What linux program to use to compress DB2 log files with the best compression ratio?
I thought that these log files would be text type files. But viewing them didn't prove this. I tried to use gzip and zip with up to 88% compression ratio. Which is pretty good.
Still my question is valid. Is there any 'recommended' program to compress DB2 log files?
UPDATE2 - results of my own comparision using maximum/best compression
5.1M 7zip.mx9.7zip 7.0M tarbzip2.bzip2 8.8M targzip.tgz 8.8M zip.zip
