NAS for DB2 active logs

P: n/a
Anyone have any reservations about using NAS (Network Attached Storage) for
DB2 active logs in a high volume OLTP environment?

Using NAS to store active logs will reduce reliability of the solution
as it relies on NAS device and LAN availability(LAN is shared with
other applications so you can hardly guarante throughput). Also it
might to generate high traffic your LAN durning extended transactions
of OLTP.
I'd recommend you to use SAN or SCSI attached storage device...

The plan is to use dual logging to increase reliability. The LAN is a
private network that is dedicated for the NAS.

It has already been decided that NAS will be used for all data files (db2
instance and tablespaces) because that is the only enterprise storage
available to us. I just want to make sure that there is no problem using NAS
for DB2 active logs.
