db2 File system caching ..

P: n/a
Raj
What is the purpose of file system caching while creating a tablespace?
Memory on the test server gets used up pretty quickly after a user
executes a complex query(database is already activated), after some
investgation i found out that most of it being consumed by filesystem
caching... thanks to Liam and Phil Sherman for their valuable
suggestions. Is it safe to turn off filesystem caching on every
tablespaceon the server?? or can we set DB2_MMPAP_READ=ON and
DB2_MMAP_WRITE=ON ?? what is the down side of it?? We do have a big
enough bufferpool...
