Log file tables in geodatabases in Db2

Enterprise geodatabases use log file tables to maintain lists of selected records. Records are written to log file tables for later use by the application in the following situations:

  • You (or a tool or other process you run) create a selection set of a specific sizeā€”more than 1,000 records in ArcGIS Pro or more than 1,000 records when object IDs are requested from a feature service.
  • You reconcile or post to a versioned geodatabase.

Log file tables are global temporary tables that store the IDs of the selected features so they can be redisplayed. This allows faster analysis and data processing.
