Online DB2 backup including logs also includes "old" logs


I'm trying to understand the way the first log file will be selected when an online backup (including logs) is created.

My example:

The online backup started at 18.04.2012 01:00 and included the logs S0010002.log - S0010007.log. It finished at 18.04.2012 05:05.

Why is the backup considering the logs S0010002 - S0010004, as they where already inactive at the point the backup started?


S0010010.LOG 18.04.2012 12:42:22

S0010009.LOG 18.04.2012 10:36:59

S0010008.LOG 18.04.2012 08:31:59

S0010007.LOG 18.04.2012 05:05:14

S0010006.LOG 18.04.2012 04:28:17

S0010005.LOG 18.04.2012 02:48:49

S0010004.LOG 18.04.2012 00:17:03

S0010003.LOG 17.04.2012 22:09:41

S0010002.LOG 17.04.2012 20:01:58

S0010001.LOG 17.04.2012 17:57:00


From my undertsanding the logs S0010005 - S0010007 should have been sufficient for a consistent backup.
