  No modifications to the schema where made.
Load Program Modifications:
  No modifications to the load programs were made.

Benchmark Configuration Information
Isolation Requirement Info:
  The benchmark meets the isolation level requirements by version column
    checking on entities against the database.
  The ItemEnt bean was cached for 20 minute intervals using
    the WebSphere JPA Object Cache mechanism.
Durability Requirement Info:
  To ensure database durability, RAID10 was used for the
    database logs maintained on the external storage.
    A total of 16 x 73GB disks were used for the log.
Storage Requirement Info:
  Over the course of a 85 minute run at an injection rate of
    1725, the database storage for database system increased by
    16.94 GB.  Given a linear scale, a 24 hour run at the same
    injection rate would increase storage for database system
    by 287 GB.  One RAID10 disk arrays were used to create the
    filesystem space for the database.  The array contained
    16 x 73GB disks providing 584 Gb GB of storage.

Other Benchmark Information
  DNS round robin load balancing was used and hosted on the database machine
  All network connections were 1Gbps

General Notes
All exceptions in driver logs are from Optimistic Concurrency Checking.
These exceptions are expected in the benchmark.

The IBM DB2 Universal JDBC Drivers is a type 4 driver.

DB2 uses "Soft" checkpoint to ensure that no updates remain unflushed for
longer than the allowed time.

When DB2 UDB Server changes a database table with an update, insert, or delete
operation, the change is initially made in memory, not on disk. When there is
not enough space in the memory buffer to read in or write additional data pages,
DB2 UDB Server will make space by flushing some modified pages to disk.
Modified pages are also written to disk as part of the "Soft" checkpoint to
ensure that no updates remain unflushed for longer than the allowed time.
Before a change is made to the database, it is first recorded in the
transaction log. This ensures that the database can be recovered completely
in the event of a failure. Using the transaction log, transactions that
started but did not complete prior to a failure can be undone, and
transactions recorded as complete in the transaction log but not yet written
to disk can be redone.

DB2 UDB uses a write-ahead-logging protocol to guarantee recovery. This
protocol uses "Soft" checkpoint to write least-recently-used database pages
to disk independent of transaction commit. However, enough log information to
redo/undo the change to a database pages is committed to disk before the
database page itself is written. This protocol therefore renders checkpoint
unnecessary for DB2 UDB. For a more detailed description of the general
principles of the write-ahead-logging protocol, see the IBM research paper,
ARIES: A Transaction Recovery Method Supporting Fine Granularity Locking and
Partial Rollbacks Using Write-Ahead Logging," by C. Mohan, Database Technology
Institute, IBM Almaden Research Center. (http:// portal.acm.org/citation.cfm
