
I'm not 100% on that.

Well I know that currently there is regsitry variable that supports
direct IO on AIX and is a supported configuration by db2 support. My
question about the file system no cache tablespace option would be on
AIX does that mean DB2 is going to use DIRECT I/O or Concurrent
I/O(which is DIRECT I/O w shared read locks).

Also does anyone know if I mount my filesystems with Concurrent I/O
options is that currently a supported configuration on AIX for db2? I
will probably have to call but if any one knows that would be great...

Thanks,
Scott
